The staff was very friendly and helpful. The game drive and guide was full of laughter, facts and interesting anecdotes. We went for the day and ended up staying overnight.

Our stay at Otavi was very disappointing. It is a grossly overpriced establishment with sub-standard facilities. No game viewing was included as per the website. The house we stayed in did not even have a couch to sit on or a fridge or coffee... NOTHING....More
