One of Namibia’s most remote lodges, Okahirongo Elephant Lodge promises a wilderness safari experience like no other.
Each of the seven terra cotta suites overlooks the surrounding wilderness offering picturesque views of the rugged Purros valley, lush riverbed, and distant mountains. Earth-toned décor, dark African wood, and rough, natural surfaces echo the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Each room boasts a private lounge with a cozy daybed. A luxurious en-suite bathroom includes indoor and outdoor showers and an inviting bathtub with a view of the valley. The Presidential Suite is a sumptuous private villa with two luxury bedrooms featuring a scenic entrance, an extended lounge area with an external veranda and two gazebos, day beds, and cushions for a lazy afternoon or a star-gazing night.
Located in the Purros Conservancy just thirty-five miles from the Skeleton Coast, the lodge can only be accessed via 4×4 vehicle or small aircraft. A nearby landing strip is only five minutes away. Also known as the Kaokoveld, this area is home to the nomadic Himba tribe as well as a variety of uniquely adapted wildlife. Desert elephant, lion, black rhino, and giraffe are frequently sighted. Other wildlife species flourish in the Purros Valley, including gemsbok, springbok, and ostrich.
