Etosha Aoba Lodge
is located on the Onguma Private Game Reserve that was officially declared a Private Nature Reserve in May 1998. At that time, all the internal fences which were necessary to demarcate grazing for cattle farming were removed around the Etosha Aoba Lodge area. Subsequently additional areas were also opened up, allowing animals freedom to roam the 34 000 ha Reserve.
The common boundary with the Etosha National Park makes this location very special.
The lodge is an intimate and tranquil bush experience. The thatched roof bungalows blend into the dappled surrounds and offer a unique blend of luxury accommodation and privacy.
A maximum of 29 guests can be accommodated in the 4 Heritage bungalows, 3 Bush suites and 3 Luxury Explorer bungalows and 1 Honeymoon Suite, from where you have an unforgettable view of the Namibian bush.
The lodge has a lapa with restaurant and bar, swimming pool and offers a wide range of activities.
Facilities at Etosha Aoba Lodge include:
- 10 thatched cottages with en-suite facilities
- Restaurant & Bar

Etosha Aoba Lodge activities:
There are 3 easy walks which can be walked at leisure and give an introduction to the botany of the area.
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
- A thatched hide at Vulture`s Rest in a bush environment. One can be driven to each of these hides and dropped off with a cool box for several hours.
- A further hide is just a 10 minute walk from the Lodge.
The bird watching opportunities at the Etosha Aoba Lodge are excellent.
The entrance to the Etosha National Park is only 20km away. Spend the day touring the various waterholes in the Park and discover the animal kingdom of Namibia.
