Otjiwa Safari Lodge is not known for it's campsite. But for the budget traveler or the weekend getaway, this is perfect. Campsites 1 - 3 have electricity and are very shaded. The sites are clean, well maintained with wood provided for the braai (boma). But this isn't what makes it so great. Whether you are a birder or not, you... More

We stayed at the camp site: the places are wide and looked after very well, but also fully equipped with private basin, braii, most of them with electricity and also pleasantly shaded. The rest rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. You can feel very closed to the nature and keep your comforts. The restaurant service is very nice and... More

I was disappointed by the accomodation. It was not value for money. The reception and restaurant look very nice, also beautiful allocated. However the diner buffet was not very good. We stayed at Eagles rest. The accomodation was very dark and had a strange smell. The bathroom is in need of an update. We could not shower all on the... More

After 12 days of camping, doing the Khaudum, and the Caprivi, we decided to end with a bit of luxury! Otjiwa Safari Lodge was it. The Lodge is veeeery nice, feels luxurious and not overdone. The rooms with it's quasy Modern Bush feel are awesome and right on a waterhole. All rooms are not the same, attention to detail is... More

What a pleasant experience to visit Otjiwa.. This is now luxury in the bush. The rooms were comfortable and luxurious with everything you need for a good nights rest. The lodge reception were very welcome and warm. The food was excellent.. As you enjoy a nice cold beer, you can enjoy wild animals feeding and drinking water very close at... More

We needed a stopover between Windhoek and Etosha National Park, and found this place advertised on the tourist map we had been given. Having camped for 5 nights in Etosha, we treated ourselves to a double room. It was stunning! Just beautiful! Every little detail was well thought through. There was tea and coffee in room (with rusks too!). The... More

We camped for just one night on our way to the north, but it was worth every cent. Staff is excellently trained and we received professional service overall. Camping was down to earth but very clean. We can definitely recommend the place.

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly, food was great and there was some great scenery on the game drive (would have been nice if the guides could give us a bit more information)...

It was pure bliss sitting on the stoep with a glass of chilled white wine while admiring the view near the dam and watching the animals graze nearby and the birds nesting in surrounding trees. Food for my soul!
