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 Private Reserve on the southwest border of 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 seven, 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, a former hunting concession, and one 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; watch all the action at the waterhole in front of camp; hop on a night drive with some of the best guides out there; and, of course, track 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.
