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.

Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is in the Purros Conservancy and must surely take the prize for 'Most Remote Lodge in the Country'. Accessible by light aircraft or sturdy 4x4 vehicle, the lodge is like a time machine stuck in a land that hasn't changed in aeons.

If you are self-driving and not keen to brave the terrain - "off the beaten track" - from Sesfontein to the lodge, good news, they offer a daily pick-up (at an additional cost).

The lodge is built from local adobe and looks like a medieval hacienda in a Martian landscape. Each of the seven units looks out over the endless wilderness and has been fitted with pure luxury: en suite bathrooms with large tubs and two showers, one outdoors; private gazebos with day beds and cushions. The décor is a rich combination of earthy tones and dark African wood.

The main lodge features two open-sided lounges, a pool with a sun deck and shaded gazebo, a romantic dining area and a small library. Everywhere you go is that age-old view and the tranquillity is complete.

Facilities

Seven luxury chalets; en suite with bath tub; indoor and open air shower; private gazebo; swimming pool; indoor and outdoor dining; bar; sun deck; gazebo; organic potager garden; library; airstrip

Activities

Elephant tracking, scenic morning, afternoon and evening game drives, night drives; visit local Himba village; hiking trails in and around the Hoarusib Valley; bird watching; Desert Lion Project

Your nature drives follow the tracks of lion, elephant, black rhino and giraffe. And if you're lucky enough to see any of these majestic creatures, you'll be seeing the only desert-adapted versions of their kind in the world. On top of that there are several of Namibia's rare and endemic birds and smaller animals to look out for.
