Okahirongo Elephant Lodge
Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is situated in one of Namibia’s most remote and untouched regions. The malaria-free Purros Conservancy is home to a number of desert-adapted game including elephant, black rhino, lion, giraffe, zebra and springbok all roaming freely in the wilderness. The lodge stands on the banks of the Hoarusib River and has seven lovely and well-designed chalets built from local stone. The chalets are cleverly decorated in warm, African colours and each have their own indoor and outdoor shower as well as a bath overlooking the beautiful surroundings. The large private verandahs are complete with queen-sized sun loungers for relaxing or for sleeping out under the stars. There is also a Presidential Suite with two double bedrooms and a separate sitting room.
The lodge has a swimming pool, two delightful lounge areas, a library and a traditional ‘boma’ with a log fire-place so that guests can choose whether to dine inside or al fresco.
There is a wide choice of activities available at Okahirongo including tracking the desert-adapted elephants and lions, daily scenic drives, bush walks along the Hoarusib River, trips to the salt water springs at Ogams or cultural visits to the nearby Himba Village.
