Much like sister lodge in the south of Namibia, Desert Homestead Outpost, Etosha Oberland Lodge is an elegant mix of rustic charm and tented luxury and a more than suitable choice for accommodation compared to others in the area without pushing budget boundaries.
Peacefully integrated into the dry bush savannah among the large Mopane trees, with two waterholes and private sundowner viewing spots, Etosha Oberland Lodge is quiet, intimate and the epitome of a safari stay in an area rife with wildlife.
The tents are secluded. Draped ceilings give an old-world safari camp feel combined with modern finishes of varied textures in stone, wood and leather. Add the neutral palette and light shades of green throughout and the inside of the tent gently mirrors the unobtrusive outside surrounds of the bush. Stylish and crisp, even the décor seems cooling in an otherwise hot and dry part of northern Namibia.
The main area of the lodge is welcoming and comfortable. An open-plan lobby, reception and lounge. Meals are a delight, there are five courses. Indulge and enjoy the setting. A glass of wine or a whiskey around the fireplace seems a fitting way to end the day.
A short drive from the park entrance gates, you can explore the wonder of Etosha National Park on your own. Take a self-drive or if you’re staying two nights or longer, join a guided safari through the park. Head off in an open safari vehicle with lunch packs included. Being in the park all day means you’re guaranteed to have some incredible sightings and there’s plenty to see. Etosha is more than just wildlife. The landscape and pan views are equally as impressive.
