Oropoko Lodge

Okahandja Area - Namibia



Oropoko Lodge was built in 1993 on a 11,000ha farm, and is one of the most beautiful lodges in Namibia. Only 130kms from Windhoek, it is an ideal staring point to several destinations, and can be reached by car, bus or light aircraft. As it has been sited on a hilltop, the panoramic views are amongst the most spectacular of any establishment in Namibia, all set amongst the natural beauty of the Khomas Hochland. 'Oropoko' is the Herero word for 'beautiful place between mountains'.

The main building and both the Panorama Restaurant and bar, has amazing views of the surrounding environment. Wining and dining here is very enjoyable indeed, as the waterhole is frequented by rhino, oryx, ostrich and a variety of other game species. The tree climbing dassies, (rock rabbits) add to the African experience. Apart from main meals, lunch packs can be ordered for those involved in full-day activities. There is also a reception, conference room, and a TV room.

The swimming pool is built around a massive granite rock, a perfect venue for a spot of sunbathing or an afternoon dip. The large Sun Terrace is a popular meeting place to enjoy a spectacular sunset, as well as being an excellent view point to photograph or watch the game roaming across the bush.

Accommodation is in rooms or suites. There are 4 completely separate rooms to 1 bungalow unit.

  • Rooms: Rooms are furnished with comfortable double beds, a seating corner, en-suite bathroom with shower, double bowl wash basin and separate toilet. They are all equipped with air-conditioning/heaters, a wall safe, telephone, kettle and a mini-bar.
  • Luxury suites: There are 3 suites all located within 1 bungalow. They are larger double rooms with facilities similar to the rooms.

Morning and evening game drives, as well as guided walks, allow a closer view of the animals. You are likely to see some of the lodges giraffe and the wonderful buttertree, which is common in this region. Often the game drives end on a hill some distance from the lodge, where inviting trays of drinks and snacks are awaiting.

There is a 2km long gravel runway, with transfers to and from the lodge for it's guests.
