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.

This is what you’d call a lodge with a view - bang in front of a waterhole. Granted, not the biggest pond, but perfect if you want to be romantic, share a bottle of wine and watch rhinos and giraffes slurping away as you do. They look after orphaned giraffes here too so be prepared for long necked visitors to wander over. Heaven for the kids.

Okutala Lodge is on a 24,000 hectare farm. It’s huge. Expect a long drive from gate to lodge - but trundle in around dusk and you’ll see wildlife everywhere. And you haven’t even arrived yet.

Far enough away from Etosha to feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere but still close enough to visit - we’re talking about 25 miles or give or take a 40 minute drive.

21 air conditioned rooms, each with a private shaded patio - some overlooking the waterhole. Seriously, these animals will be 40 yards away.

There are family rooms if you need one, with a shared bathroom and a separate adjacent room. You have your own door between the two so you can check on the kids without leaving your apartment. Stumble in, resettle and get back to the wine and wildlife. Quick.

The other thing the kids will love - those giraffes roaming around whilst you’re eating breakfast or in the pool. There are resident chipmunks, mongoose and peacocks too.

You’ll see the ubiquitous thatched roofs but the beds are comfortable with lots of pillows and a little gift which is rather solicitous of them.

Facilities

Activities

Albert’s the man to know if you want to take a safari. He pretty much knows it all when it comes to wildlife.

You can feed hyena, giraffe, elephant, leopard, cheetah and rhino - they hand raise and rehabilitate animals with the aim to re-release them.

They also offer guided hikes, cycling safaris (on request), an endangered species tour, bush buffets and picnics (on request).
