This stunning beauty, the view from the spectacular, the service and the food is very good. Excellent location near the town Opuwo those who want to see the tribes and their host.

If the management would let show a little bit more interest in their business, the staff would also work harder! It was to much for the management to come and meet their guests! They forget we are the ones where they live from. They were even rude against their guests! Food could be better especially the breakfast, and when you had done with eaten at evening they closed the doors and they put out the lights while we were sit there with a wine and talking with some friends at 10.10pm.

Establishment's response

Dear Mr Allain from Belgium

I can assure you that we are more busy in and around the hotel than you will ever know – are staff is hardworking and loyal, but it is season time and we do get guests that do not understand the industry and the money differences like yourself – In Namibia the Namibian Dollar and the Rand are one on one and we cannot give you discount because according to you there is a difference and when the 3rd person explaining to you that we cannot change the money other than one on one – you started complaining about the closing time of the Bar, etc. Would you have different comments if we gave you discount that was not allowed? . As you will remember – we asked firstly whether you and your partners would like another drink – you declined after which we closed the bar – but we will keep your comments about that as something to learn from. Funny enough – in our guest comments book on the same days that you were here, people commented about the good food???? I wish you happy – other memories about your stay at Opuwo Country Lodge.

Kind regards

I have been to this lodge many times during 2007-08. It is simply the best place to stay in Opuwo. Both food and accommodation are so superior to anything around that there is no comparison.
