One of the most striking things about the Okahirongo Elephant Lodge are the views you get from every angle that you sit, stand or lie. Even from your bathtub you get scenes of the Hoarusib River below, the jagged outlines of the Purros Valley mountains in the distance sometimes accompanied by the remote roar of desert lion.

Ethnically-styled, its terracotta buildings blend in well with the valley’s copper backdrop and the refreshing turquoise infinity pool is the only obvious sign of civilisation in a large radius. The feeling of being completely in the wild is tangible to say the least. Each of the rooms fall into line with the earthy décor of the entire lodge, with very comfortable beds, an en suite bathroom with a bath tub and indoor and outdoor showers.

Based in then Purros Conservancy you are in for a truly unique safari experience that only Namibia can offer in the form of desert Elephants, giraffe, lion and black rhino. Spend your days on game drives or perhaps take a flying safari over the Skeleton Coast.

Dine all the atmospheric delight that a lodge as remote this can deliver, whilst feasting on Italian-Namibian cuisine and under the light of the stars.
