Set on a private nature reserve an easy drive from Hosea Kutako International and Windhoek Eros Domestic Airports, Omaanda makes a magical stayover in Windhoek, whether at the start or end of your safari. The lodge prides itself on a comfortably relaxed atmosphere and impeccable, personalised service for an overnight’s stay in Windhoek.
Overlooking a rolling savannah landscape, Omaanda offers a total of 10 rooms, all air conditioned and en suite. There are eight chalets with a double bed or twin beds, and two larger chalets that can sleep up to six guests and are ideal for families. Traditional in feel but modern in build, the lodge has a world-class range of facilities such as Wi-Fi throughout the property, a Bluetooth television in each room, a heated swimming pool and a wellness spa.
The ambience at Omaanda is unmistakably Namibia: the thatched chalets are modelled on local Owambo huts, the sun sets over thorn trees and you may hear the distant cough of a leopard at night. Formerly a cattle ranch, the Zannier Reserve on which Omaanda is found was created in collaboration with the local community, who were seeking to rehabilitate the land. Wildlife has been reintroduced and includes several rare creatures such as wild dogs and white rhinos as well as more familiar ones like giraffe, zebra and baboon, all waiting to be discovered on morning or afternoon game drives.
