A little piece of heaven on earth. My family and I had the most incredible experience at Otjimbondona. The best of Namibia. Anita and her staff are the most gracious host. A must visit lodge for someone looking for luxury and hospitality at it’s best.

We just spent 5 nights at The Otjimbondona Kalahari Lodge and it was absolutely fantastic! From the beautiful accommodations to the outstanding food, the lodge exceeded all of our expectations! Anita, Wilfred and all thr staff were extremely knowledgeable every time we asked questions and always ready to feel us as at home. Really special people. We can’t speak highly enough about my experience there. We truly hope one day to return to your beautiful country and amazing lodge!

With all my travels I have 4 places in the world where I had this feeling that I belong there. Otjimbondona Kalahari is one of them. Space, beautiful views, nature, a park with animals where you can walk or take a game drive, stunning sunsets and sunrises, night skies full of stars, attention to detail, elegance and kindness. You really feel the time to stop at Otjimbondona. Namibia is big and so beautiful but sometimes you don't have to go very far to look for this beautiful African experience. I am so happy we've discovered Otjimbondona. It's a place on our "come back" list! Thank you so much Anita for this little paradise! Can't wait to be back.

Wow! What a beautiful and quiet place. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are large and luxurious. The view from our room was fantastic, with lots of wild animals. Our room had large windows, so we could enjoy the view, but still the room felt is very private. We really enjoyed this fantastic place. It was a memorable holiday.
