We enjoyed our stay for one night at Hohenstein Lodge. The view was great, the food really good and the staff very nice. They could be a little more proactive but we felt they all were happy working there. The room was also nice but we had the first room on the right side so the sun really heated up...

We were very sorry we had only booked into this lodge for one night as there is plenty to do here. Our bungalow was spacious, very clean & comfortable with a lovely view of the mountain and surrounds. Our food was excellent and the service spot on. Would be happy to stay here again & for more than one night

The location of the Hohenstein Lodge is excellent and the rooms adequate. There were walking trails and indoor and outdoor dining rooms, but the food was the worst we encountered on our entire 15 day travels in Namibia. For dinner we were served canned string beans and what seemed like canned carrots although they might have been frozen. Dessert, which...

We spent two nights at Hohenstein as the last leg of a tour around Namibia. The photos we'd seen really didn't do it justice. It's in a superb isolated location close to the base of Hohenstein mountain which rises dramatically out of the plain. Our favourite part was watching the sun go down from the viewing platform, but the views...

We stayed one night and everything was just fine: friendly people, nice room, good food and a wonderful landscape. and a wonderful terrace for the sundowner! We went for a hike around the lodge and met the two giraffes and a bunch of gnus. They offer a trip two the "small miners", which sounded really interesting. Unfortunately we missed this.

The rooms offer a splendid view on the Hohenstein mountain. The infrastructure is sound and very well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. All this for a moderate price. I can really recommend it!
