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.

Mount Etjo Safari Lodge owes its abundant and varied wildlife to the passionate toil of the game sanctuary's creator, Jan Oelofse. Founded in 1975 with a handful of tents and about as much money, the Okanjati Game Sanctuary is now host to 300 species of bird and over 50 species of mammal and innumerable small animals. The reserve is home to a total of 8000 plus animals. Impressive.

The swimming pool and a large deck look out over the waterhole and the game viewing is excellent year round. Black and white rhino have been reintroduced and there are several rare species of mammal including Hartmann's mountain zebra, Damara dik-dik, black-faced impala, roan, sable, red lechwe and nyala. The sanctuary also has elephant, lion, leopard and cheetah. There’s a good chance, if you stay long enough, that you could see most.

Rooms are comfortable with en suite bathrooms, luxury versions have jacuzzis and they all have a view of a busy waterhole. The main lodge features a rustic lapa dining area where al fresco meals by the light of a campfire are a highlight. The food is uncomplicated with liberal use of the barbecue and no shortage of Namibia's excellent game meat.

It’s the ideal stopover, but even better for multiple nights if you wish to make the most of it and give yourself time enough to relax in this pure Namibian wilderness.
