Stayed for 3 nights. Went horse riding a lot. They take care very well of their horses. The rides are awesome, sometimes with sundowners or a bush breakfast. The location of the lodge is beautiful: wildlife roaming around in front of your room and the pool terrace. Room was spacious, food was great, and the staff were all so very...

Kambaku is a wonderful lodge as it excels in several aspects: beautiful rooms designed with sense for lovely details; excellent food; plenty of space all over the lodge; impressive wildlife reserve with a large number of animals; organisation of safaris and tours; or simply relax by the pool in close vicinity of the waterhole. In particular, the horseback safaries are...

Kambaku was the second stay on our 3-week tour of Namibia, and certainly one of the most enjoyable ones. We arrived in the early evening after a drive from Windhoek and received a warm welcome complete with cold drinks. That evening we caught a first glimpse of African wildlife from the terrace as we observed giraffes and gnus at the...

We were more than impressed with Kambaku! We had booked our 2 children (8 and 12) for their kids holiday program through Birte who is super efficient and so helpful. I did little research on the lodge beforehand (very unlike me) as Birte made me feel so at ease and sent me lots of info on the program. We arrived...

After 16 days of traveling around in Namibia, we were happy to spend the last days of our holiday in Kambaku, where we could relax at the fire, swim, play pingpong, ... Our son celebrated his 9th birthday here and the family atmosphere between guests as well as with the personnel gave him an unforgettable experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kambaku; it was the perfect place for our first visit to Africa and our first sightings of the animals we had travelled so far to see. The management and staff are among the best we have encountered anywhere; with thatched roof rooms, fire pit outside for cool evenings and walking trails leading to "blinds"...

Excellent horses, food and lodging! What more can a woman ask for? On the safari we saw four different kinds of antelops, zebras, giraffes, wilderbeast, ostriches and warthogs. And in the evening we had them for dinner :) Mia
