Crafted into the boulders, the lodge blends into the surrounds effortlessly. Onduli Ridge is exquisite in design and interior. It’s all elegant, modern and sleek, yet there’s something about it that adds charm and character making it different, unique and memorable. Although the view alone is something you’ll never forget.
Your suite opens up entirely allowing you to take in as much of the incredible setting at all times. It’s a feature that leaves you feeling immersed in nature, yet with every luxury thought out. The muted palette allows the views beyond to set the scene as far as they eye can see. There are no distractions here. It’s pure bliss in ultimate comfort.
Located on the private Doro !Nawas Conservancy it’s remote and intimate. It’s a much needed addition to the area. Both in lifting the overall standard of the lodges found in these parts, since it’s easily Damaraland’s finest and in investing into the local communities. It’s a premium stay with a heart set on conservation of this incredible piece of land and the people that call this place home.
Doro !Nawas means ‘place where the rhinos roam’ in Khoekhoegowab. Don’t worry if you can’t pronounce the language or understand why there’s an exclamation at the start of a word. It’s for the very distinct click sound in the name. You’ll be hearing it a lot in these parts. The lodge itself gets its name from the resident giraffe of the area.
Besides the elusive black rhinos and desert-adapted elephants you have the chance to track, there’s also other wildlife out there including plains game and predators such as cheetah, leopard and spotted and brown hyena. This is untouched wilderness and it’s a privilege to be a part of it.
The landscape ahead is a succession of rolling foothills and widespread plains and in the distance, the highest inselberg in the country, Brandberg Mountain. To say the view is spectacular is an understatement. You could come back here for any number of reasons, the excellent food, world-class service or even the amenities of your suite, but we know the landscape will be the one reason you’d return time and time again. A view that vast never gets old.
