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.

Otjiwa Safari Lodge is a 30-minute drive from Otjiwarongo, less than an hour from Waterberg and close enough to Windhoek (on tarred roads) to make this your first or last destination in Namibia.

This game farm has numerous accommodation options:

At Eagle's Rest there are the family units and the elegant rooms.

The family units have two bedrooms, a kitchenette, a lounge, parking and since you probably want family time. It is also self-catering, which is ideal since we know that kids can be fussy eaters and mom knows best.

The elegant rooms, on the other hand, are not self-catering. You can lounge around on the private patio or in the room itself in front of the TV and air conditioning. If we're being honest, these rooms are more standard than they are elegant but offer the necessary comforts and some finer elements of luxury.

All the rooms come with access to a pool, WiFi (at the business centre) and the restaurant.

Large groups or families can stay at The Nest, a self-catering cottage with views over a floodlit waterhole. This house has 3 bedrooms, sleeping up to 12 people on beds and sleeper couches. The kitchen is big enough for everyone to feast, but dinner is best served with the view at the outside 'braai'. To keep yourself busy (and great for the kids) there is a small shaded pool for you to take advantage of.

Otjiwa Lodge is an oldie but a goodie. This is a place to just kick your feet up with a book and a drink or bond with your entourage by the pool while you enjoy a barbeque. The simple pleasures are all you really need here anyway.

For something more upmarket, you can stay at the Mountain Lodge - a more intimate and luxurious option with only 5 chalets, each with its own private patio and plunge pool.
