Etosha Mountain Lodge
Etosha National Park

Located on the southwest border of Etosha National Park, the aptly-named Etosha Mountain Lodge sits within an exclusive game reserve - where time seems to stand still and the peaceful nature of Namibia’s wilderness is palpable.

This rustic yet comfortable property was the first to open in the area of Etosha Heights Private Reserve, and we’re happy to say that Natural Selection have beautifully captured the lodge’s history while renovating it recently. Many of its original features remain and the classically designed thatched chalets are luxurious yet understated, so as to not detract from the epic views.

All of the eight cosy chalets come complete with spacious bathrooms and outdoor decking areas, making them relaxing retreats to return to after a long day exploring outside – whether you want to simply take a rest on your comfortable bed, soak in your en-suite’s large bathtub or watch the sun go down on your own private balcony. A ninth chalet is designed especially for families in mind and even features its own plunge pool – a huge plus.

A larger swimming pool lies at the front of the lodge - we guarantee that you won’t be able to resist having a cooling dip at some point under the hot African sun here! – and a restaurant, bar and open fireplace can be found beyond. At the heart of the property, a communal Lapa area is surrounded by a wrap-around 360-degree balcony, providing guests with a brilliant vantage point from which to gaze out across the sprawling terrain to the horizon, and spot impressive game as they roam freely nearby. While the lodge is worth visiting in itself, it is these wildlife sightings that are the main draw here.

At first glance, you may be forgiven for thinking there isn’t much to see in this deserted landscape, however Etosha is renowned for its game viewing: during a safari, you're likely to see elephants roaming the land; lions, cheetahs and leopards lurking through the shadows after their pray; springboks hopping across the savannah and herds of antelopes wandering en masse.

We highly recommend having your camera at the ready for Etosha’s most elusive and majestic animal, the white rhino. These endangered giants dominate the region a, leaving unmistakable footprints in the dust as they travel between the private reserve and Etosha National Park. Tails flicking and ears twitching, trust us: they really are a sight to behold.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
