  Twyfelfontein Lodge (you can see the open-air bar)
by toonsarah

We just stayed one night here, and that was enough. The plus points about this lodge are its convenient location only a few miles from the fascinating prehistoric rock art, and its attractive setting. There's a small pool with good views of the red mountains and local wildlife, and an okay restaurant serving slightly bland buffet dinners and good breakfasts. Both this and the bar are open sided, so can be a bit chilly at night, but are decorated in an interesting style with lots of rocky outcrops and tree trunks coming up through the floor. So why were we the only people in the bar? Perhaps because most of the other guests seemed to be in tour groups who were making their own amusements somewhere else?

Anyway, this large number of tour parties was the main down-side, but otherwise this is a reasonable, if somewhat impersonal, place to base yourself for a visit to this area. I guess we were just spoiled by the quality of some of the other accommodations we visited in Namibia, and this one just didn't really match that standard.

Unique Qualities: The rooms are in individual bungalows which are quite attractive - but the door to ours suddenly flew open as we were relaxing before dinner, so perhaps you should take care to always lock the door!
