    The restaurant need to get some serious shaking up. Ordered a meal 4 times for dinner...the first 3 option were not available and the waiter did not know that. He came back 3 times to tell us. The final choice was really not nice at all. did not even eat. Otherwise is was ok; but only just!

    This hotel offers warm, comfortable hospitality and is a good place to stay in Ghanzi. We enjoyed our short stay there.

    We stayed at Kalahari Arms both on the way up and back from the Delta and stayed at one of the family chalets. We were able to check in early, which was great when my mom wasn't feeling well. The restaurant on site is very handy and serves giant portions. The room was clean, comfortable and more than adequate for our purposes. The grounds are well kept and everyone was very kind. The pool was drained on both our visits, which wasn't a big deal since it was winter anyway, but would hope that's back in service soon. Will plan to stay here again if we travel from Namibia to the Okavango again.

    The only thing that spoiled a bit was the construction work. Had park quite a way from the room.

    Für die Durchreise mangels Alternativen ok

    Da wir nur auf der Durchreise waren ist es ganz ok gewesen. Aber Für mehrere Nächte würde ich das nicht empfehlen. Im Zimmer sehr schwankender wifi Empfang. Eine der Klima Anlagen im Zimmer funktionierte nicht. Die Zimmer sind sehr knapp bemessen (sehr schmaler Durchgang am Bett, kaum Platz um Koffer oder Taschen am Boden abzustellen) aber da es am Ort kaum Alternativen gibt kommt man kaum drum herum.

    Vor Bezug des Chalets Klimaanlage testen!

    Ich hatte ein Chalet mit Poolblick gebucht. Erst wurde uns ein Chalet gegeben vor dem noch ein anderes Chalet stand und somit kein Pool zu sehen war, außerdem waren laute Bauarbeiten direkt neben dem Chalet. Nach Rückfrage und längerer Wartezeit wurde uns dann ein anderes angeboten (angeblich das letzte freie). Die Raumaufteilung war für uns 2 Personen nicht so besonders, es gab 2 Schlafzimmer die ziemlich klein waren und ein sehr kleines Bad. Als wir dann Abends die Klimaanlage angemacht haben, dachten wir, wir würden auf der Startbahn eines Flughafens stehen. Die Klimaanlage (draußen an der Außenwand) war fürchterlich laut und die Wände wackelten teilweise wenn sie sich ausschaltete. Letzendlich haben wir dann ohne Klimaanlage geschlafen, da ich ansonsten trotz Ohrstöpsel vor Lärm nicht schlafen konnte. Das Frühstück war sehr sehr gut!

    Schöne Gartenanlage, gutes Restaurant, und gute Lage in Ghansi, aber insgesamt etwas heruntergekommen. Pool war außer Betrieb, Umbauarbeiten im Gange, Badezimmer deutlich renovierungsbedürftig und gemessen an ähnlichen Unterkünften in der Region ist das Kalahari Arms Hotel sehr deutlich überteuert. Zusätzlich war der angebotene Expedia Preis ca 50% höher als das Hotel die Preise vor Ort ausschreibt, so dass dass Preis/ Leistungsverhältnis überhaupt nicht passt.

    Buon punto di appoggio tra Maun e Windhoek. Ottimo il servizio al ristorante con personale abbastanza professionale. Bella piscina con acqua gelida. Wifi con un numero limitato di accessi. Se sei fortunsto ti colleghi diversamente....

    Schöner Zwischenstop auf dem Weg nach Windhoek

    Wir genossen ein sehr gutes a la carte Abendessen im Restaurant mit lokalen Gerichten und sehr freundlichem Service. Leider erfüllte das Frühstücksbuffet nicht ganz unsere Erwartungen und war vergleichsweise teuer.
