Etosha Safari Lodge

Etosha Safari Lodge

Etosha Safari Lodge is set on a small hill or “koppie” 9 kilometers from the Anderson Gate entrance into Etosha National Park. Because of the slight elevation, views from the camp across the Namibian savanna are magnificent. A sister establishment, Etosha Safari Camp, is only 1.5 kilometers away. Etosha Safari Lodge is ideal for visitors who wish to explore Etosha National Park without lodging in the park itself. The lodge offers daily guided tours into Etosha National Park.

In the main building are a restaurant, bar, and comfortable guest lounge. On hot afternoons or after dusty drives into Etosha the three swimming pools beckon—one of the pools can even be booked for private swimming sessions. Guests can also make use of the laundry and secure parking facilities. Meals are served buffet style, and the evening meal often has a variety of game meats to tantalize your taste buds. South African wines are available.

The lodge has sixty single or double room chalets, including five family rooms that are equipped with en-suite bathroom, fan, mosquito nets, tea/coffee station, and private veranda with amazing views of the surrounding bush and plains.

Activities at the lodge include self-drive as well as guided trips into Etosha National Park on which you will visit numerous waterholes in search of game. Keen birders will find the bird watching excellent as more than 300 bird species have been recorded.

Etosha National Park is Namibia's prime wildlife destination and one of Southern Africa's finest game reserves. Covering an area of approximately 22,270 square kilometers, it is home to a wide variety of wildlife Most numerous are the plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, springbok, impala, and eland. Especially in the dry season, animals congregate at the park’s many waterholes, creating wonderful viewing and outstanding photographic opportunities. It is also here where one may be fortunate enough to see a “kill.”

Etosha is also home to the endangered black rhino and the unusual black-faced impala. Join elephant herds numbering fifty strong as they take their daily bath and generally throw their weight around at the waterholes. Large herds of grazers inhabit the plains west of Okaukuejo and the plains around Fisher's Pan near Namutoni. The huge concentrations of herbivores are in themselves a defense strategy against relatively high numbers of predators.
