Situated 30km north of Windhoek en route to Etosha and the north, and Swakopmund and the west, the lodge provides comfortable accommodation, good food, and a healthy dose of Africa's wilderness and wildlife. Okapuka Safari Lodge (once known as Okapuka Ranch) is about half an hour from Windhoek and about an hour from the international airport, making it the ideal overnight at the start or end of your journey without staying in the capital itself.
Since being refurbed, this lodge oozes safari appeal and modern elegance. It's homely, warm and welcoming. A delight added to your itinerary offering you a chance to breathe and relax, which if you ask us, is a must at the beginning or end of any holiday.
The lodge has 21 spacious rooms of which 4 are standard doubles, 16 are twin rooms including two interleading rooms (with two rooms each, suitable for families) and one suite. All have en suite bathrooms, air-conditioning (or heating) and a private terrace.
Surrounded by 7,300 hectares of Namibian bush, you could see giraffe, ostriches and even white rhino. Antelopes and warthogs are often seen waltzing by your room but if they don't, the setting in itself is quite sublime. It's quiet and as mentioned above, you'd never say you were just outside of one of Namibia's busiest city centres.
Sunset and sunset game drives and a spectacular Sunday lunch buffet (open to the public).
