Etusis Lodge is an oasis that allows peace of mind and relaxation amidst the harsh reality of the worst drought in decades. The staff is courteous and well informed about different aspects of this amazing environment.

We stayed in the farmhouse for 3 nights in mid-July. We were with our family (3 children of 6, 3 and 1) and my parents. The farmhouse was very spacious. A lot of space for the kids to play. They loved to look for stones or look at the goats and horses, or just play in the sand. The beds...

There are various options for accommodation. We were only two, but had a huge farmhouse to ourselves. The minimum stay is for two days and as it is a long way from the main roads this is fine, especially as there are tours of the farm, riding and walks. One can also continue into the Namib.

Etusis Lodge is a nice family location, where you can get in touch with the way of life on a farm. The host ist very nice although the furniture would need a fresh up we really can recommend this place and will visite again when we are next time in Namibia.

We visited Etusis Lodge on a weekend for an escape from the city life. It was very peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed the mountains climbing and the walks. Scenery is absolutely beautiful. There are also fantastic horse riding and lessons.

Etusis Lodge is a lovely place. It is a very serene and peaceful place, and the staff made me feel at home. Meals are eaten together with staff and other lodgers. It was like one big family. I stayed at a tent chalet and loved it. I am hoping to return here sooner than later!

We had a lovely mother-and-son-trip over the Easter weekend at Etusis Lodge. Very friendly staff all together, beautiful stunning surrounding with the magnificent Otjipatera Mountain in front of the Lodge. The place has a peaceful, family orientated atmosphere.

What a lovely stay we had in our tents. The staff, all of them, from the gardeners, cleaners, chefs, they are all very friendly.

We had a very peaceful stay, the team was very warmful and smiling, the food was good. Just negative thing was that cleanliness of the rooms should be reviewed, especially the room's floors, upstairs.

We had a lovely stay, the lodge is beautiful and the staff is friendly and helpful. The dirt road to the lodge is rather far, but safe to travel. We actually saw a Zebra crossing the road next to one of the Zebra crossing road signs, that was amazing!!!
