The Gondwana Etosha Lodges, which nestle between Outjo and Okaukuejo near the Etosha National Park in Namibia, consist of two accommodation options, namely the Etosha Safari Lodge and the Etosha Safari Camp. The Andersson Gate into the Etosha National Park is only 10 km away from these lodges.
The Safari Camp offers 50 twin bedded chalets which have been set up among the mopane trees providing the unique feeling of being in the heart of the African nature. Each of the chalets is equipped with mosquito nets, private bathrooms as well as small verandas.
Resident guests have access to the camp's outdoor swimming pool which invites for a relaxing and refreshing swim. The camp offers a restaurant where meals are served throughout the day.
Facilities and services:

The Etosha Safari Camp offers the perfect base for safari excursions into the famous Etosha National Park, either accompanied by an experienced guide on the daily safari drives or in one's own car.
The 22,700 km² Etosha National Park in Namibia is home to more than 110 different species of mammals and more than 230 bird species. This national park received its name from the large salt pan of a dried up lake, the word 'Etosha' meaning 'large white place'. Having been established in 1907, Namibia's Etosha National Park is one of the oldest conservation areas in Africa.
The pan in the park is a large dusty depression of dusty clay and salt which fills only if the rains are heavy and even then only holds water for a short time. This water source in the Etosha Pan attracts many wading birds such as the impressive flocks of flamingos which are magnificent to observe. The perennial springs which can be found along the edges of the Etosha Pan attract large concentrations of birds and wildlife.
The wildlife viewing experiences in Namibia's Etosha National Park is fantastic, the best time of the year for safaris being from May to September, which are the cooler months. Visitors can expect to encounter many buck species, giraffe, elephant, lions and rhinos. The more fortunate safari travellers have the rare opportunity to witness the leopard and cheetah in their natural habitat.
