Best NWR resort, good staff, good food, the sunrise safari has been exciting.
Although the setting is spectacular this place is a huge disappointment. Faulty sewer system and decaying facilities create a bad vibe. There is a clear lack of management and staff (including the receptionist) can be found occupying guest areas, drinking and chatting loudly. For the high end prices they charge one expects attentive, restrained service but this place is a shambles. Nevertheless it is a great experience visually although we can't understand why a viewing deck has not been provided overlooking the waterhole on the plains below. Definitely needs some tlc.
Excellent lodge with great staff, food and wines, plus unexpected pool. Amazing views of the plain, but no viewable waterhole for night.
Very nice hotel but hilly with long walks from the houses to the restaurant. I think you should tell the guests with walking difficulties that the little buggy that is supposed to take you is only possible to use when you go back to your room, from the restaurant/bar unless it comes when you are walking.
Breathtaking view, original camp, nice pool, excellent food, friendly staff A MUST !
Wonderful stop Wished we had two nights here
nice place - extraordinary kitchen ! great view out of the pool for sunset
All the Ethosha camps were very modern and had some nice touches. Food was medium quality everywhere.
Stayed here as it's the only lodge in the west. Needs some serious reconsideration in all aspects. Service slow-full dining room and only 1 staff to serve everyone. Food good when it arrived. Uneven path makes walking difficult even for the fit in daytime. Rooms either side of a hill but no view of one of the most productive waterholes we saw. We scrambled onto the rocks at the end of the path to get a glimpse of the waterhole early morning. We saw a pride of 13 lions but most guests missed them. To get to the waterhole meant calling for the one and only buggy (driver was great fun), getting a ride to the car park, driving around the hill to the waterhole, then getting back in time for breakfast. They MUST build a waterhole viewing platform to make this camp worth the money charged. Pool freezing.
This was our favourite! What a stunning place! The location is amazing with 360 degree views. The chalets/tents are beautiful and I wish we had had more time to sit on our little balcony watching elephants and giraffe make their way to the waterhole. The birdlife and opportunities for birdwatching are spectacular here! The restaurants and bars here are in intimate tents which feels much better than the large halls for dining at most NWR places. Again, we felt that the chefs should maybe be trained more since the meat is typically very overcooked - we had horribly dry chicken and very tough oryx - nothing wrong with the produce just not cooked in an appropriate way. The pool area looked so inviting. We fell in love with this beautiful place and would definitely want to stay here next time, for longer.
unfriendly staff and poor food, very nice lodge but rooms not clean.
Lovely camp. Poor service.
Another wonderful camp and setting. Would like to have spent another night here Max: I agree with Steve, would have liked to have gone on a night drive from here.
It's a pity to see a such beautiful camp with no managing, not enought staff, a lot of things brooken, the room not cleaned (only the bed was dressed) and the reservation for a game drive, cancelled 5 minutes before without any excuse or explain.
Very nice place, but the Food could be better.
Lovely place to stay!! Service a bit slow and they seemed to be understaffed. Beautiful and very very nice. Could have stayed longer!! Breakfast ok but not fabulous. Dinner could improve. Most of the food was cold.
AMAZING. Location superb. swimming pool with a view was great. dinner and breakfast are okay. in the middle of Ethosa close to waterholes and a lot of animals.
A ghost of a camp, amazing structure, but lots of things broken (like the canvas zippers to shut the windows of the chalets), they've switched the phones off, so you can't call for the cart to pick you up to bring you to the reception. The camp is unfenced and I guess some people would feel nervous about walking the trails in the evening with small children, but I think it's actually totally ok and safe because it's on a koppie and I really doubt that there's anything threatening there as long as little kiddies aren't running around on their own which they very much shouldn't be anyway. Staff without uniforms. Served my children meat that was distinctly rotten for lunch. Poor staff training. However, there's no doubt that all the staff were really nice, there was no lack of effort, it's just that they did not have the training and resources necessary. The location of the camp was amazing. We were totally prepared for the negatives as everyone says the same thing on TripAdvisor, and the location of the camp is so stunning that it just makes it worth it, I was also thrilled to see that part of Etosha for the first time. But I'd say that it's good for people to be prepared about the nature of this camp so that they don't feel disappointed but get the best out of it.
of course the best camp we stayed in because it is so beautifully designed, tasty food, semi efficient staff but we would still go back any time
Lovely setting, pity there is no view of the waterhole from the camp - other than from chalet 13 (I think!). Food was ok, pool area very pretty and well maintained, cabin quite small with 4 of us (2 children) but a nice break from camping for one night
This is the best camp in Etosha
What an amazing location! Fantastic. Looking down from our verandah as the zebras and elephants wandered over the plain was incredible. Sunrise from the bed!!
An amazing place not to miss! It was long drive and we enjoyed the waterholes along the way, though there were fewer animals. We were given the most outstanding tent cottage, nearest to the dining tents, with it's own deck and private dipping pool. And the view from every tent cabin was incredible. The so-called tent was basically a luxury hotel room. Only suggestion is that it need a ceiling fan--we were very hot. Again we were so happy to have 2 nights there. The food was quite delicious and healthy. (How do they get fresh vegetables in such a remote place?). Again the staff was remarkable. So friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed a night drive though we didn't see many animals.
What a terrific location. Staff were super helpful and attentive. Meals were excellent. Can't fault it.
Nice and.. wild. Best place we stayed into the Etosha Park.
The tents were hot and somewhat cramped, but view was superb
We didn't like the Dolomite Camp - the deluxe bungalow is beautiful, but too small for a family - they put 2 mattresses on the floor and it was impossible to move to the bathroom or outside - the walls of the bungalow had lots of holes and during the windy night we had to sleep all together in the double bed, because the children had only 2 blankets on their matresses - at the bar we asked for a drink and got 5-6 ants in the drink - the staff didn't smile
Excellent recommendation, many negative comments about this location could not be confirmed (exception reception is a bit chaotic if many people (>6) arrive at the same time). Fantastic view of game in a really ideal setting. The road to dolomite however is over a big distance by far the worst that we have experienced in Namibia on public roads (end of June).
Absolutely great - one of the best NWR lodges.
Wonderful setting. Buggy was broken down. Makes it hard for guests to bring luggage from cars. Have to have a back up vs just telling guests to only bring few items.
We did not at all enjoy the stay in this lodge (and we are not the only ones if we believe the comments of the other customers the night we were there). The maintenance is not good at all. It was windy and all the zips of the "tented windows" were broken so that it was noisy and windy (cold) the whole night. The light in the toilet was "on" all the time because the system to switch off was broken. We had to wait long for the buggy for the luggage. On arrival we have been told that we were not allowed to walk by ourselves at night (to go to dinner and come back to our room) but the "guard" never came .... so we walked back alone and were a little bit scared as the receptionist told us it was dangerous. We asked for a second blanket which we never received. We will never recommend this place.
Dolomite (like Onkoshi) is a camp I've been to a couple of times - but not again. Don't like the dining rooms, or the steep walks to and from anything. I also prefer to park my car close to my room. Staff were friendly
An amazing place, fabulous views over the plains and water hole - quite basic food and service - rooms were fantastic but very far away from the central dining, reception and bar facility. This place is not for elderly people unless they are conveyed wherever they go - it is exceptionally steep and a long way to walk unaided. The telephones in the rooms were not working so it was impossible to call reception to ask for the "taxi" service to collect us from our rooms to take us to dinner. We just had to hope for the best that eventually a vehicle would come past which, after some waiting, did happen.
Dolomite Camp is amazing. This was my favorite part of the trip and I would like to spend a few nights here next time I come. The setting is breath-taking and the cabanas are very nice and very cozy, with amazing views. The access to wild animals and good watering holes, without a lot of other tourists competing for space is unparalleled in Etosha. And the facilites here - especially the infinity pool, the bar and restaurants were all top notch. I loved that Dolomite Camp is not fenced in and that staff walk you back to your cabana at night. I had read some negative reviews about the service here, but I experienced no problems. The service was not the best I've seen - not super attentive - but as I am largely self-sufficient, I experienced no problems and found the staff to at least be friendly.
What a fabulous place! Loved everything about it. One of my favorite places and would have loved to have spent another night here.
We were worried about this camp before we left from Europe as the reviews were quite bad, but Lilly advised us correctly as the location of the camp and the wildlife we saw made up for the terrible food. The service and cleanliness of the rooms was not up to the same level as other camps, but the staff were very nice. I am vegetarian (I eat fish) and one dinner I was served had to be the worst food I have ever been presented. Apart from this we are very happy we stayed there.
Special site and location. Service could be improved. Food average. The need for safe transport back an forth between reception/restairant and the individual cottages is cumbersome.
Dolomite is in a fantastic location and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The nearby waterhole produced an enormous collection of animals including lions, elaphants, giraffes, all kinds of deer plus foxes with their cubs. It should be mentioned that, although the Camp has only been open for four years, it is not being properly maintained and this appears to be due to the menagement or, rather, the lack of it. One worrying aspect is that the camp is open to any animals - lions have been seen in the car park - yet the escorting of guests, particularly at night time, is virtually non-existent. It would be no surprise to hear that one day a guest has been killed by a lion. Additionally, the long paths leading to accommodations have lamps but none were working where my daughter was staying so it was pitch black. Despite raising these issues, our stay at Dolomite was outstanding but maybe Cardboard Box needs to ask some questions. Many guests appeared unhappy over the service provided.
Now THIS is the way it should be. Beautiful location, facilities and professional & friendly staff that seems genuinely interested in their guest. NWR could use this as a model for all of their facilities as it easily competes with private lodges.
Excellent cabins and facilities, we were lucky to be in a cabin partially overlooking the waterhole. Shame they do not do night drives.
Dolomite was billed as an upmarket lodge,Ii think it was probably the worst of the three we stayed at. The only exclusive thing about it was the distance one has to travel to it. It had also rained in the area just before we had arrived, so the animals had moved away from the waterholes, but that was taken into account in this comment.
Good experience. The camp is very well situated and we enjoyed from the chalet a very good sight on the animals in the country round
Great value for money.
Lovely camp and the only one inside Western Etosha. If you have not been before then you will love it. We have been before and thought it was starting to look a little bit tired. Food was very good this year.
Beautiful setting but in all honesty would only recommend to those wanting a stop over before heading west or north. There was only one road open for viewing at waterholes and most of them were dried up with no indication at road junction so drove needlessly to them. Service was good but staff were less frinedly than in other places
our second at the dolomite there and we still think that although the concept is excellent, the execution is very poor. Service is bad -the whole team seem just not to care about you- , food is bad, the -very nice - chalets are not properly maintained and there is only one cart being used for the full camp. But the game sighting is very good in the area, so it is worth the stop.Just.
Excellent location with good staff, food and service with very comfortable room.
Love the remote location. Nice cabins, good restaurant. They could use a viewing platform for the waterhole.
A great position, very comfortable chalets, kind staff, many animals all around. A ring on the parking could help to reduce the waiting time for a car to reach the lodge.
Good location. The room was very nice and intimate. Fantastic view from our room, good choice. Food ok
A really special resort that is very different to the other Etosha camps. I wish I had booked more than one night.
Lots of animals. Must do. Camp ok.
Spectacular location, room was great with stunning views. However no flood lit waterhole like others which limited game viewing. Food OK, but not fantastic. We do not rate this as highly as other Etosha resorts.
gorgeous location. We loved this side of the park. Wish we'd skipped okaukejo and stayed here instead.
Not the place to stay if you want to get out early and stay out late. The system of getting you to and from the car park is a bit flawed. Spectacular views from the rooms though.
A beautiful camp - with stunning views from our chalet (no 13). It was good to experience the "other" side of Etosha. The one downside was the distance (and amount of uphill climbs) to keep from both the car park and chalet to reception (interesting when carrying about 10 kilos of photograph kit)
Aaah the Jewel of Etosha NWR camps. Beautiful place. Service from all the staff was awesome.
Lovely setting and layout (though that results in long walks). Quite an upmarket feel to the resort for a NWR. Food was cold. The information I received beforehand didn't mention that you can leave your luggage in the car park and get a lift back down in the buggy - it's a long walk up if carrying suitcases.
A gem in etosha and not to be missed. A special mention to the staff there.
Great location and outlook, I wouldn't bother with a daytime game drive again.
DREADFUL PLACE - would never want to stay there again. Although the views are spectacular and the rooms and balconies all overlook the massive plains of Etosha, this does not compensate for the shoddy, unhelpful, disinterested service that was provided. I could actually write pages about this, but suffice to say that Dolomite is NOT suitable for elderly or unfit guests. Supposedly the "golf cart" is to take guests up and down either to meals or down to their own vehicles (which have to be parked at the bottom of this massive hill). In reality, they only seem to have the one cart and a large part of the day is wasted waiting for the "cart" to arrive.
Beautiful and secluded camp. Very unique experience!
This was our only disappointing accommodation in Namibia. The design of the tents is dreadful as those facing west get no shade so you can't cool them or take advantage of the great view. The design of the camp as a whole is also poor, confusing and apparently random. It wasn't particularly clean and the mosquito nets had huge holes in. The golf buggy transport is inefficient and noisy, spoiling the atmosphere most of the time. We were glad we saw the west of the park, but would have been better staying outside it and travelling in.
Not warm people. Gvernement company
Dolomite Camp was beautiful! We had a gorgeous tent/cabin overlooking the plain, and could sit outside with our binoculars and watch giraffes and zebras and oryx below. There was also a friendly dassie that would hang out with us. The food was wonderful -- they had a nice Christmas buffet. The `infinity` pool was nice also. The one thought we had though, is they have a waterhole right there -- it seems like they could easily put in a viewing area so that people can watch the animals like at Okaukeujo (at least during the day!).
Very nice location - food could be better
The best accomodation in Namibia. Absolutely stunning. We`d like to come back and then we would book more than one night. Animal watching from the balcony...
A beautiful camp. Really great atmosphere.
Oustanding location and good accomodation. Staff EXTREMELY poorly trained. We waited for ever in the car park to be picked up. Really poorly signposted as to what to do once we arrived. ie: there was nothing to say what came next. Manager - Maria- was disinterested in apologising. Staff were disinterested and sullen and non engaging. Food was mediocre.Location was good. We were disappointed to discover on arrival no game drives until further notice as their guide had left. Would have been nice to know this beforehand to enable us to contemplate changing accomodation.
A great place to enjoy for several days. Self game drive is probably better than the one provided by the lodge though...
A wonderful camp, exquisite, offers outstanding views, good food. Can definitely be recommended!
Once we entered Etosha National Park the frequency and variety of animals increased. Dolomite is relatively new and the Lodges were well appointed and comfortable. The buggy`s drove up and down the hill from dawn until dusk to cart people as the path from reception/ restaurant to the chalets was stones set in concrete so not the easiest walking surface, definitely not for people with mobility issues, but we enjoyed the exercise. We were advised not to walk from the reception area down the hill to the car park after dark. The waterhole below the camp was fantastic and we had elephants walking around our vehicle, also present were Ostrich, zebra, giraffe, bison and local game. This was an excellent camp, recommending more than 1 night.
Very nice. Encountered more elephants crossing the roads around here than we did at the waterholes.
for sure the best. I just regret not to stay 2 nights.
Great location, but falling apart already. Service average.
My best nwr camp. Wonderful location. Clean and nice chalet.Restaurant ok.
Good position, good value, but a bit disorganised and long walks to chalets may be a problem for some.
Great location but service was average.
Excellent lodge with fantastic views
Very nice lodge - food was not top but ok
excellent location, rooms not very clean ,many things to fix in the room;average service.for safari:you have very few roads to drive.
no matter what anyone says, tell them to stay 2 nights or more, particularly if they get a room with a plunge pool I so wish I had followed Lilly`s initial advice regarding this! Yes, it was up a lot of hill, but the one golf-cart they had available (two were out of action) was pretty good for the number of people who were there when we were. It would be a major issue if no golf-carts were going though, that`s for sure. Very beautiful rooms, great wildlife, and excellent staff. Not great breakfast but excellent dinner. The room with the plunge pool was absolutely excellent and made my stay
Great location. Needs a communication point at car park at base of mountain to be able to contact reception for pick up. Units are in high need of maintenance. Leaking showers, deck bi fold doors broken and off tracks, zippers broken of most of the canvas windows. Location is great and resort well designed. Just very very tired.
Nice place, a very good lodge. One of my favorites!
Excellent but think they could improve their way of collecting clients from the car park area, it is slightly hit and miss but worked OK for us. A telephone from the car pak to reception would be an idea.
Magnificent place, a true gem. If we had known this lodge would be this great, we would have booked for at least a couple of nights. Very friendly staff, beautiful view on either side of the hills and extremely comfortable beds. Rating: 10/10.
NWR doing their best to match the commercial lodges. We had the best room in the place. Great location, lovely views. Appreciated being at the western end of the park as it is so much emptier than the middle-east end. Maintenance will be an issue - the lights on the path to our room were not working properly - bit dangerous in the dark. Fortunately we had our own torches. Did report this.
Great place for our first night in the etosha. Most unsuitable for those less able but loved the setting. Food was a bit far out but most enjoyable just the same.
An excellent NWR camp perched on a ridge overlooking the plains watching game coming and going to the waterhole. The rooms are gorgeous and we loved sitting watching the sunset from our veranda (although the room did get unbearably hot during the day). Obviously they are working on their standards of service which are very good, and the food is much better than the standard NWR fare. I wouldn`t recommend this place for people with mobility difficulties as it`s up a very steep hill, although there is a golf buggy that will ferry you to and from your room.
Well worth visiting. Just beware of the occasional `kamikaze golf buggy driver` after dinner! A shame most people seem to stay only 1 night but one consequence of the transient visitors was the pleasure of being able to visit water holes for 3 hour before meeting another car as most others were either using the arrival or exit roads.
A really impressive site with wonderful facilities. Each hut has privacy and great views over the landscape. There was plenty of small wildlife on the rocks surrounding the hut.
exclusive place in the middle of nowhere; everything was ok; a bit awkward was that you have to use those buggies to get to your chalet after sunset; creditcard machine was broken so we had to pay cash; cash has been short because sometimes it was not easy to get enough money from the rare cash points in that region
Accommodation very good, staff friendly. Food good. Maintenance not good. A pity to see such a lovely new camp deteriorate so quickly as a result of poor maintenance. Smashed window in sliding door is a very bad advert.
Wonderful camp, wonderful view on the waterhole, nice people, good food
Absolutly fantastic !!
Brilliant location, sunrise from our lodge was fantastic. Manager needs to communicate animal sightings to guests more efficiently. Staff were friendly, my wife taught a few of them some ZUMBA moves !
Beautiful location with excellent facilities except that our phone did not function. Excellent views of the surroundings from the lodges. The staff was among the best we met in Namibia - very professional and informative.
Nice bungalow, wonderful eastern view, easy walk to lodge, pool was a nice touch - more use in hot time of year, enjoyed viewing elephant, springbok, giraffe, birds, a honey badger from our deck, good service, fair pricing
Everything perfect, beautiful tent with nice view, beautiful pool, very stylisch decoration
A lovely lodge. We managed to get chalet 14 (with the help of Hilary of Kunene River Lodge). It gave a good view of the waterhole that attracted many animals including a black rhino and a troop of baboons. Food, room, facilities and service were good and staff helpful.
Perfect view. The dinner was not so good.
We did not regret to have a long way to get there because the view, the lodge, the staff are outstanding
Beautiful place and warm service
Spectacular views! We loved everything about this lodge.
Nice comfortable lodges with rather small sleeping part. Atmosphere not fantastic - 2 different dining parts. Service not at general level of other lodges ! We should not recommend.
Good accommodation but the service at breakfast and dinner was very slow and unprofessional. The credit card machine was not working so this caused a problem when we wanted to check out. We were asked to pay cash but as we had not planned for this the only alternative was to pay at the next camp. Luckily we were booked in and were not leaving Etosha. The service staff definitely need training.
Dolomite provided us with wonderful game viewing experiences in Western Etosha. Other than the people at Dolomite there were no other visitors to this part of the Park, which meant by and large we had the waterholes to ourselves- a very different experience than at many Reserves throughout Africa. Our safari vehicle was `charged` by an elephant `matriarch` on our first drive, and she certainly let us know what she felt about us encroaching on her family. Afterwards we spent the evening with more than 60 elephants at the nearby waterhole- family groups just kept arriving, and our vehicle (driver + 3) were alone to see it. Next morning we visited with a lion pride at another waterhole, and returned ourselves in the evening to find them still there. In years with normal rainfall I understand that the animals are more dispersed, with so little rain this year the game was concentrated at the waterholes. We also enjoyed Dolomite itself, although as others have pointed out there are opportunities for improvement. The accommodation was very good, and the swimming pool the best we experienced on our Namibian trip. Food was also fine. I do feel management is at times a little lacking, most noticeable at meal times when the staff are stretched, the opportunity is for others to step in and help- but we didn`t see this happening. Also the price for having the accommodation stretched along an escarpment is the need for a buggy to shuttle guests to and fro, and although the drivers are very willing and friendly, this system inevitably leads to some frustration. Overall however I consider these to be minor issues, particularly given the quality of the game viewing experience. Dolomite offers good value.
We loved this accommodation, the people/staff and the food very much.
Loved it! By far our favorite stay. perhaps make it a little more clear that meals are included with booking
Loved Dolomite! Such a stunning place. The staff were wonderful the food was great. We wish we had more time here.
Very nice camp and would certainly go back
Cumbersome system to get oneself and one´s luggage to the tents and from the parking. Good dinner.
What a luxury!
Beautiful setting, one of my favourites but it said to be said, the service is not up to scratch. Enjoyed our room though and having a swim in the pool.
This was one of the (many) unforgettable moments in Namibia! Great location, with a nice view a the waterhole. Also the swimming pool has an amazing view. Dinner and breakfast were also very good. Only disadvantage is the shuttle service driving in early morning and late evening (makes quite some noise).
Very nice setting,difficult to access, good service. A fuel station would help.
There are no words to describe the wonderful expedience we had in all respects. It is a very exquisit place. Worth to stay at. And the advise of the Camp Deputy Manager was instrumental for the successful visits of the best Waterholes on the way to Okakuejo this day.
Excellent lodging, but for me the wildlife experience near Dolomite does not justify such an expensive accommodation.
Beautiful chalet, the architecture of the whole site is very nice. BUT: service is disorganised. We had asked for luggage pick up at 6 am before breakfast (we had one of the most remote chalets) and it was confirmed. Then in the morning they did not come in time, said they can only do it later. I insisted and finally they came. Breakfast should have been as of 6:30 but hardly anything was set up. Butter came 20 minutes later, toast 30 minutes. We had to ask three times for hot water for tea - came with 30 minutes delay. The eggs which we ordered at 6:30 were still not ready at 7:00. Same for the other guests who were there. On other guest got completely angry and set up. We were short on time that morning as we had a long drive. I was heavily disappointed about this very bad breakfast planning. The manager there has to to a much better job to ensure flawless breakfast preparation. The dinner was ok but a little bit below expectations
Fantastic camp. New, clean, well designed with very friendly and helpful staff. hope they can keep this up!
Nice exquisite camp in fantastic surrounding
Excellent new camp. Very smart, great staff and excellent food. Don`t go to the waterholes between the camp and the Galton gate they are closed and you will waste a day. Elsewhere the animals are more jumpy than in the east but there are plenty of them and you have them more or less to yourself
Beautiful camp, fantastic view but very noisy golfcars for transportation.
A gorgeous place. We would love to return
Camp is really beautiful, but not securised (not fenced). Morning drive far too expensive for what it is and they were late.
Just fantastic location. The deluxe Chalets are perfect, Dinner no complaints but the breakfast was no value for the money we paid for the deluxe and the service during braekfast was very slow. It took 40 Minutes untill the eggs where served. This it too long if you want to leave early. Rest of the service was ok and the staff was very friendly. The most disturbing thing are the little Golf-cabs the use for the guest transportation. These vehicles are terrible noisy and this in this peaceful area.
Hope it stays at a reasonable price. Incredible views!
Wonderful camp for a good price
You are the best.
Very bad service. To avoid this place. bad coffee in the afternoon. No second bed for the kids until 11pm and after a few discussing, greek salad without fetta, no kids food and to spicy. in the morning no more coffee, had to wait for 30 min. before getting coffee and to make the eggs. When there is no white around, it just doesn't function. Golf cars are very noisy and the staff uses them for the cleaning ladies. Absolutely no European standard. To expensive
should at least have Fans in rooms during Hot season ; great food
Amazing, felt like a honeymoon, beautifull!!!!
Very nice location, new camp, stunning view, good services, good atmosphere. Definitely to recommend.
Excellent and friendly service, staff and accomodation! A great experience!
A great break after a week of camping. We enjoyed out stay there, that bit of creature comfort (showers, beds, nice meals, etc. were great!)
Super, The manager an his staff welcomed us very well. They always tried to give us satisfactions faced to our deception of not seing many animals during 2 game drives with their guide. They proposed to us, for the second night, one of the best chalet in front of the water hole and it was great.
Dolomite was only opened officially in September of this year, but the resort is phenomenal. Nothing is too much trouble. Our `Superior` chalet had a plunge pool looking out over the veldt. What a fantastic place for a Honeymoon! Problems ? Unfortunatley there is no game in Western Etosha, a massive disappointment after the other three resorts, especially when you are there to film wild-life. Also there is no fuel available, and it is 100 km to the nearest filling-station, so searching for the game is difficult. The manager arranged a Jerry-can to be brought in for us on their supply truck. As I said, nothing is too much trouble. Unless you really are on Honeymoon, probably two days would be the most you would want here because of the lack of anything to see.
Very special. Unique being unfenced. An excellent team of staff members offering friendly & personal service. Stunning location.
Simply bliss. completely differnet location which felt truly wild. excellent and happy young team with good leadership. Staff more then happy to talk with clients and humour was shared.
Very nice. I hope that they will manage to keep it nice for a while. Food was ~ok.
Absolutely beautiful new camp. The welcome from the reception staff was wonderful. We did find them to be a bit young, but very enthusiastic! Great viewpoints from camp. Very professional staff and great service at the restaurant. The food was above average, although not as good as at Sossus Dune Lodge. Negative points: quite a climb between our room and the restaurant. This is ok when it's not too hot, but this is quite strenuous when the temperature is over 40. No fridge or mini bar in the room. We found this should definitely be added because we often came back from a drive, had to climb over the hilltop to our room, arriving completely dehydrated and only warm water to drink from our supply. Water had to be paid for and even coffee after the dinner had to be paid also!! We didn't understand why this lodge is sold on a BB basis, although lunch and dinner have to taken at the lodge because there is nothing else for miles around.
The only thing I could suggest (and it did not affect us) is that this camp could be difficult for someone very unfit or with a disability. It might be worth mentioning on your website.
Lovely location. Were given the best room of the camp with view over the water hole. Staff very friendly and eager to please. (Maybe a little too much so)
This had been opened the previous day by the President. Good camp although pretty difficult to find the `Galton Gate` - thought we might end up in Angola! Chalets very nice but no refrigerators or fans (coming in due course we gather)!. Jan, the Manager, was v. helpful and lent us his electric fan. Saw lots of game once we managed to locate a map of the waterholes in the area. Infinity pool was lovely.
fantastic lodge even if the waterholes are still under construction and no many animals are visibles. food was very good.
Very nice place. Check-out experience below average, everything else top notch.
Beautiful accommodations and setting, but awkward to get around. No game fences means mandatory escorts between rooms and restaurant before sunrise and after sunset. Our room seemed 1km from the restaurant, a long-ish walk on a cobblestone path. Could be difficult or inconvenient for disabled guests.
Good, though the camp wasn`t officially opened when I stayed there. Good value for money compared to Okaukuejo and Halali
Perfect place to be. Great lodge and great staff. They make you feel good all day long. What a treat!
Extremely nice and well placed. Extremely chic "Tents". Very good restaurant and bar and facilities, kind but a little unexperienced staff. No stress given they were not fully booked. Not for disabled/too old and any people who like the lazy way. We loved it, would have liked to stay at least two nights (next time...)
Absolutely 5 star and superb
They need a little more experience, however,the situation of the camp,on top of a hill is excellent. our chalet was very refined. Poor winelist.
