Refreshing utopia on the outskirts of the Namib desert. With hot summer temperatures, its the ideal place to go cool down, with a swimming pool fed with water from natural springs. Beautiful scenery of the mountain overlooking the lodging. Very peaceful getaway with no network reception so no disturbance. A very very friendly welcoming committee. Animals coming to the dam at the mountain foot. Definitely worth a visit.

Thank you very much for your kind review!

You are right, it is not that easy to provide an oasis in the midst of our stunning, yet dry surroundings.

We are glad you enjoyed it!

On our drive from Karibib to Etusis we did not know what to expect, but did we get the surprise of our life. Stunningly beautiful lodge in the middle of the desert with fantastic chalets and everything you can think of. Great and well maintained swimming pool, fantastic home cooked meals served on the great stoep. Johan and Monica are the most amazing hosts and will go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Johan is very knowledgeable about the animal and birdlife and could direct us the the best places to look for the specials. The best was the great hiking trails around the marble koppie and to the waterfall. We were very disappointed that we could spent only two days and will go back anytime to spent more time at this wonderful place.

We spent 3 nights at Etusis in a Bungalow.
The lodge is easily reachable from Karibib and well signed so you find your way.
Monica and Johann are running the lodge very professional. The team is perfectly organised in all matters.
The breakfast and dinner and also the high tea are fabulous. Silvanus and the cooking team are more than talented and food is delicious and creative in every way. Milk products are locally produced and more than delicious.
The rooms are very nice and private, spotless clean and in a very good condition. Housekeeping is doing a great job too!
There is nothing that is old or not well maintained.
The pool area is relaxing and very beautiful to hang around. Pool towels are provided in the rooms.
One evening we did a sundowner drive with Johann and we had the chance to see a lot of the area and the huge property. Johann has so much knowledge and such a passion about nature and the farm. It is simply great to chat with him and I learnt a lot on the drive.
The other morning we made a horse trip (as non riders) to the waterfall. This was highly professional and we never felt uncomfortable or unsafe. The horses, Titus und the Trainee helped to make the ride unforgettable and magically.
You can hike on very well maintained hiking trails around the lodge. Magnificent!
You feel welcome everywhere at the farm and if you love animals you will highly enjoy the rock dassies, kudus, zebras, mongooses,... passing the lodge and water hole.
The farm animals (horses, cattle, sheep) are in a perfect shape. Kiera which is one of the loveliest dogs I ever met and the cats help to feel never lonely when you miss your furfriends at home.
We can highly recommend this very well run lodge.
Thanks so much for the very nice stay. We will be back some day.
