Over Opuwo Country Hotel
Dankzij de prachtige uitzichten zijn de zonsondergangen vanuit de lodge zeer bijzonder. Het Opuwo Country Hotel is centraal gelegen in het gebied dat bekend staat als het leefgebied van de Ovahimba. Het hoofdgebouw van de lodge is met riet overkapt en biedt ruimte aan de souvenirwinkel, het restaurant en de bar. Tijdens de warme uren van de dag is het prettig om verkoeling te zoeken bij het zwembad. U kunt onder begeleiding van een gids de Himba bezoeken. een excursie met veel respect voor de tradities en levenswijze van deze halfnomadische bevolkingsgroep.

Damaraland ligt in het centraal- tot noordwestelijke deel van Namibië. Het gebied is droog, desolaat en dunbevolkt. Kenners betitelen deze regio vaak als het mooiste deel van Namibië. Er leven vele soorten vogels en dieren, die zich geheel hebben aangepast aan de extreme omstandigheden. De woestijnolifant en de zwarte neushoorn zijn hier een goed voorbeeld van. Het landschap is zeer indrukwekkend met haar diepe, vaak droge rivierbeddingen, kopjes, rotspartijen, uitgestrekte vlakten en interessante flora.
"Very nice pool-area"
Opuwo has a really beautiful pool-area for chilling with an awesome view. They have also the opportunity to offer massages. That is really a nice option after a long drive. And it was one of the best massages IÂ´ve ever get. The Buffet in the evening and in the morning was so so. It is a Buffet for the big groups who stops here. I didÂ´t like it. The Quality of the food was bad and the way they presented is was also poor. The rooms are ok. But they should clean it much better. Service was friendly and good!
"Nice located pool, rest just ok"
The lodge was ok for one night, because the lodge is nice located and has a nice pool to overlook the great area. The service was not really motivated and I suppose not instructed how to do their job. Cleaning the room by 8 am while we were at breakfast and didn't leave the room when we got back for packing - was a bit unsusual. Breakfast and dinner were just ok, prepared without any love. Opuwo is probably the worst little town in Namibia and to us the hotel management and service copied the manners from this special town.
"Lodge with a lovely view."
This lodge is like an oasis on a hilltop and offer lovely views. All the rooms have this great views. After travelling through the dry desert landscape you just feel so much more refreshed when look out over this vista.Meals are also very good.
"Dusty Overpriced camp site"
Most expensive camp site we stayed in during our 32 night camping tour of Namibia. Too small for two vehicles with 4 people, dusty and uneven. The ablution and shower facilities were fine. Staff at reception were not particularly interested and we found out about a security problem from the gate guard. The manager on duty was helpful and did provide an explanation about how the security problem had been dealt with. Would not stay there again if there was a choice until some investment is made by the lodge to improve sites.
The lodge has had issues with theft cases in the past, and we were surprised to find that no safe was provided in the room. The internet did not work the whole time we were there and we were informed to just keep trying (to us it was clear that the router was programmed incorrectly, allowing only a limited accesses per week!). When inquiring with both managers, they were very rude, unapologetic and in no way helpful. This rude management behavior could explain why none of the staff at the lodge seemed happy at work, something which transferred to the overall atmosphere. Very rigid management guidelines added to this: the dress code for dinner was smart-casual, which was hard to comply with given that we packed more basic attire; a large deposit was required to use a pool towel; dinner finished at 9pm sharp and the restaurant shut down completely, even when you guests were still sitting and having a drink. Namibians were happy and cheerful everywhere we went except in this lodge, leading us to the conclusion that there are some management issues causing this.
