Eningu has 9 rooms - there are doubles, triples and a family room which can sleep up to 4. They all have en-suite bathrooms with showers, ceiling fans and desks.
The lodge is constructed almost entirely from handmade bricks, and all rather artily decorated. Not that that's a word but it does convey the stench of creativity. There are sculptures and art works, hand painted floors and antique furniture.
Most of the rooms are set up in pairs in low buildings with heavy thatched roofs. Some share a porch.
There's a recycled vibe too with old pipes used as towel rails and mirrors with tin-can surrounds. It's all pretty eclectic. One room has a small, triangular table suspended between three branches which houses the tea and coffee-making facilities. Cool.
The family room is much larger than the other rooms and is more private. It has its own sitting room and a small garden area with hammocks.
Visits to local craftspeople and a nature drive around Eningu's own slice of the Kalahari are possible, as well as a tour of a nearby farm.
There are well-marked hiking trails through the Namibian savanna. The botanical hiking trail will take you through a variety of vegetation. It'll take 6 hours so you'll have a picnic but maybe take a load of snacks too.
You can go on game drives but don't expect to see any big game here. This place is more about chilling in the beautiful scenery.
The hide near the waterhole is a good spot for doing nothing. Porcupine often wander by in the evenings. Who can blame them? Kitchen scraps are left out for them. Bird wise you may see white backed vulture, secretary bird, tawny eagle, homophone and blacksmith lapwing. Animal-wise look out for kudu, duiker, cheetah, wildebeest and leopard.
You can do archery on-site or play volleyball and badminton.
A must for those interested in art is a visit to the sculptor Dorte Berner, whose home is about a 15-minute drive away. The lodge can arrange a private tour of her exhibition.
