overview

Sited just over six miles or 10km the popular Andersson Gate to Etosha National Park in Namibia, Etosha Safari Lodge is perfect for large groups travelling together and has a unique ‘African shebeen with a twist’ look and feel.

Boasting lovely views over the mopane bush from the hillock on which it is located, Etosha Safari Lodge has 65 double cottages, three swimming pools and a large buffet-style restaurant with pre-allocated seating. It is the communal areas – especially the Okambashu Restaurant and Oooh Shebeena Bar – that make the lodge especially memorable: inspired by ‘township chic’, the décor consists of historical and political memorabilia that celebrates the country’s past while the furniture comprises unique items like chairs fashioned from recycled tractor tyres, with plenty of authentic zinc cladding. Like any shebeen (or township tavern) worth its salt, the bar at Etosha Safari Lodge also has a pool table and television for watching sport.

The cottages have air conditioning, queen-sized beds and en suite bathrooms that have a touch of whimsy in the large showers. Although there is no wildlife around the lodge, there are daily 4x4 game drives into Etosha, which is Namibia’s flagship reserve.

Standard Room

There are 65 cottages spread out across the large property – ask for one close to the main lodge if you prefer not to walk. All rooms are brick with zinc roofs, a typical architectural rural style in Southern Africa. Each is equipped with air conditioning, chairs on the terrace and a queen-sized bed draped in mosquito netting. Colourful African art adorns the walls while the en suite bathrooms have a comical elephant motif in the large shower!
