La Rochelle could be defined a fraud. The images and descriptions on their web site don’t pitch reality. Game drive in their private reserve is scary because animals are very few and the ones which are in, are terrified by humans because this place is also a hunting spot. No way to have spa services and also in the restaurant there is no choice: no menu, eat it or leave it. We had a very early departure and they supposed to prepare a fast breakfast with coffee, bread and cookies. No way to have nor a slice of bread. The breakfast they gave us to eat on the way were so bad that most of the food has been given away and replaced by new food we bought in a supermarket. This is unacceptable by a place that defined its self a luxury place. Shame on you for what you offer, the service you delivered and the animals you probably kill.

It was our pleasure to have you as our guests, and value your suggestions as we are always keen to continuously improve and develop our offerings. Herewith we would like to humbly advise you as follows: La Rochelle Lodge, known as La Rochelle Guest Farm, was a well-known Hunting Farm in previous years. In 2006 the property was bought by new owners and got a new face and was run as commercial and hunting farm; however in 2017 a 1,000 HA of the 10,000 HA farm was fenced off and now provides an unforgettable Bush experience with countless indigenous antelope species and bird life amidst majestic fig tree and lush gardens and fresh water springs. We hereby want to assure you, that only for counting and breeding purposes, animals are sometimes darted and is conducted in an ethical manner by a professional hunter in order to keep a balance in nature – especially in drought, avoid poaching which we currently have a big problem with but the police do currently assist us in this regard and to serve fresh meat to our guests as well as our own Namibian specialty; dry sausage and biltong. Children can now experience a bush safari from horseback to get up close and personal with nature or do the exciting target shooting while a variety of Spa treatments ensures a renewal of mind, body and spirit. The Spa therapist stays in Tsumeb and pre-booking are thus essential. La Rochelle Lodge boasts a large selection of accommodation and the restaurant prides itself of an intercontinental style of menu and a concise wine selection. Upon arrival of all guests, we do request dietary requirements and at the same time advise every one of the 3 course set menu. Then, after our tantalizing dessert, we politely advise all guests of the time for breakfast, whereupon we did offer your tour guide an early breakfast at 6am which he declined and thus recommended the breakfast pack (a delicious toasted sandwich, boiled egg, fruit and juice). We sincerely apologize that you did not enjoy our scrumptious breakfast; which is the most important meal of the day. And hereby cordially invite you to the hidden treasures like a picnic at the 30 degree natural springs, an afternoon high tea on the terrace, a bush dinner under African sky which will whisky you away and gives the opportunity of traditional and local culture. We look forward to your next visit to discover this luxury lodge, Nadia

Good Morning ZoitzaP Thank you for your lovely review it was a pleasure hosting you at our establishment. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately there must have been a misunderstanding regarding the hunting. La Rochelle Lodge, then known as La Rochelle guest farm, use to be one of the best hunting farms in Namibia. The farm was sold about 8 years ago and the new owners changed the hunting farm to an Fully functioning Luxury Lodge only. Hunting was stopped immediately. Kind regards Nadia Haman

Very stylisch and well equipped bungalows in a wonderful garden with old trees, The main house and restaurant shows an typical African atmosphere, the food is very good and nicely presented. The "lapa" overlooking the waterhole is the best place to enjoy a sundowner.

Stayed here for one night only. I was a little put off by the drive up to the hotel but when I got there I thought it was wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable and stylish, the gardens are lovely and the viewing deck excellent (although the orange light at the waterhole needs adjusting - it was right in your eye line when sitting). We really enjoyed our accommodation here and the meal was superb. Loved it!
