Etosha Aoba Lodge
, is a stone`s-throw away from Etosha and located only 10 km east of Lindequist Gate - the eastern entrance gate to Etosha National Park. This tranquil retreat is located in a Tamboti - Terminalia forest next to a dry river bed.
The lodge is a comfortable base for embarking on half - or full-day self drive tours through one of Africa`s premier parks.
Experience true tranquility amid savanna bush veld and tall Tambotie trees, where birds, tree squirrels and bush-babies abound in the leafy canopies - or surrender yourself to the coolness of the sparkling pool.
The ten well-appointed thatched cottages offer such comforts as shower, ceiling fan and generous sized veranda.
Great emphasis is laid on excellent cuisine. Home grown and local produce provide fresh ingredients for a
variety of Euro-Namibian meals.
Anticipate friendly and personal service from the owners in a relaxed natural atmosphere under the large thatched roof of the main building.
The main building is the meeting point where the guests can chat with one another and the hosts, enjoy a drink, exchange tall stories or browse in the library and identify that elusive bird. A small pool with comfortable recliners and sun umbrellas invite you to relax and take a dip.

In the late afternoon join a small group on a "Sun downer" drive in an open Landrover. The drive offers game-viewing opportunities and reaches it's highlight at the edge of Fischer's Pan when drinks are served as the sun sets over the the endless plain.
There are several water holes to choose from:
- A high tower at Palm Springs waterhole with magnificent panorama views towards the Pan and Makalani Palms framing the view
- A small tree house at Leo's Drink with close surrounds of trees and bush
