Overview of Gmundner Lodge

Nestled between the Kalahari Desert and the Khomas Mountains, Gmunder Lodge is situated on 14,800 acres of private conservancy in the heart of Namibia’s dramatic wilderness. The reserve hosts a rich and diverse variety of animals, including plains game, big cats, and some of the Big Five. Marvel at the majesty of large antelopes, such as kudu and oryx, grazing along the grasslands. Common sightings also include both black and white rhinos—a dream for any wildlife photography enthusiast.

As a wildlife getaway, the lodge offers a classic safari experience with the timeless elegance of roll-away canvas exteriors, panoramic viewing decks, and world-class dining and the Makai wellness spa. Escape to the sanctity of your suite, where you’ll feel like royalty in your spacious palatial lodgings. Indulge in the luxury of indoor and outdoor bathing areas, surrounded by the warm glow of the sun setting over the desert and the blissful chirping of wild bird species.

Year-round exceptional game viewing from multiple exciting vantage points sets this lodge apart from a traditional safari getaway. Engage in thrilling e-motocross across the expanse of the reserves, or book a scenic helicopter tour for panoramic views alongside the much-loved safari staples of bush walks and game drives.
