Along with good wine, cheese, and the founders of Natural Selection, some things get better with age – and Etosha Mountain Lodge is one of them. Located in the exclusive Etosha Heights Reserve, just outside Etosha National Park, the lodge has been going strong for over 10 years and we’re delighted to have taken the reins, ready for the 2018 season. We’ve got plans for a small facelift, and we’ll be primping and priming the chalets and the main area in due course. What we can promise you is eight, safari-chic chalets, all with 180 degree, camera-loving panoramas of the wilderness, a beautiful main ‘lapa’ area, and a cool swimming pool for the hot, Namibian days.
And the activities certainly won’t disappoint either. Think morning and afternoon game drives in the private reserve, which was formerly hunting concession, and which we are pleased to be rehabilitating into a photographic safari area. Go out in search of big cats and watch for signs of elephant on the horizon, enjoy midday visits to the waterhole hide in front of camp and night drives and walking safaris with some of the best guides out there; and, of course, tracking endangered rhino, the icons of the area. The reserve also boasts one of the most impressive and professional anti-poaching stations in Namibia, which can be visited and experienced first hand.
