We had the chance to get a room with view on...the rocks behind the hotel at the longest walking distance you could get to reach the main building an dinner area. No airco in the rooms, it can get very hot at night. Dinner is self service so you'd better be there soon, not the best food in Namibia. Very...

Comfortable room/cottage looking out onto the magnificent plains and mountains in the distance. Its amazing how they built the hotel into/onto the rocks, so it is surrounded by a natural rock garden. Food is good tho all self service, and both dining room and bar have the same breathtaking view.

This is a place you need to see to believe. Lovely hotel built in the rocks and keeping it as natural as possible. If you don't mind the heat, it's a wonderful place to unwind and relax. The people are friendly and the food is delicious and you will never go hungry. We came here as part of a Namibian...

The lodge's main selling point is its location. It's not only near the rock carvings but the whole setting is beautiful with nothing but empty space around for miles. This does feel like it's in the middle of nowhere, in a good way. Even the wifi works at least in the bar/ restaurant area which was a pleasant surprise. The...

Just had a bad experience at Twyfelfontein country Lodge because during an organized tour for elephants the car of the lodge had 2 flat tyres (6pm) We were only 1 hour far away from the lodge but they rescued us after 3 hours. The mobile phone of the driver was broken and there was no coverage of network to call...

Very beautiful drive through spectacular landscapes to reach this remote lodge, which upon arrival turned out to be integrated in the surroundings in an interesting way. Quick and efficient check-in, however quite long walk from reception/restaurant area to room. The rooms were fine, but smaller than anticipated, leaving not much space for two large suitcases. Had some problems with lights...

It's a difficult and dusty drive to get to Twyfelfontein, but the rock engravings are very special. Rooms were a bit small with no fridge or coffee making and less luxurious than expected for the price, but all rooms have a great view onto the plain with wildebeest roaming a couple of hundred metres away. They also came to the...
