great camping space with a little house with shower / toilet / sink at each camping and lots of space between the sites, also nice Pool and great coffee and cake each afternoon. We also enjoyed the coming and going of many tame animals from Spingbok to Eland and the cute suricates around the Pool. Lots of renovations in the... More

This was a perfect starting point for our Namibian tour. Very good comfort on our rooms. They arranged a wonderful evening combo with scenic drive (giraffes, springboks, ostriches, gemsbok, cory busters) sundowner (close to a great mest from the socible weaver) and cheetah feeding. Mongooses and suricaats ran around the pub, and a springbok visited our dinner. Spend at least... More

We stayed in a nice hut with a view but we had to clamber over a sand dune to reach it (This was hut 1, the others were more accessible). Fortunately our suitcases were carried for us. An unusual place with it's own family of meercats which enjoyed performing for us. Staff and owners friendly and food ok. We enjoyed... More

We always seem to finish our tours with a place we don't want to leave. Right from our arrival, we knew Bagatelle was somewhere special. From the horses and mongoose in front of our chalet to the tame springbok and stunning dinner, Bagatelle never failed to present us with Wow factor. This was luxury, service and delicious food in the... More

There was no electricity point at the camp stand although it was indicated as such on info received. No hot water for shower. Poor lighting possible due to low charge solar battery. No reply to feedback email after a week

Unfortunately we could only get one night at Bagatelle but we loved every minute of it. My partner voted it his favorite campsite on our 8 week trip through southern Africa. Each campsite has its own bathroom and washing up facilities, the pitches are sandy, most have a small tree for shade,The sites are spread out for privacy and are... More

A very nice ranch with good rooms and friendly personnel. The safari tour was a lot of fun and we saw some giraffes! Dinner was tasty although the service could be improved a little by serving drinks like champagne and wine in the correct glasses.

Whilst Bagatelle is a lovely lodge facility, we felt the camping facility could do with a little more attention to detail. There was no hot water despite the solar power system on each shower unit. Possibly better to use a gas geyser which we found to be more reliable for hot water on a cold Namibian night. Camping is great... More

This lodge absolutely offer the most fantastic Kalahari experience. Very nice accommodation and the late afternoon sun downer safari is a must. Our guide Felix was really very,very good. The owners and staff deserve a round of applause for their excellent service.
