Bambatsi's hosts pride themselves on taking really good care of their guests who enjoy the informal atmosphere here. The lodge is ideal for hiking and game viewing, as well as a base to visit the sites of Damaraland.
Bambatsi was one of the first guest farms established in Namibia and is a two hour drive away from Etosha National Park. Because it is set on a 1150m high plateau, not only does it have a spectacular view of the surrounding mopane landscape, but it also has a very pleasant annual temperature and climate.
There is a bar in the main building, and breakfast and dinner are served in either indoor or outdoor dining areas, depending on the weather. Lunch can be provided on request. Coffee/tea and cake are served in the afternoon.
Guests can enjoy a refreshing drink, whilst relaxing and unwinding by the swimming pool. Sipping a sundowner, whilst savouring a beautiful, Namibian sunset, is also a favourite here.
Accommodation is in 8 rooms.
Double rooms: 5 rooms that sleep 1 or 2 persons only. En-suite bathrooms, mosquito nets, international sockets and an in-room safe are standard.
Triple room: 1 room with 3 single beds and facilities similar to the double rooms.
Quad room: 2 rooms with 4 single beds with similar facilities similar to the other rooms.
Guests might like to stretch their legs on a walking trail through the mountains or in the mopane forest. There is a variety of animals and bird life to spot on route and on the farm, including kudu, oryx, zebra, eland and giraffe. Scenic farm drives can also be organized. Game can also be observed drinking and grazing, at the spotlit waterhole, from either the ranch's verandah or from the nearby hide.
Self-drive day trips to Vingerklip, Twyfelfontein and the Petrified Forest make Bambatsi an ideal base. Twyfelfontein has one of the most extensive displays of rock art in Africa. The carvings represent rhinoceros, elephant, ostrich and giraffe, as well as depictions of human and animal footprints.
After each tour, guests can look forward to a cup of afternoon tea or coffee, plus a slice of mouthwatering cake, in their return!
