In the centre of this bustling market town, the Ohakane Lodge is an excellent base from which to explore this rugged realm of rocky mountains, grizzly heat and mopane savannah. You're central to the town of Opuwo and close to all basic amenities and beer halls.
All rooms at the lodge have en suite bathrooms and much needed air conditioning. The thatched living area houses the restaurant, bar, bistro and a small curio shop. If the air conditioning in the rooms is much needed, the pool is essential and its lush lawn and thatched gazebo will provide a welcome retreat after a days bird watching and interaction with the proud Himba.
A little out of town and smaller, quieter and more rustic is Mopane Camp - the younger sibling to Ohakane Lodge and another excellent base camp for exploring the Kunene region. Both lodges offer day trips and longer excursions that take you deep into the uncharted territories camping overnight wherever ample shade can be found.
