If you’re looking for something snobbish, continue straight on. Londiningi is the exact opposite. Whether it’s because of the place or the hosts, we find ourselves in the lap of comfort and a sincere welcome.
As for the setting, the 9 rooms spaced around the sumptuous garden and swimming pool, offer their irreproachable comfort, authentic charm and a permanent attention to detail -terra cotta floor tiles, furniture and fabrics chosen with taste, decoration simple and refined. We find the same generosity in the dining room – a personalized and lavish breakfast, or dinner derived from an eclectic mix of French and Namibian cuisine, served on tables daintily decorated. What’s more, many of the art objects that adorn this guest house, decidedly unlike others, are for sale – without any profit to the establishment – in order to help local artists and artisans.
On the human side, equally, Londiningi well deserves it’s name, which means “he who protects and shelters “ a Nguni word (of which Zulu is a dialect).
Nathalie (French) and Alexander (Namibian) will bend themselves 16 times over in order to satisfy their guests’ needs, many of whom quickly become friends, as the Golden Book stands to witness (guest comments) filled with many moving testimonies of gratitude.
Proof that Londiningi is not just a simple stopover, less still a dormitory or canteen. Whether we come here on our own, as a couple or a family, whether we visit here for a day or a long stay, whether we search for some quiet time, or intense moments of fun, Londiningi is a haven we cannot forget.
