Kalahari Sands and Casino Review

Known locally as the Sands, this is where England's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip stayed in 1990, the year of Namibia's independence. That said, the rooms are pleasant but bland (it's one of those hotels where you could be anywhere in the world) and a bit tired, but it's the hotel's central location that wins it brownie points.
