Great weekend, friendly/helpful people awesome place. If anything the pool needs a bit of attention, but apart from that I can honestly not say anything bad, in fact I can only say good things. The lions Roar Activity was awesome and something to remember.The meals was also very good and the bar service of high quality.

Our stay at Harnas was overall a huge pleasure, service was good, staff very friendly, tour guide very good. We had a really great time. As we camped I cannot comment on the rooms. The noise level from the staff quarters at night should be reduced drastically, as we would have rather enjoyed peaceful nature and listened to the sounds...

We travelled 9 hours from Maun to spend a couple od days at Harnas. The long drive was certainly worth it. The people at Harnas are doing an exceptional job with the animals and the local people. We have never been so close to big cats and our guide Bonita is exceptional in her knowledge and enthusiasm. We were camping...

Thank you for everything. We had an unbelievable great time which started with a warmly welcome. As soon as we stepped into the park, we felt like in an unreal world where humans and animals are leaving peacefully together. We stayed on the campground. Each place has its own kitchen, table, fireplace, barbeque facility and a lovely openair shower. During...

As an operator we do not always take the chance to visit properties we sell for our own holidays. Harnas was the perfect getaway as my son had way to much fun with all the animals. it was an experience for me as I think it was well with it, especially the morning drive with all the carnivores! the only...

I've travelled quite a lot and been to some wonderful animal orientated places, from National Parks, game lodges, sanctuaries and safari parks, this is hands down the best I have ever been to. It's on the pricey side to stay in the cottage and the food is below par with limited choice, but let's face it, anyone visiting won't care...

We stayed at Timbila, the family unit for 6. Very nice interior and setting. We stayed for 1 night and should've stayed another night! Upon arrival, we booked all our tours (Cheetah walk, baboon walk and lion roar at dawn). The baboon walk was nice, a bit stressful.... The young ones are very busy so be advised to wear old...

The arrival through the small electric gate gave way to a beautiful enormous garden of eden. Animals wondering around including wart hogs! It was such a delight and gave the impression of love for the animals. The accommodation we had was comfortable with a fridge and complimentary wine. We had one of the lodges. The food was adequate not a...

I really enjoyed my stay at Harnas. It offers so much more than just a place to overnight - it is an experience that one don't often stumble upon and I have great appreciation for the wonderful people who keep this massive operation going. I was however a little bit disappointed on arriving at our campsite. The camping rates are...

I will recommend Harnas to all Namibian travellers. It was a big highlight on our trip. Especially the work they do for the animals. This will be a perfect "Gap" year/time for students who love the outdoor and who loves animals.
