The lodge is located 45min south from the airport. The staff is friendly. The swimming pool is clear. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished. Dinner and breakfast are good. This is a good hotel.

Very convinient place to stay the first or last night; close to Windhoek and Airport, but still 20km out in the bush. Clean, good service, friendly staff and good food; quiet. Management might show a bit more hospitality.

We spent our last night here, hard to believe how close we were to the airport. Really relaxing, lovely staff, great views over the valley and a constant procession of animals visiting the waterhole right in front of the dining area and pool. Delicious dinner under a starlit sky and some very friendly guests next to us. Great value for... More

My wife and I spent two weeks travelling across Namibia with another couple, staying in eight different resorts/hotels/lodges. The Auas provided the best value for money for the entire trip. I understand they are under new management - they must have really focused on customer service and food - which were world-class. The rooms aren't perfect - but, again, it's... More

Thank you for your review, Auas does have the perfect view for a tired traveler after a long day of sitting in a car or plane. And who doesn't enjoy great food prepared with a lot of love. Elias is a total star. More

If you want a break from the "normal everyday cycle" then Auas Safari Lodge is the answer. Just 40 min. from Windhoek you will find tranquility with a view, service with a smile, food to over indulge in and cozy rooms. An affordable weekend (or mid-week) get away.

Very friendly owners, great design, nice gastronomic experience, cozy rooms with fireplace. Close to the capital. It was so sweet to get there right after the airport instead of spending night in Windhoek. Highly recommended!! We have just enjoyed.

This lodge was a much too "under rated" experience! Small but excellent! Service was excellent, the atmosphere, views were excellent! Food was good, although a very limited menu was presented (being a fixed menu), we enjoyed it very much! I'm sure that if this lodge was visited more regularly by tourists or locals, the hosts would up their menu and... More

Beautiful get away, with a very friendly staff. Not a bad view in the morning either. Well located for a couple to just get away from the fast life. The retro feel it provides is rather cosy and makes one feel at home while away.
