Mopane Village Etosha
Lodges near Etosha National Park
Mopane Village Etosha is situated only 14kms from Etosha National Park's western gate. This region is dominated by mopane woodland, hence the name. It is an ideal destination for self-drive tourists in Etosha, families or small groups who wish to overnight outside, but close to Namibia's number one tourist destination. Exploration of Etosha on a daily basis is also an option. The drive south to Outjo and Otjiwarongo is a relatively short one from here, as is Waterberg Plateau Park.
As the year progresses and the rains cease wildlife is drawn towards Etosha Pan. But as the pan itself dries it becomes extremely salty, so predators and mammals move on to the park's waterholes. Large herds of elephant congregate to drink whilst plains game inch their way forward. Predators and in particular lion will be waiting patiently to pounce. Superb Namibian wildlife interaction is never far away.
Facilities in the main building include a reception/bar, guest lounge and Wi-fi. The restaurant serves a buffet breakfast with lunch and dinner either a set menu or buffet. Weather permitting the evening meal is served outside 'under the stars'. After a long day's journey or safari guests can relax and unwind around the pool.
Nightcaps can be enjoyed around the camp fire in the company of other of Mopane Village Etosha's guests, an ideal opportunity to catch up on the day's wildlife action. Electricity and hot water throughout the lodge is provided from solar panel and African donkey heating systems.
Accommodation at Mopane Village Etosha have been sited to allow for maximum privacy. Each canvas and wood unit is equipped with 2 twin beds, en-suit bathrooms, (water) cooling system, mosquito nets and a tea/coffee station.
