In the middle of the Kaokoveld, an almost untouched region in the northwest of Namibia, the Okahirongo Elephant Lodge fits elegantly into the rough landscape and is an oasis in the oldest desert of the world. The ochre-coloured chalets above the dry riverbed of the Hoarusib offer protection like a fortress and are at the same time the starting point for spectacular excursions into the land of the Himba nomads. Traces of desert lions and elephants are searched for under expert guidance.More Info Video
The lodge was built by Italian owners who brought in a perfectionist obsession for style and a deeply rooted love for the region. Rossella Mauri and her friend Lucia Vullo have anchored their hearts deeply into this region and ensure the lodges are run to perfection and true Italian hospitality. Being privately owned, they are proud members of Classic Safari Africa.
Seven spacious chalets, as well as a Presidential Suite, offer a total of 18 guests exclusive accommodation with the highest comfort in front of an impressive landscape. Openness to nature characterises the futuristic architecture with a large panorama pool in the centre. After dinner in the open air, the open fireplace lures you in. With local guides, the last Himba nomads are visited and the traces of desert elephants and desert lions are pursued.
Special interest activities include:
Visit Himba grail
Nature drive on tracks of desert elephants, desert lions and black rhinos
