Zannier's Omaanda Lodge is as close to perfection as it gets. The best lodge in Windhoek is easily in the running for Best Lodge in Namibia. That's pretty big talk and a hefty load to bear.
General Manager Steven Jacob and Chef Annelie Maes add a finesse to this lodge and if we're looking at standards and service, there's little left to desire with these two at the helm.
Previously running Zannier's Le Chalet in the French Alps, these two know what a great hotel is all about and the experience that is deserved. All that has changed is their climate and setting, for the rest they remain fantastic hosts to either the start or end of your Namibian holiday.
Situated just 30 minutes out of Windhoek and 20 minutes from the Windhoek International Airport, yet relaxing at the pool or post massage, with the savanna plains of the Khomas Hochland ahead of you, you'd never think you were even remotely close to either. So far removed as a destination on its own - not just for the property but for the offering by Zannier Hotels in all.

One of Windhoek’s most luxurious accommodation options, The Olive Exclusive is an all-suite boutique hotel that takes staying in the capital to a whole new level.
This was a "bucket list" trip for us. It could not have been better. HIGHLY recommend you ask for Bianca.
