Over our two nights stay in Etosha Aoba Lodge at the end of November 2011, we received warm welcome and good service. It is set within a beautiful Tamboti forest. This means you are able to see many animals by the time you arrive there: giraffes, zebras, blue wildebeests, guinea fowl, jackals. We did not see any animals at the Lodge’s own small water hole/hideout, but there were many cute ground squirrels all day long. We purchased an excellent map of Etosha, that allows you to identify animals, at the reception for £4.50.
The Lodge shares entrance gate with Onguma and few other lodges and has its own clean water supply, so you can drink their tap water. Well spaced out bungalows offer sufficient privacy. We stayed in N9, the second furthest away from the reception/dining area, only few minutes walk to reach it. Dinner setting wass most beautiful, with a fire lit near by.
Great location to explore the East side of Etosha - we enormously enjoyed our self-drives. Comfortable bed, tea facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi connection without any passwords. No TV. A very basic outdoor shower. A socket adaptor provided sadly does not fit UK plugs. Mosquito nets are provided for all doors, windows and a bed but there were still just little too many creepy crawlies for my liking.
