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.

• Bezoek aan de Himba's
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.
"Nice, expensive, don't come if you can only afford the standard room"
A pretty hotel with an amazing view at the pool. Unfortunately this place is a bit expensive for what they offer. The standard rooms are tucked away from the luxury rooms and are dark, depressing, forgotten afterthoughts. We upgraded to a luxury room, which are much much nicer inside, but the views of the surrounding hills/area for all of the rooms are obstructed by small trees. A little maintenance to the standard rooms, drop the prices a bit, clear the few small trees to allow guests to have a better view from their rooms and this place would be great. The staff is wonderful, the dinners are a bit on the heavy side(but tasty) and the views from the bar/dinner/pool area are amazing. Options are a limited in Opuwo and this place is definitely on the higher end for your wallet.
"The swimming pool, and the view, were its best assets."
While the location itself, with the infinity pool overlooking the valley, was beautiful, the accomodation felt 'tired' and the staff rather uninvolved. Also, the food unfortunately was of mediocre quality. The tour to the Himba village (our main reason for staying here) was relaxed but very superficial. Much more could have been made of it. One did not really get a good impression of their lifestyle, but it felt more like the obligatory prelude to the sale of local crafts, where about 30 sellers (not counting children and babies) were all circled up trying to sell overpriced trinkets to just 5 visitors. A bit too much and out of balance in terms of meaningful content.
"Outstanding views of the surroundings"
We had had a long day driving enjoying the Namibian nature . We arrived in Opuwa as usually we used the GPS but so much development has happened in this town that the GPS was lost and it took us a while to find it. Arriving the impressive lobby with its tall roof and straw roofs, with real size wooden himba's receiving us at the entrance. So we arrived after dark and only the next day did we see the beautiful outlay of the hotel. The rooms were beautifully designed in what else wound call African colorful and very tasteful. Malaria nets.the beds were twin beds not double but that we saw a lot in Namibia. Wonderful shower with jot water. Dinning room with buffet was rich with a lot to offer. In the morning we sat on the terrace with the most wonderful view to the valley below. The only thing I have to object to, was that I send 4 postcards to my siblings as I always do, they have not arrived yet one month later, but there is a tradition in Namibia of postmen walking/running on foot. So perhaps one of these days they will arrive....but does not change how we felt about the hotel which was a good feeling.
We would like to thank you for our beautiful stay at your Lodge and Campside. We really enjoyed the rooms and specially the good food. The Service was friendly and the pool was very refreshing. We hope to return soon.
"Nice view and stay in Opuwe"
The lodge is situated up hill in Opuwe with nice views overlooking the plains. Rooms are spacious with a nice terrace. Reception is good. In the rooms there is no minibar, no safe, no hair dryer and no paper tissues. There is a socket in the bathroom that fits European as well as American plugs. Water supply did not give any trouble. At the time of our stay WiFi was not available. The rooms are clean but need some update. There is a well-kept infinity pool and a bar with nice views. For pool towels you need to register at the reception (ransom of 100 N$). Lunch, dinner and breakfast were all served in buffet style and are good. They are served on the open terrace. Major credit cards are accepted but some of our group members were not able to pay by card due to technical problems and had to pay in cash.
