Too much of too less
magnificent nature and 4 very friendly stuff people, beside this there where always too less. Bring enough food and drinks on your own to get through. 2 people one towel for the pool, 1 blanket, breakfast 1 slice of things, 1 spoon of cerials with 1 spoon of dairy, not enough ice cubes for cold drinks, not enough drinks, no water boiler in the room, so not hot enough water for early morning coffee without milk. Gamedrive without instructions, bring your own drinks. Tiny and narrow feeling when everything is counted and restricet This magnificent nature can't balance the price...
Very, very nice - everything!
After a 3 week Namibia roundtrip, we spent the last 3 nights in the wonderful Greenfire Desert Lodge. It was perfect to relax, walk and enjoy the dreamlike landscape. The lodge staff was very friendly and warm - we become friends in this very short time. The lodge is perfect for quiet and relaxing days. The night sky is just amazing - never before we saw the stars and the milky way so clear!
Lodge cancelled our stay one month before our arrival!
We booked this lodge in June last year for four people through Booking.com. One month before our arrival we were simply told by Booking and Lodge management that they cannot accomodate us, because of the alleged “overbooking” which they have “overseen”. Ooops! They offered us alternative lodge of the much worse quality and more than 100 km away from our route. We are not with any travel agency, but travelling ourselves so this unexpected complication has caused us tremedous problems with finding the alternative accomodation. We have finally found one, more expensive and not so much in line with our travel plan, because one month before arrival are all the lodges in the area fully booked. I consider approach of the Greenfire Desert Lodge highly unprofessional and extremely rude. I am of the opinion that they kicked us out because of the bigger group. (No matter what they reply on this review will be.). Don't risk by booking this lodge bacause you may end up sleeping in the desert!
Awesome stay at the greenfire lodge. Dedicated and friendly owners and staff. Great food. Nice nature drive with a guide is possible. Above all an amazing view from the rooms who are located near the mountain.
Stunning. One of the bestbplsves we stayed
SETTING 6 rooms in the middle of nowhere. You are completely off the grid a d it feels great. The lodge is set so all you can see around you is stunning landscape. Incredible views including at night when you can easily see the milky way. TRANSPORT The roads around the lodge were bad when we went and a 4x4 was required. SOSSUSVLEI We visited Sossusvlei whilst stayed here. It's doable but it's very far and not ideal. We left at Dawn, I think it took just under 3 hours to drive there. FOOD The good here is brilliant. The ladies who cook it are wonderful. It is a set menu each night and all guests sit in the same room and eat together. The room is nice with a sofa area, log fire and honesty bar. The food was some of the best we had in Namibia. STAFF This could be better. Our hot water did not work the whole time we were here. The pilot light on the boiler i think had gone out. The handyman (also the tour guide) couldn't fix it. The owners are brilliant but you don't really ever see them, so they didn't fix it. SAFARI This was more about the scenery than the animals as unfortunately they'd all left. It's never going to compare to Etosha, it's a different experience. You are more likely to see zebra, oryx and other deer. Take something warm as when the sunsets it gets cold in that open vehicle. ELECTRICITY Charge your camera's and phones before you get here. There are only a couple of electric points in the dining room which are shared by all the bedrooms. It's all solar a d you're off grid,so that fine with me, just be aware.
