Situated between Damaraland and the great Etosha National Park, but somewhat off the obvious route, Hobatere Lodge was re-opened under community ownership in April 2015, having been closed for some years. The lodge is set on its own 8,800 hectare concession, a short distance from the Galton Gate into the west of the park, and offers game drives in both areas.
Our view of Hobatere Lodge
Hobatere may be slightly off the main tourist route, but it is well worth the effort to reach it, and we really enjoyed our stay here in November 2015. Accommodation is comfortable, and there’s plenty of space, with a pool to relax by. Although game on the reserve was quite sparse, we understand that this was due to poaching while the lodge was uninhabited. However with the lodge now fully operational, and with a focus on conservation, we anticipate that Hobatere will in time revert to its original good reputation as a safari destination.
