Etosha National Park, Namibia

Be at one with nature

Safarihoek Lodge perches on top of a hill in the middle of northern Namibia’s arid, captivating savannah, bordering the world-famous Etosha National Park. The rugged Namibian savannah stretches into the distance, dotted with just a couple of sparse trees and bushes here and there and the wildlife roams freely across the never-ending space, unhindered and unobstructed.

Raised high above the savannah on wooden platforms, each of the 11 thatched chalets look out over the vast plains below, complete with zebra and elephant ambling by. Each chalet offers high ceilings, large beds and en suite bathrooms and some also enjoy outdoor showers.

The central camp consists of a large lounge area, wine cellar, dining area, and a small curio shop all under thatch and a swimming pool provides cool refreshment under the Namibian sun. On chilly evenings during the dry season meals are served inside from where you can watch the wild through the large glass windows while in warmer months, meals are enjoyed alfresco on the outdoor deck. A cozy outdoor area with roaring fire is an inviting spot for socializing with sundowners or a nightcap after dinner.

Early morning and afternoon game drives take place in the Etosha Heights Private Reserve where you will look for the elusive black and white rhino amongst large concentrations of plains game and night drives are also highly recommended to see the area’s nocturnal creatures.

Those keen on photography, or those simply wanting to observe Namibia’s elephants from a new perspective, can visit the camp’s unique, double-tiered photography hide for fantastic encounters at close range.

The Namibian Savannah is a place of silence and solitude and Safarihoek lodge provides a rare opportunity to be at one with nature in comfort and style.

The trip exceeded my expectations and was the best family holiday I have ever had. Our children simply loved it and now I know more about African wildlife than they do about our own farm animals.
