Giraffes in your backyard!

Very convenient to the park entrance. Nice rooms and good service. Buffet meals were also very good.

Was surprised to see giraffes from our balcony.

New garage and convenience store with lovely gift shop situated between the lodge and park gate.

The self drive safari was fabulous.

An excellent convenient lodge

This was the largest of the lodges we stayed at with 65 attractive bungalows set out in lines running from the reception, restaurant area and viewing deck. A modest disadvantage was that, at bungalow 64 it took us 10 minutes to walk to the bar!

On the other hand the western swimming pool was quite close and much enjoyed. The meals were good and eating outside a treat. This was where we contacted Bidvest re the car's fuel problem and the reception stall were extremely helpful. They also got us on an early morning tour of the park itself which we thought well worthwhile as it helped us to see more when we went in the next day ourselves. We stayed 2 nights.

This is an excellent and convenient lodge.

Etosha Safari Lodge review

We really loved this place. We had a chalet near the main building - No4, so just a very short walk to the restaurant, bar and lovely swimming pool. Good that we could park nearly outside our room too.

The views across the 'veldt' were wonderful. The staff were really friendly and we had some great conversations - mainly about football! The food was great and it was good to have an allocated table outside.

The room was lovely with AC and mosquito net, bright and well furnitured, with a great shower and separate toilet.

Etosha Safari Lodge review

We enjoyed our one night here although the scale of the place was so much bigger than the previous places we had stayed and it had more of a hotel feel than lodge.

The individual room was nice with a good spacious shower area. The food was pretty good. The viewing deck outside the bar area was a good feature and a lovely place for a sundowner.

Overall we were happy with this lodge but were also happy to move on after the one night. Having said that it would make a good base from which to see Etosha if you were not staying inside Etosha itself.

A room with a view

Our first time here and could not find fault with the place at all
As with all the places we stayed we spent very little time in them
we were in the park all day but the food, rooms and service were all spot on would go back at drop of a hat

I think we were all a little disappointed to be staying outside of the National Park but the location of this site was an ideal second best. On arrival all was well but when we got to the one chalet we had been sent to there were on four beds in one shared open space with an open bathroom. I returned to reception where the staff said they would put in an extra bed into this one chalet. This was at best going to be quite a squeeze with little privacy for all concerned.

On taking this back to the staff they finally agreed that the booking had been for two chalets and all was fine after that. The pool was wonderful with amazing views, the restaurant excellent, great food and location. Parking in front of the chalet was a little rough with loose stones making it difficult to get the minibus in as it skidded on the stones

Etosha Safari Lodge review

A truly wonderful setting close to Etosha. The rooms however were distinctly average, with just one dispenser marked 'shampoo' (we were told it was shower gel) in the rather over-sized shower-room.

Food and service was slightly impersonal as this establishment clearly caters for large groups.

However as a one-night stop-over this place was absolutely fine.
