"Etosha Oberland Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 19 May 2023
"A very pretty setting. Sitting watching the waterhole with a gin and tonic at sunset will stay in our memory.

The food was exceptional here and served in the prettiest of spots.

Our lodge was nice and close to the main building and was very comfortable and beautifully furnished.

A 10 minute drive got us into Etosha National Park - so its location was ideal." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Etosha Oberland Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 21 Apr 2023
"This is such a luxurious Lodge and is in a perfect location so close to the Andersson Gate entrance to Etosha.

The rooms are massive and have a beautiful deck with chairs and sun loungers so we did have a couple of hours relaxing on there looking out over the private reserve, watching springbok and steenboks mainly. We did an all day trip into Etosha with the Lodge which was good but, to be honest, it is so easy to drive yourself around (there is no off road driving) that it felt like the activity was more of a local taxi service between water holes. That said, we did get to see a heard of about 40 elephants having fun at a waterhole (Aus) as well as a pride of lions just lying on the open space along the main road between the Gate and the payment point at Okaukuejo.

However, we also saw loads of animals when we were driving ourselves the day before and the day after (including a rhino along that same main road, so don't forget to keep your eyes peeled along there, it's easy to forget that you're in the park once you drive through Andersson Gate and before you've paid!)."

"Beautiful, spacious tents which did get very hot.

Ask for a second key to leave the air conditioning running when you go out or you come back to a sauna! Lovely water hole by the restaurant.

Big site so you can be quite a long way from the swimming pool and restaurant." See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia

"Etosha Oberland Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 2 Feb 2023
"Very much a 'bling' camp: everything built with a view to impress. So, huge, beautifully presented room.

Public rooms spacious, strong design dimension - everything thought through to impress - and it did.

Walk with Herman in morning was excellent. Food very good.

Sitting watching rhino at the waterhole while we ate was memorable.

One downside - wi-fi no good, even causing problems with everyone's payments.

Good wi-fi just up the road at Etosha." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Etosha Oberland Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 29 Mar 2022
"This was a beautiful lodge with extremely friendly staff. The lodge is pretty new and had beautiful rooms, with lovely views.

A swimming pool you could swim which was chilly but not too cold. The location to the park meant it was easy to self drive into Etosha. We had a lovely sighting at the waterhole which was great for this time of year. We were able to watch Impala out of our bedroom window.

The food was 5 star!" See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
