Mount Etjo Safari Lodge

Mount Etjo Safari Lodge is a large game lodge in a private sanctuary half way between Windhoek and Etosha. The wildlife and birdlife are prolific and the variety of species both rare and common is excellent.

Mount Etjo Safari Lodge owes its abundant and varied wildlife to the passionate toil of the game sanctuary's creator, Jan Oelofse. Founded in 1975 with a handful of tents and about as much money, the Okanjati Game Sanctuary is now host to 300 species of bird and over 50 species of mammal and innumerable small animals.

Rooms are comfortable with en suite bathrooms, luxury versions have jacuzzis and they all have a view of a busy waterhole. The main lodge features a rustic lapa dining area where al fresco meals by the light of a campfire are a highlight. The food is uncomplicated with liberal use of the barbecue and no shortage of Namibia's excellent game meat.

Facilities

En suite bathrooms; jacuzzis in luxury rooms; swimming pool; bar; open-air dining; campfire; camping facilities

Activities

Game drives in open vehicles; game walks; visit to dinosaur footprints; special guided game drive to rare species sanctuary

The swimming pool and a large deck look out over the waterhole and the game viewing is excellent. Black and white rhino have been reintroduced and there are several rare species of mammal including Hartmann's mountain zebra, Damara dik-dik, black-faced impala, roan, sable, red lechwe and nyala. The sanctuary also has elephant, lion, leopard and cheetah.

Activities include game drives, game walks, nature trails, guided excursions to the game sanctuary and a walk to the fossilised dinosaur footprints, which are about 230m years old.
