Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is located in the Purros Conservancy, 55km from the skeleton coast and around 200km south of the Kunene River in the north of Namibia. Often described as one of the last true wilderness areas, the Kaokoveld is home to the nomadic Himba tribe as well as uniquely desert adapted Elephant, lion, black rhino and giraffe. Perched on a hill above the banks of the ephemeral Hoarusib River, Lodge is a refuge for all those seeking a break from boisterous cars, cell phones, buzzing air conditions and the hectic rush of urban life. Possibly one of the most remote lodges in Namibia, if you make it here you will be rewarded with a genuine safari experience. The Lodge fulfils the promise of absolute silence and complete privacy - at the same time dazzling your senses with its mix of stylish tranquillity and eccentric architecture, ultimate comfort and excellent service.
Each of the seven units looks out over the boundless wilderness and has been fitted with pure luxury: en suite bathrooms with an inviting bath tub and two showers, one of which is outdoors. A private gazebo with day beds and cushions extends an open invitation for ‘chilling out’ in the shade, daydreaming or star watching. The décor is a rich combination of earthy tones, dark African wood and unrefined natural surfaces - textures reminiscent of the ragged edges found in the landscape.
Two airy dining rooms or the traditional ‘boma’ (African meeting place), where you will indulge in sumptuous Italian-Namibian fusion food, complemented by excellent South African wines. The menu changes daily, with many of the fresh ingredients grown on site.
The lodge has a spectacular wraparound view. Spend your days lazing around the pool, reading a book in the cool comfort of the library, relaxing in one of the 2 open air lounges, or having a body massage.
