The 21 en suite chalets are screed-floored, thatch-roofed odes to the Victorian era. Antiques, muted colours and soft furnishings turn the brittle heat of Damaraland into a soft air of elegance and luxury. The air conditioning and ceiling fans also help.
The main lodge is built around a large rim-flow pool that shares its horizon with the African bush. Victorian meets the jet set in the living area with its pool bar, restaurant, lounge, cigar lounge, library, wellness spa and the rustic outdoor dining area. Mahogany wood panelling, leather upholstery, deep colours and wheel-barrow sofas mark the décor and comfort level.

Game drives on Epacha Game Reserve; night drives; game drives to Etosha National Park; guided walks; sundowner drive; bush barbeques & wellness spa
Game viewing tops the list of activities and you have the choice of game drives in the private Epacha Game Reserve, which has 21 indigenous antelope including sable and the endangered black rhino, or visiting Etosha, which has all of Africa's famous game.
A new route through a neighbouring reserve will shorten the drive to Etosha National Park but best plan to leave early as it's still quite a drive to get there.
