The only good thing I can say is the meal I had in the restaurant was one of the best (zebra loin) and the restaurant staff were lovely. However, although it was cheap, the room reminded me of a prison cell and the shower was simply horrific in that a mere trickle of scalding hot water or freezing water came...

In contrary to the many bad reviews, me and my girlfriend had a very nice stay here. Of course there are much nicer rooms in the world, but for our stop over on our way to the Etosha park, this was perfect for us. The staff and owner are very friendly and nice, there is WIFI and the food is...

I stayed here 1 night as part of our organized tour from Cape Town to Vic falls, what a dump! On arrival we were informed that a water pipe leading to town had been damaged and there was no water now, but it would be turned on at midnight. When we left the next morning there was still no water....

I stayed here one night as part of a Nomad trip. Not only is this the worst room I've stayed in on this holiday, but also on all my trips around the world. The room is more like a dungeon. There is no air, the one ceiling lamp makes no difference, the window goes out to a patio and is...

Overpriced for what you get. Room was fine, just a bit dark. Shower head had no water pressure (drip, drip) and ran out of hot water quite quickly. Breakfast was, I'm tempted to say, putrid. Bread was soggy and tasted soapy? We organised to do their advertised Himba village visit, which we did when we called ahead and booked our...

Dear Guest, We regret that your stay with us has been uncomfortable, but as stated on Numerous signs around the guesthouse and in the rooms, we are busy with major renovations and maintenance, as the rainy season is usually our low season and gives us time to take stock of what needs attention. Reviews help in this regard, so thank...

Dear Guest, Our rooms are specifically built like a "bus quarter" in a U -shape, to accommodate our large groups that prefer to stay in the same area as well as the same type room. Due to high Electricity prices and power cuts/dips in this area during summer/rainy season, it is very costly to put in air-conditioners, therefore we provide...

This is a very nice, but simple guesthouse in Kamanjab. I stayed here with my 3 brothers in June 2013. The rooms are clean but plain. Don't expect a lot of frills in the rooms. But, there are 2 nice twin beds, in room shower and bathroom. Fan and electricity. The eating area and restaurant are clean, well decorated and...
