Having been closed for a number of years, Hobatere Lodge opened it's doors again in 2015. It is owned by the #Khoadi //Hoas Conservancy and is managed by the same people that manage Grootberg Lodge and Fish River Lodge. We have high hopes for its re-emergance and so far it is proving to be a great success.

Between Damaraland and Etosha, Hobatere has comfortable cottages, plenty of space and a pool to relax by. Its environment and game densities are similar to Etosha, and here professional guides lead walking safaris and drives (day and night). Hobatere is slightly off the obvious route, but is worth the effort to reach it.

Two of our team have very recently stayed at Hobatere Lodge and are due to update this page shortly, however in the mean time please do call us for the latest news.
