We had the most delightful stay at Etusis Campsite. The entire area was beautifully clean, the ablutions fabulously maintained, with wonderfully hot showers. Andreas, the gentleman in charge of the campsite, was helpful, welcoming and chatty, provided us with wood for our fire and was there to see us off the day we left. Perhaps a mention should be made...

We used this as a venue for a family gathering (7 adults, 4 children).We all had plenty of space and, having supper and breakfast together with the staff gave it a very familiar flair. We went riding. The children were led where appropriate but we were allowed to gallop - an exhilarating feeling. The game drive was fun with a...

We made a last minute booking for the self-catering Farmhouse and we were not disappointed. The area is magic if you want to experience Namibia in the raw and farm life. What a pleasure being woken in the morning with cows lowing. The dogs were also very accommodating, accompanying us on the walk to the waterfall. Guide and protector. We...

My boys and I had a great relaxing stay at the farm house at Etusis. Watching the lightning at night whilst laying on the outside sunbeds and waking up to the sounds of the farm was wonderful! loved the touch of getting fresh farm milk everyday and that my boys got to milk the cows. All the staff were very...

We stayed at Etusis for two nights and had an amazing time there! The lodge is located in the middle of nowhere (by our European standards). The area has suffered from a dry streak the past years, but is home to some flat as well as mountainous areas. Nevertheless, the lodge catered to all our needs and wants, had proper...

Very friendly and accommodating management. We liked the surroundings and the accommodation was better than expected. Will definitely come and stay again. Can recommend Etusis Lodge to anyone wanting to stay over in Karibib or Usakos.

My husband and I stayed at Etusis for 2 nights at the beginning of October. The area hasn't had rain in a long time and there are no watering holes near to the main accommodation. Dinner is expected that everyone eats together at 7. Which is fine except if some guests don't arrive at that time. We were made to...

Not a luxury tent. .. average dinner with a poor breakfast. Not worth going out of your way for. Great for horse riders mountain paths very scenic. Nice quiet location. Eating meals on shared tables a lovely idea.

Very friendly family-run lodge. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Kids friendly. Our kids loved the evening game drive (FOC!) Lodges are perfect for families. Kids had their own space with a small ladder under the roof and loved it. A small oasis in this harsh environment. Home style food. Lovely people! Best place that we stayed at during our Namibian holiday.
