Okahirongo Elephant Lodge

View my wish list

Traditional living and absolute relaxation in the desert of Namibia

Kaokoland, in the remote northwestern reaches of Namibia, is home to an exceptional lodge that shares this untouched wilderness with desert adapted elephant, lion, giraffe and black rhino.

Designed in harmony with the region’s landscapes and traditions, and built using fallen trees and locally-sourced natural materials, the Elephant Lodge perches on a hill overlooking the Hoarusib River, far removed from any signs of modern life. Decorated in earthy ochre and sand tones, with ethnic fabrics and sculptured furnishings, it is authentically, captivatingly African.

Despite the apparent emptiness of the landscape, there is no shortage of things to do here: head out on day and night game drives, hike through the river valley, explore the salt water springs at Ogams and meet the semi-nomadic Himba people. Back at camp, cool off in the the turquoise pool, relax in the open air lounges and feast on excellent Namibian/Italian fusion cuisine under a star-studded sky.
