King Nehale Lodge

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

In the King Nehale Conservancy, the lodge aptly gets its name, situated just one kilometre from the northern entrance into Etosha National Park. A quiet corner of animal paradise, this side of Etosha is less visited and more remote. Expect open plains, palm trees, baobabs and wildlife.

Surrounded by local communities, you’re submerged in cultural heritage that runs throughout the lodge in décor, flair and cuisine. In the midst of the Oshikoto, Oshana, Ohangwena and Omusati Regions, there is evidence everywhere of the colourful Ovambo people that call the north home. Culture meets wildlife, merged harmoniously in luxury to make you feel like African royalty.

Shaped as a head of Nguni cattle, the 40 chalets span out from the main lodge area as the horns. Each with a private patio, your own plunge pool and endless view onto the Andoni plains. The rooms are adorned with items of local craftsmen and the Oshiwambo ethos sweeps through in the finest of details amongst the modern and lavish décor of royal blue and hues of red. Your very own homestead beckons you to sit and stare out at the seeming nothingness. Exhale and relax.

Local cuisines on offer bring you even further into the world of the culture inherent. Try something new and daring, maybe even Mopane worms. The food is good either way. We’ll leave it up to you to decide about the ‘delicacies’.

Although you may not see much wildlife from the lodge itself, they’ve got that covered. Head into the park, about an hour’s drive with your guide, to a private hide at one of Etosha’s largest waterholes and simply watch them come and go. Come and go, they will! Reserved for lodge guests only, it’s you and the wild. Add the snacks and refreshments and you’re set. Have your camera ready, you are well positioned here for the perfect shots.

Tranquility, relaxation, culture and wildlife. You can experience it all with the added luxuries and privacy at King Nehale. Traditional meets contemporary. Arrive as a guest, live as a royal.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities


Full day or half day game drives in a 9-seater safari vehicle into the famed Etosha National Park including refreshments, snacks and park entry fee or venture in on your own steam on a self-drive basis.

Enjoy the hide at a private waterhole in Etosha, a hide that only King Nehale guests can make use of. It comes at an extra cost, but worth it to come face to face with the wildlife in the park. It also includes refreshments and snacks so this is a must excursion to include if you wish to just sit. Wait and watch. Have your camera ready.

It’s all about the wildlife when visiting Etosha, this side of the park is quiet and less crowded. You’ll likely only encounter other lodges guests and the wildlife that hang around in these parts.

Various cultural experiences on request.
