Souveniers and gifts can be purchased from the curio shop.

These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
We loved this lodge. Spacious rooms overlooking desert, and the food was excellent. Very friendly st staff.
I don't feel this place was worth the expense. I am more comfortable in homestays so it may just be a matter of preference.
Excellent accommodation (apart from cold shower) and very good service. Shame we weren`t able to stay there longer but there too much to see!
A luxury place near Sesriem and Sossuslvei, with also a SPA inside (in general we're not used to this, but I think that sometimes and after almost 3500km it could be ok !)
Rooms could do with some maintenance, good restaurant with very friendly service, hotel staff not as friendly. Not a bad experience, but other places were more value for money.
A wonderful experience in the desert. We were all very impressed with the all-round quality of our experience there. The staff were exceptional in their efforts to make our stay the enjoyable event that it was.
Beautiful place to stay!! The food was absolutely stunning,the staff was excellent: Professional, efficient and VERY VERY Friendly!! And the facilities were great. Ten out of Ten! Now if only the Namibian authorities would do something about the roads I would go back there every year!!
This was great. A big spacious room with great beds for the 4 of us. Dinner the first night was an outstanding 5-course meal. The 2nd night was a disappointing buffet (not great food, not enough food and poorly presented). But all in all very nice and 2 nights there is about right in my opinion.
