A wonderful stay, great atmosphere. We loved it. The set up is very nice and we were lucky to stay there just after a total refurbishment/renovation. Good food (dinner and breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff.

We first stayed at the Anib in 2009 and found it a pleasant lodge in the budget price range. Now under new ownership, it closed for about 3 months for extensive renovations. We arrived the week that they reopened and I could not believe it was the same place. The only thing I recognized was the swimming pool and, of...

We had booked the Kalahari Anib Lodge as one of several excellent Gondwana properties for our recent tour of Namibia, and at the time of booking were a little anxious that the proposed renovations would not be complete by the time we arrived, but we are very glad we got the chance to stay. We did not see the lodge...

That lodge re-opened after the renovation in the first week in April, and we were one of the first guests there. Beautiful rooms, bar and dinner-place! Good food! Very good game-drive with lots of animals. Highlight: Giraffes in the sun-set! Super place for the sun-downer in the red Kalahari-desert!

Lovely as always. It was our 3rd visit and it feels like a home away from home. Divvie and his team really went to any length to satisfy our every need. I will definitely recommend any person to stay there. Best of luck with all the renovations - cannot wait to see it.

We liked our stay very much. Our room was very nice. The 4-course-menue was excellent. I wondered how they managed to have croissants fresh out of a french bakery for breakfast. The staff, especially Aline, was very friendly and helpful.
