Frans Indongo Lodge
Otjiwarongo0:30 from Otjiwarongo
Is your heart yearning for Africa? For the savannah and the scent of grasses and acacias? For silence and wide horizons? And at the same time you want to enjoy all modern comforts? Then Frans Indongo Lodge warmly welcomes you.
You can truly relax with us. Let us pamper you - after all, you are on holiday. Relax on the sundeck at the swimming pool and watch a succession of Sable Antelope, Black Springbok and Nyala quench their thirst at the nearby water hole. Relish the special African atmosphere: the lodge and the interior decoration feature stylish traditional elements from the Ovambo culture in northern Namibia - the birthplace of Frans Indongo.
You can't afford to miss this! Watch Cheetah sprinting and learn more about the fastest terrestrial animal on the planet at the nearby Cheetah Conservation Fund. Or explore Waterberg Plateau Park, where water is plentiful, and visit the OvaHerero cultural centre in Okakarara.
While staying with us you will also experience purest nature, of course. The 170 km² farm boasts an extraordinary abundance of game, including White and Black Rhino, Black Wildebeest and Hartebeest. We take you game-viewing on sundowner drives. For active holidaymakers we have laid out trails which meander through the bush savannah and lead onto a hill with a magnificent look-out point.
We are right on your way. Frans Indongo Lodge is located north-east of Otjiwarongo and north-west of Waterberg Mountain. Thus it is ideally suited as a stop-over on your way from Windhoek to Etosha, the far north, to Bushmanland or the Caprivi. We are close to the tar road but nevertheless in the midst of the African bush savannah.
One little hint: take your time. Our guests keep complaining that they would have liked to stay longer...
