Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is located in the Purros Conservancy, 55km from the skeleton coast and around 200km south of the Kunene River in the north of Namibia. Often described as one of the last true wilderness areas, the Kaokoveld is home to the nomadic Himba tribe as well as uniquely desert adapted Elephant, lion, black rhino and giraffe.
The lodge, in the Purros Conservancy area, is a malaria free destination and can be reached by 4×4 vehicles or a 2 ½ hour flight from Windhoek in a small aircraft that sets down approximately 5 minutes from Okahirongo Elephant Lodge.
Okahirongo offers complete relaxation. Laze by the turquoise infinity pool, read in the cool comfort of the library or merely relax and savor the African chic in one of the open air lounges – all you could ask for in this spectacular setting.
At some point in the evening lit candles will lure you to the elegant dining table in one of the two airy dining rooms or the traditional ‘boma’ (African meeting place), where you will indulge in sumptuous Italian-Namibian fusion food.
