By far the best place we have stayed on our Namibian trek.
Fantastic location overlooking the valley, infinity pool, and great dining room.
Rooms in blocks of 4 or 6 and we had room 40 right at the end - quite private

We checked out and paid the fee, we have allowed ourselves 4 hours before we need to be heading off to our next destination. Early morning is a good time to see wildlife and we weren't disappointed: Giraffe, Springbok, Gemsbok, Klipspringer, Eland, Mountain Zebra, Ostrich, Black Backed Jackal, but still no Elephants or Rhino! Les enjoyed his 4 ...
... proceed. Sometimes these tourist visits feel fake and a little rehearsed.
One of the things you notice as you leave the lodge is how much security is happening around you. There is a tall electric fence that surrounds the property. Security at the large gates you have to enter on arriving. We have a security man maintaining a presence over night around the campsite.
In town we are met by a modern Himba man called 'Marty' for us tourists. He ...
