These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
A very good alternative to the lodges inside Etosha. Beautiful campsite (but just 4 sites) and dinner room.
Extremely nice place, excellent service, close to the Etosha Anderson gate. Has been expanded since I last have been there and been greatly improved.
One of the best places we stayed. Friendly staff. Tasteful interior design. Very good food. For a family with children they have a nice family bungalow.
Toshari Lodge was o.k. In German: Aufgrund des Brandes des Restaurants im Februar diesen Jahres musste auf der Lodge viel improvisiert werden, was aber sehr gut gelang.
Fantastic experience. The Staff were friendly and helpful. The accommodation was lovely and so was the evening meal and entertainment. The perfect place to stay just outside Etosha.
Fantastic! Very nice rooms, great service. Loved the dinner outside with the fires blazing keeping you warm and such a lovely atmosphere. Very good price for such quality. We would go back again.
Very beautiful place, garden, pool, lounge and our luxury room was very beaufiful and peacufull. Excellent dinner and breakast, great game drive with Kelysha (some problem with the car). Very nice staying at all!
We had a great time with excellent game drives both days. The room a little disappointing as you would not use the word `luxury` to describe it, but we spent so little time in there it didn`t matter. Grounds, pool, food, staff all excellent. Again would highly recommend
Perfectly nice place to stay after a day in Etosha. Friendly service, food less good than other places we stayed. Nice and close to Etosha which we decided to revisit the next day to explore the west side of the park before heading off to Grootberg. That day was our best day on Safari by far!!
