We have enjoyed going to game lodges for day visits. This was a peaceful place and we did have a pleasant afternoon. The lodge is very interesting and we can sit and drink our coffee while enjoying the view.
The wait staff is the problem. They are slow to help, act angry at you for ordering, and think that yelling at customers and other staff is appropriate. This was our only problem with this lodge. They really didn't act like they know what to do and how to do it. Whether or not we were day visitors, we still had money to spend.
The dinner we had was very good. The food was great and the dinner staff was much nicer and treated us very well.
We also did the game drive. Very interesting and informative. Definitely recommended.
We will wait for a while before going back. Hopefully they will either get decent wait staff or they will train the ones they have now.

Excellent lodge!! It was part of our day tour... had lunch there ... superb food and great service. Wide spread buffet of local and western cuisine. Wine was fantastic. Took the tour of the ranch which was mind blowing. It was open safari and the guide was fantastic with very good knowledge. Was able to learn some interesting facts about giraffes and other animals. One of the Must visit places.

Had a year en function there, was so relaxing. Frits made our game drive fun and interesting, learned some new stuff that I did not know. Although it is very dry, Okapuka still takes care of the animals.We had a great laugh wile the ostriches chased the warthogs around.

This place was one of the best childhood memories I kept dear to me up until this past weekend during a day visit. My family and I were treated with such hostility from the entrance up until the restaurant/bar area, we had to ask to be serviced/or assisted just to be seated, after 3 waiters walked by us and ignored us standing and looking lost. And the front desk lady seemed irritated when we asked questions for clarity purposes, even went as far as slightly raising her voice at us on top of not allowing us to finish our sentences as we tried to ask questions.
The only factor that made us stay was the fact that we were hungry and opted to have lunch then drive back to Windhoek immediately and not proceed to lounge by the pool area with our kiddies. We decided to swim at home rather.
Needless to say, I do not think my family and I will be returning soon, if ever.😢
And they continued to delete my comment on their Facebook page.

I am writing this review as I am sitting here waiting on our waitress to come get our order. We called before hand to make sure the place was not fully booked and we were advised it was not. When we arrived we were ushered to a make shift table because it was the only available place. Then we have had to wait for more than 30 minutes for our drinks order (yes they have no drinks menu). Now we are waiting for our meal order to be taken. Oh wait we have decided just to leave. No place is worth waiting an hour for especially if the service is under par and the people don't seem to care. Y'all need to do better!!

The managers at Okapuka Ranch are racist and totally unwelcoming. If you are non-white, stay away from Okapuka Ranch.

I usually don’t write such kind of reviews

It was very evident if you are not white you get a second rate treatment especially during the drive around the Ranch. That’s all I have to say!

Booked Into this so called 3 star lodge ... They are worth there 3 star or should be demoted to 1 star. Service is non existent at this lodge. You ask for towels for your room-you have to fetch it yourself from front desk. You ask for a spoon at breakfast you are told by the waiter to fetch it yourself.talking about breakfast when you walk in they don't take your room number . You don't get greeted . You don't get told where to sit. It is undeniable that the view is tranquil but having cleaning staff sweep dust on you while you having breakfast is unacceptable really. If you want value for money do not book at this ranch .

We went for an afternoon game drive for 1.5 hours.
Animals get very close to the vehicles, the rhinos are amazing.
Great for an afternoon and only 30 mins outside Windhoek .
Our guide was very knowledgeable, they also have Sable antelope, which we've not seen before.

I have been to Okapuka many times, but on the ride only once. It was a very good drive. Since then, I have been able to bring friends and family when they visit. Even on "slow" days, a lot is going on, and on days where there is a lot of activity, it is amazing. This is not Etosha, but for a 90 minute drive it can be amazing and more than more the trip.
