"Etosha Aoba Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 7 Nov 2010
"The facilities and accommodations are fine. Our complaint would be with management. Although we were greeted by the manager when we arrived, he spent the remainder of his time running back and forth between two groups of guests and at dinner, visited all the tables except ours.

We only spent one night there, so perhaps there was not a big incentive for him. Had we to do it again, we would spend at least another night (or more) in Etosha, probably at Namutoni." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"Lions, Snakes and Giraffes at Sunset"

2 nights Arrived 11 May 2010
"The best part of Etosha Aoba is the fact that it is in a private park that equals 1/3 the size of Etosha and as of January 2010 no hunting is allowed, which is probably why a big lioness just stood and watched us in our car from about 20 feet away.

We went on the sundowner drive with Sam and highly recommend it. The sunset view over Fischers Pan was quite spectacular, with giraffes chewing on bones and rubbing necks while we enjoyed a cold G+T.

Also be sure to have your camera or sound recording device with you at dinner as the ladies choral group sing a brief song each night in their native Damara language and they are wonderful." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia

"Basic, but comfortable, w/ good food"

1 night Arrived 2 Oct 2009
"After a long day driving thru Etosha, this lodge was a pleasant stop. It was a good place to stay after visiting the park all day, because it is fairly basic, and one did not feel that an earlier arrival would have been better, to allow time to enjoy the facilities (or view, of which there is none).

Dinner was very good." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana
