Anandi Mariental Guesthouse
Anandi Guest House is situated in the Namibian southern central town of Mariental, approxiamately 260km from Windhoek, 220km from Keetmanshoop and 560km from Luderitz.

Amenities at Anandi Guest House include a restaurant, swimming pool, Wi-Fi Internet facility, braai and a function room that can double up as a conference centre for up to 60 delegates. Breakfast, a light lunch and dinner are served and lunch packs can be ordered the previous evening.

The meerkat or suricate is a small mammal which inhabits the Kalahari - we do not know why this lodge is named after them. Perhaps if you stay here and find out you can tell us and then we can make this slightly more descriptive.

The third lodge on the Intu Afrika Kalahari Game Reserve (along with Suricate & Camethorn Lodges). The Kalahari is absolutely magnificent and really should be a part of any visit to Namibia.
