Etosha Safari Lodge


This subtantial lodge is just 10km south of Etosha’s Andersson’s Gate and overlooks a vast expanse of mopane woodland. Space is an attractive element at Etosha Safari Lodge with a spacious deck and dining area, and airy rooms with private verandas.

After visiting Etosha, return to the lodge to relax, dive into the cool pools or indulge in quality food and wine – and peace. The lodge, a world away from the hustle and bustle of Okaukuejo, offers comfortable accommodation with easy reach of the park. Dine under a dome of stars on the veranda, sit next to a blazing fire or watch the red orb of the sun sink gracefully into the landscape from the sunset deck.


Each of the 60 twin/double rooms and five family rooms has air-conditioning/heating, en-suite bathroom with shower, safe, veranda and tea/coffee.

This was our second visit to Namibia in just over 12 months, with Reef and Rainforest and our seventh consecutive wildlife trip with them. I think that speaks for itself. This year we were particularly keen to try and observe some desert adapted Lions. The Lions found in ‘The Namib Desert’ are genetically identical to those found in the rest of Southern Africa but have adapted to live in one of the harshest environments on earth. They number around 150 and have a huge range, and are rarely seen. They came to prominence in the outstanding documentary film ‘Vanishing Kings’. The best chance of observing members of this subset of Lions is during a stay at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, although sightings cannot be guaranteed and weeks can pass by without any success. Therefore a stay at this camp was at the heart of our itinerary and we were very lucky to spend time with a Lioness and her niece who had killed an Oryx in the conservancy. The camp itself is absolutely outstanding in every respect and the location is just spectacular.

Visitors should be aware that this is not ‘The Serengeti’ and that the wildlife is quite thin on the ground. However you would have to be very unlucky not to see Elephant, Giraffe and several other species. Whilst we were out in the desert we were lucky to bump in to Dr P. Stander who has dedicated the whole of his adult life to the conservation of The Desert Lion, what a thrill. The day trip out to the coast was pretty special as well.

The rest of the itinerary worked very well and we were very pleased to have three full days in Etosha N.P. where we recorded 25 mammal species, including 32 individual Lions, observed the aftermath of 4 zebra kills, 11 Rhinoceros (both Black & White), an African Wildcat and the rarely seen in Etosha, elusive Leopard.

So a big thank you to ALL at Reef and Rainforest, another highly successful trip, you certainly delivered again.
