From our tented lodge by the river bed, dried up though, we could see wild Oryxes strolling right in front of our tent.
There was no TV or wifi in the tent, but we had everything we needed for our 2 night stay, tea and coffee, a safe, a spacious bathroom with hot water shower. We were surprised to have turn down service when we returned to our room after dinner. There was a swimming pool, quite small, but we didn't get to use it.
Wifi connection in the reception was not steady. Connection was very slow when there were too many people trying to get online but it seemed to be a common problem in many of the hotels in Namibia.
Locationwise, its very close to the entrance of the national park.
Most impressive was the quality of the food whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner. They were all served in buffet style with lots of choices of salad, fruits and cheese. For two nights in a row, grilled zebra, oryx, springbok, kudu meat were available.
