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 an old-school lodge in the middle of nowhere. This is rural Africa. Here the massive Waterberg Plateau looms. It's all red sandstone and brilliant, fiery rock formations.

Waterberg Plateau is not only rural it's pretty inaccessible too. So much so, that in the 1970s several of Namibia's endangered species were translocated here. The idea being to give them a fighting chance against both predators and poachers. The programme was a success and Waterberg ended up supplying other Namibian parks with rare species.

So Wabi Game Lodge is a special place, even if the décor is a bit dated. The now pristine nature reserve began life as a game farm in 1987 and continued up until 2007 when all hunting activities came to a complete stop.

There’s a lotta lush going on, both in the garden and surrounding area. Protected camel thorn trees and acacias. And lots of colour. Blue plumbago, fuchsia, hibiscus, laurel roses all grow in abundance. Nyala antelopes like to creep through the bush thickets along the river bed. At night, porcupine, springhare, genet cat and bush babies live in the garden.

Uncomplicated, it isn't a luxury stay but it's neat and tidy offering comfort, good food and an inviting swimming pool.

Facilities

Wabi Lodge has 8 air conditioned bungalows. These have en suite bathrooms. Both the food and decor reflect the Swiss heritage of owners, Mark and Christine; swimming pool; restaurant; waterholes

Activities

Explore.

Waterberg Plateau Park is ecologically diverse, rich and has over 200 bird species and some rare antelope species on the lower hills of the mountain. Birds which like it here, include hornbills, touracos, babblers and glossing starling.

Take a game drive. You could see hippo, sable, roan. Also look out for water buffalo, waterbuck, giraffe and zebra. If you’re really lucky you could see leopard, cheetah and brown hyena. Keep your eyes peeled later with a sundowner at Hippolake.

Or go on a hiking tour in the dry riverbed by the lodge or on and around the Waterberg Plateau. You could go on mountain drives too. This is an untouched wilderness. Have a mountain sundowner whilst you’re at it. The roads along the edge of the escarpment offer superb views of high, rocky peaks of red sandstone eroded into fantastic shapes and laced with the clinging vines of climbing figs. Listen to the eerie wail of the jackals.
