Safarihoek Lodge

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.

When we say close to Etosha, it is in fact 120 km drive from the southern entrance gate into the park, far enough at least ,that we would rather sell this as a destination on its own and rightly so, since wildlife is numerous and in abundance. All that's missing is the pan.

It's worth noting that the drive to get there takes you through some cattle farms and farm gates. Look out for signboards saying Etosha Heights to find the lodge as per it's previous name.

Spacious thatched chalets with a modern interior - you’ll find eleven here, each named after a local tree. Presumably as in species rather than moniker. One family chalet, 8 luxury and 2 classic (wheelchair friendly). Private balcony, ensuite bathroom with indoor shower - you’ll find the ever popular outdoor shower in the luxury chalets. There’s also a small work desk area.

They say there’s no better place to photograph than Iceland but the vantages you get from Safarihoek might nudge the mighty Viking off your screensaver. This photographic hide takes the biscuit. It’s built on 2 levels giving you different views of a large, natural waterhole. Lower ground offers an eye level view of the animals, wander upstairs and you’ll have daybeds, a fridge and a designated photographer’s ledge. Designed by a Namibian wildlife photographer there are charging stations with international adapters, areas to store your camera gear and camera supports. Enough said.
