Wau, did we enjoy our stay at this nice hotel in Windhoek. After being 2 weeks in the bush on safari, my fiancee and I were excited to stay in luxury for our two last nights in Namibia. We loved it and will come back to stay on our next planned trip in 2012!

Many thanks for a super holiday, we felt so special and spoilt!

Liebe Grusse, Julia Schmidt from Germany
