Okahirongo Elephant Lodge & River Cam is situated in the Kunene Region, 55km from the coast and around 200km south of the Kunene River. The lodge itself stands on the banks of the ephemeral Hoarusib River, near the tiny town of Puros, in the Puros Conservancy. It is one of Namibia's most remote destinations and is a no-risk malaria destination. It can be reached in a 4x4 vehicle or on a 2hr15min flight from Windhoek. This is the place in the where desert elephants, black rhinos, giraffes and lions live in a desert environment!

The lodge has a spectacular wraparound view. Spend your days lazing around the pool, reading a book in the cool comfort of the library, relaxing in one of the 2 open air lounges, or having a body massage.

A domed entrance gives access to the open-air buildings, which are linked by wooden walkways, all joining onto a central area with a rustic deck and infinity pool.

The cottages are decorated in a rich and sensuous fusion of ochre, honey and sand colours, whilst each one has its own unique style and atmosphere. Ethnic and locally carved furnishing adds to the romance and excitement of the pervading African ambiance.

The lodge consists of 7 luxurious, en suite chalets, as well as a suite with two rooms and combined living area, all with stunning views.

The cuisine is a delicious fusion of Italian and African cooking. Dinner is served by candlelight in one of the two dining rooms or under starry Namibian skies in a traditional boma around a fire. Most of the fresh produce comes from the lodge's organic garden and everyday they bake fresh bread and muffins.


Omarunga Camp is situated on the banks of the Kunene river, only a short walk upstream from the spectacular Epupa Falls. Hidden in the shade of the exotic Makalani Omarunga Camp mappalmtrees, this little paradise is definitely one of Namibia's most secluded getaways. The lush vegetation along the majestic Kunene forms a sharp contrast with the surrounding Kaokoland.

Guests at Omarunga will be tempted to just relax and absorb the breathtaking scenery of the mountains on the Angolan side of the river and indulge themselves in the personal attention and European style hospitality of our managers, but there is a whole variety of activities awaiting them too! They can explore the spectrum of smaller waterfalls created by the approximate 800 meters wide river system. The more adventurous ones may want to cool off in one of the crocodile-safe pool just above the falls. In our off-road vehicle and in the accompaniment of our local translator, we offer excursions to the famous Himba who inhabit this area. Largely untouched by modern civilization the Ovahimba still live mach as they did centuries ago. We will take our guests to one of the typical small villages where they can experience the traditional way of the Himbas. They will get an inside view of how they herd and milk their cattle, build their houses and create their own jewellers. As Omarunga only caters for small groups a personal and undisturbed interaction with the Himba can be achieved.
