Nice Lodge, lovely people, we got off to a bad start by arriving in the dark due to Air Namibia delays, we phoned the lodge who omitted to tell us the road from the airport via the B1 was impassible due to floods unless you drove a serious 4WD, stuck in two drifts/rivers with fresh elephant tracks all around,, eventually...

This place now seems to be trying to attract the tour group market. It is in a beautiful setting with rolling lawns to a water hole or lake. There is a lovely pool and staff are very friendly. Evening meals are good with a starter, a barbeque buffet and desert. Highlight is viewing lion feeding in the evening. On the...

Mount Etjo Safari Lodge is an ideal place to start or finish your trip to Namibia if you want to end on a high note. If you are returning from Etosha it is a perfect distance between the Gates and Windhoek. The distance from the first class B1 road is only approx 40KM. The recent rainfall in the area meant...

After some years this was our second stay at Mount Etjo and again we were taken by the charms of this unique place and the very good service. . Unfortunately this time we came during rain season, which we would not recommend.. As we did not drive a 4x4 we had some difficulties to get there on the flooded roads...

Amazing wildlife combined with luxurious accomodation, exquisit food and breathtaking activities. The lodge was build by Jan Olofsen who trained and provided wild animals for the classic movie „Hatari“ starring John Wayne. The surroundings and the exceptional treatment by the staff still maintain the linger of Hollywoods great adventure in the ambiance of Mt. Etjo Safari Lodge. We have traveled...

Whether you want to photograph beautiful scenery or wildlife or experience fantastic hunting, this is the place to do it. Lots of wildlife including the big 5 with exception of Cape Buffalo. Wonderful Lion feeding viewing and even Cheetah feeds. The food and rooms are way above expectations. You will likely gain weight ! The staff are kind and thoughtful...

My wife, son and I spent one night here and were glad that it was only one because the restaurant where the buffet dinner is served is as hot as a sauna. It might even double as a sauna, I don't know. The breakfast was also substandard. WiFi is only available around the reception area. All of this is really...

I spent one night here on 29/12 on my way south. Its an old lodge, as observed from the style of the buildings, size of the various common areas and fittings in the rooms. Surprisingly, the lodge's wifi speed was fairly decent, but only available around the reception area and nearby rooms. Having arrived around midday, I signed up for...
