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.
A short drive south of Etosha National Park's Andersson Gate, the 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.
A cut above your 'usual' rustic safari lodge, Toshari Lodge offers a modern, yet simple and uncomplicated stay. The reception and main dining area, recently renovated, bring new life and a vibrant but relaxed atmosphere. 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. Simply laze at the pool, if you're not on safari in Etosha National Park that is.
26 standard rooms; 4 family rooms; 5 luxury rooms and 3 honeymoon suites.
All en-suite air-conditioned bungalows; open showers; bath (honeymoon suites only); safe; coffee & tea facilities; fridge (luxury & honeymoon suites only); restaurant; open-air firelit dinners; bar; lounge; swimming pool; lunch baskets
3 individual campsites with private ablutions and solar powered hot water; shade awning; electric lights; power outlets; braai facilities; wood for purchase - campsite guests can use lodge facilities and dine at the restaurant.
Game drives on the private nature reserve and into Etosha; excellent birdwatching especially during the summer migrations (on request only).
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.
