Okambara elephant lodge

Here you can witness a special experience.

On a 15.000 ha Game Lodge you can look forward to comfortable accommodation.  
You can either choose to stay in the big chalets with separate bathrooms or you can stay in the main house – all rooms with en-suite bathroom. Big recreation areas and an inviting pool are available. 

At OKAMBARA Elephant Lodge we keep elephants, rhinos, giraffes, hyenas, cheetahs, zebras, ostriches and lots of different types of antelopes. We offer our guests exclusive roundtrips, safaris to observe- and photograph game. 

You can choose between one of the 5 comfortable apartments in the main building, from one of the two typical rondavels (bungalows) or you can also stay in the Mountain House and enjoy the stunning view from its balcony.

The meals are served in the rustic styled living room during the rainy season and on cold winter days an open fire place warms up the big room. During summer the meals are served outside on the terrace which has direct access to the fire and braai (barbecue) area where local game meat is often prepared. From the terrace you can also enjoy the view on the water hole where different antelopes are common guests as well as porcupines.

The Main Building

Five big and comfortable apartments stand at your choice. Some of them are specially designed for families with two separate bedrooms. The others are spacious double rooms all furnished in typical Namibian style. All apartments have ensuite bathrooms.

The Rondavels
Rondavels are typically African bungalows with thatched roofs. The two rondavels at Okambara are equipped for two people and also have ensuite bathrooms. The bungalows are situated about 100 m from the main building.

The Mountain House
Above the pool lies the Mountain House with its fantastic view. The two rooms with a double bed each and ensuite bathrooms are connected by a spacious lounge. Together with the balcony and the small garden it ist the perfect place to relaxe.

The Pool
Close to the lodge hidden away in the vegetation lies our big pool. Especially during the hot summer it is a very popular place amongst our guests. This ist the place to be if you want to relaxe during the heat of the day!

And – the accommodation of our (big) cats:
Directly next to the lodge our leopard Lulu who was found abandoned as a cub has his big run. Also 7 Cheetahs have found their home at Okambara due to different reasons as well as two Caracals. Some of the Cheetahs for example come straight from the Cheetah Conservation Fund, others where saved from farms close by where they were supposed to be shot.
A special highlight is the daily feeding of these cats prior to the afternoon game drive. A once in a lifetime experience.
