Eagle Tented Lodge and Spa
Ondundonzondandana Mountains, Epacha Private Game Reserve. Now there's an address that slides off the tongue and one we'd all love to have. At Eagle Tented Lodge and Spa, they won't force you to pronounce the name of those mountains but they will force you to relax, unwind and enjoy the wilderness of a 21,000-hectare private reserve adjacent to Etosha National Park.
Each of the sixteen tented suites is built on a raised deck with its own private baclony, mini bar and en suite bathroom. With at least 40 metres and a thicket of Acacias between you and your nearest neighbour, you might think you're the only guests.
The main lodge has turret-like archways that invite the cooling breeze and the spectacular view indoors; the pool is hewn out of natural rock - like the rest of the lodge - and is as inviting as a hot, buttered scone with cream and jam at teatime.
And you will eat. Meals are prepared with fresh, local ingredients and served in a variety of idyllic settings: in your private suite, in the semi-open dining room, outdoors beneath a clear Namibian sky.
8 standard tents (inside & outisde showers); 8 family tents (inside shower & outside bath); fan; mini bar; coffee/ tea facilities; two restaurants; main bar; pool bar; swimming pool; fully equipped wellness spa; airstrip; WiFi in main areas
Epacha Private game reserve bordering on Etosha National Park; game drives in Epacha and Etosha; night drives; guided walks; clay pigeon shooting
Game viewing tops the list of activities and you have the choice of staying in Epacha, which has 21 indigenous antelope including sable and the endangered black rhino, or visiting Etosha, which has all of Africa's famous game.
Making your way to Etosha, take a short route through the neighbouring reserve but keep in mind that you're still quite a distance from the park, calling for an early start.
