Etosha Oberland Lodge: Our full report

Just 12 kilometres from Etosha National Park's southern entrance gate, Etosha Oberland Lodge promises comfortable ...

... accommodation within touching distance of Namibia's premier wildlife destination. Opened in early 2020 we look forward to visiting this new property.

The same team runs Etosha Oberland Lodge as Desert Homestead Outpost, Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge and Ti Melen amoung others. As such, while we have not yet visited Etosha Oberland, we are confident that it will follow the same pattern of high-quality accommodation we have experienced at its sister properties. Here is what we know about the lodge so far.

The lodge has 18 chalets, positioned apart to ensure privacy. Each chalet overlooks the bush and has a private deck complete with deck chairs to enjoy the view. Each room has air conditioning, an indoor and outdoor walk-in shower, a mini-fridge, a hairdryer and tea/coffee station. Mosquito nets curtain the twin beds. There are three family chalets with an additional children’s bedroom.

Paved walkways link the rooms and the main area.

The main building houses a reception area, a restaurant and bar, a guest lounge with fireplace, a pool situated on the terrace, as well as a viewing deck from where one can view wildlife. Meals are served in the restaurant or garden weather dependent.

Activities focus on guided safaris into Etosha, however being so close to the park it will be straightforward for self-drive guests to explore the park in their hire vehicle.


Our view

No one from Expert Africa has visited Etosha Oberland Lodge yet. However, we expect it is a comfortable, mid-range base from which to explore the southern Etosha and its fantastic wildlife. We look forward to experiencing it ourselves soon.
