Toshari Lodge

With more than just a little touch of wholesome, home-grown goodness, Toshari Lodge (previously known as Etosha Gateway Lodge) is the kind of place that can add 'Arrive a stranger, leave a friend' to their brochure without fear of being lynched by the anti-cliché mob.

Our rating: 3/5 Stars
Location: Etosha National Park, Namibia

Accommodation Description

Being just 30km south of Etosha National Park's Andersson Gate, Toshari Lodge is an excellent base for daily guided and self-guided forays into one of Africa's great parks. The 38 en suite bungalows are spacious, clean, comfortable and shaded by mopane and white seringa trees.

The grounds are well tended and the central open-air courtyard is the focal point of the swimming pool, bar and restaurant - three ingredients you can really sink your teeth into. Hammocks and locally produced benches and recliners are dotted around the pool, in case you miss the point of being there: to relax.

The lodge welcomes campers with a handful of sites, barbecue stands and ablution facilities. If you want to walk off breakfast or prepare for dinner, there are a couple of walking trails in an area that is home to many birds including some near endemics.


En-suite air-conditioned bungalows (22 standard, 13 luxury and 3 family units); open-air fireside dining; swimming pool; lunch baskets; camp site


Guided and self-drive game viewing in Etosha National Park; walking trails; excellent birdwatching especially during the summer migrations
