BITTERWASSER LODGE

13 rondavels (huts), 22 air-conditioned bungalows and a homestead on the dunes - all in the African style.
Class: Lodge, 3 Star

This Namibia lodge gives visitors an ideal opportunity to experience the unspoilt beauty of Namibia on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, with the comfort of a beautifully situated lodge. The restaurant at the hotel serves mouth-watering cuisine. Bitterwasser was founded by the Namibian farmer and glider pilot Peter Kayssler. He used the Bitterwasser saltpan with its diameter of 3 kilometres as a runway system. Soon, the extraordinary thermal conditions of the Kalahari Desert became world famous. Not only incredibly fast, but also exceptionally long glider flights have been and are flown regularly in Bitterwasser. As one of the world's leading soaring centres, Bitterwasser offers soaring, scenic flights with a glider, micro-light or motorized planes, hot air ballooning, as well as nature drives, a swimming pool and biking.
