We had a warm welcome and all the staff was very nice and helpful. Our guide gave his best but the there were only games and some very nice birds to see. Anyway it was very interesting and we enjoyed our stay very much.
We liked our stay here because of the solitude. But this comes at a price: 1: literally: the lodge is too expensive for the quality it offers and 2: it is more than an hour away from the game drive road and there are almost no animals between that road and (around) the lodge. With one notable exception though: we saw a leopard!
An absolutely memorable stay at !Xaus. Our hosts, Anthony and Suzy when out of their way to make this one of te best trips we have ever had. The staff were all a pleasure to deal with, and Hendrik, our guide, has incredible knowledge of the Kgalagadi and what it offers. Food was great, it is a venue that is extremely highly recommendable.
!Xaus lodge was a dramatic surprise when we reached it after a gentle but exhilarating drive through the dunes. After a warm welcome from the staff we were able to relax on our balcony and enjoy the view. The food was fantastic and the portions generous. I highly recommend this if you want to visit one of the earth's special places and experience nature at its best. This is not a place for those who have to be connected to the internet instead of the earth.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. Friendly staff, clean rooms, good food and nature at it's best. The perfect place to unwind and just be. Our guide, Castro, was awesome! Will defenitely visit again!
A lovely stay but the lodge looks a bit tired. It needs a bit of work paint wise, etc. Food was good, staff were lovely. Very hot in afternoon due to fans not working as generator was off. If I visit again I will come in winter or when it is cooler.
My husband and I really enjoyed spending two nights at the !Xaus lodge. The staff makes you feel relaxed and taken care off. We very much appreciate the fact that most of them were dependents of the people who originally lived in the area. The location of the lodge is also special - it makes you feel close to the nature and allows you to appreciate it more.
The Staff welcomed us with warm hearts and big smiles. They made our stay and my birthday celebration a obs that will never be forget! Always friendly and our guide went out of his way to make this a memroble visit. Well done !Xaus.
The remoteness and the expanse of pan and dunes creates a sense of having the Kalahari to yourself. Rooms are stylish and reflects the colour of the pan making it part of the veld. Staff are great and Corne the guide impressed with his intimate knowledge of his world.
We booked a night at !Xaus Lodge as we had a gap in our bookings in the Kgalagadi. We did not expect the experience to be as holistic and enjoyable. The service was brilliant from the pick-up by Castro, right to our departure. We loved the guided walk and the night drive, both of which added a different dimension to our time in the Kgalagadi. The history of the lodge is fascinating and was sensitively told. The room was comfortable and had a magnificent view. The food was good and the facilities were great given the remoteness of the location.
