Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Previously Egumbo Lodge, now Iris Boutique Hotel and Restaurant, this accommodation option is small and sophisticated with views out over the Walvis Bay Lagoon. With just nine rooms, including a honeymoon suite, the mood is intimate and the setting is somewhat worldly with a hint of rustic Africanness to complete the picture.

Either with four-poster beds or ornate headboards, the rooms are large and the en suite bathrooms enormous by hotel standards, with double-size showers, slipper baths and twin vanities. The bedding and furniture is of a high quality, if a little on the dark side of austerity, and small touches like central heating - unheard of in these parts but definitely welcome - providing a sufficient level of comfort.

The living areas are just as elegant and modest with a view across the road of the Walvis Bay lagoon, invariably festooned with flamingos, pelicans, cormorants, a variety of waders and many other species that join forces to create one of the sub-continent's most important wetland birding sites.

Another welcome touch is the heated pool behind the house sheltered from the south-wester that blows off the polar current. Breakfast is an impressive spread of cold, hot, savoury and sweet options and dinners are available if you don't feel up to the trying out any of the nearby restaurants.
