Accommodation at Okahirongo Elephant Lodge
Perched on a hill above the banks of the ephemeral Hoarusib River, Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is a refuge for all those seeking a break from boisterous cars, cell phones, buzzing air conditions and the hectic rush of urban life.
Possibly one of the most remote lodges in Namibia, if you make it here you will be rewarded with a genuine safari experience. Okahirongo Elephant Lodge fulfils the promise of absolute silence and complete privacy - at the same time dazzling your senses with its mix of stylish tranquillity and eccentric architecture, ultimate comfort and excellent service.
Laze by the turquoise infinity pool, read in the cool comfort of the library or merely relax and savor the African chic in one the open air lounges – this will most likely be all you could ask for in this spectacular setting.
At some point in the evening lit candles will lure you to the elegant dining table in one of the two airy dining rooms or the traditional ‘boma’ (African meeting place), where you will indulge in sumptuous Italian-Namibian fusion food, complemented by excellent South African wines. The menu changes daily, with many of the fresh ingredients grown on site.
Terracotta buildings are cleverly positioned to make the most of the grand views over the rugged Purros valley – blessed with its lush green river bed and purple mountains in the distance.
Each of the seven units looks out over the boundless wilderness and has been fitted with pure luxury: en suite bathrooms with an inviting bath tub and two showers, one of which is outdoors.
A private gazebo with day beds and cushions extends an open invitation for ‘chilling out’ in the shade, daydreaming or star watching. The décor is a rich combination of earthy tones, dark African wood and unrefined natural surfaces - textures reminiscent of the ragged edges found in the landscape.
