Africa/Indian Ocean > Namibia > All Regions > Otjiwarongo

Sun-baked earth, an expanse of bush, the table-top mountain on the horizon… Nestled in the 76 square km Kambaku Wildlife Reserve, the Safari Lodge is to be found in the heart of Namibia, some 90km northeast of the town of Otjiwarongo.

This savannah habitat of trees and bush is home to numerous indigenous animals like giraffe, zebra, gnu, oryx, hartebeest, eland, warthog, impala, kudu as well as countless raptors and song birds. Also be on the lookout for vultures and ostriches, hyena and bat-eared foxes, aardvark, leopard and cheetah while enjoying a unique cross country ride through the bush.

If you are on the lookout for lions or rhinos we love to take you on a one, two or three day safari to the Etosha National Park. Cheetahs are best to be observed in the CCF, the worlds biggest Cheetah conservation station nearby the lodge.

If you are on horseback or on safari throughout Namibia, our experienced guides and game warden love to show you game and nature of their country.
