Otjiwa Lodge


Otjiwa’s vast 12,000 hectare expanse of bushveld conceals a treasure trove of African wildlife boasting some 25 free roaming game species, including one of the country’s largest herds of Sable Antelope and a number of precious White Rhinoceros, both of which offer guests excellent chances of outstanding sightings. Roan Antelope and big herds of plains game are also frequently spotted. Otjiwa is also renowned for its beautiful dams (artificial lakes) which are home to a rich variety of bird life, chief amongst which must be the majestic African Fish Eagle whose chilling shriek is often heard long before the bird is seen. This is the Otjiwa Experience where Tranquility meets Adventure, offering Romantic Sundowners, Walking Trails, Game Drives, Bird-watching, Rhino Tracking on foot and a multitude of other activities. At the end of the day, accommodation ranging from a luxury hide-away to campsites offers facilities for self-catering and the traditional braai, or the option of dining in style in a topflight restaurant, followed by the assurance of a good night’s rest – before tomorrow’s new adventures
