Frans Indongo Lodge is situated on a 170sq km private game reserve halfway between Windhoek and Etosha National Park in the Waterberg region of central Namibia. Oozing rustic charm and full of local flavour, with the lodge modelled after traditional Ovambo homesteads, your stay is sure to be authentically-inspired.
The waterhole, observable from the verandah at the bar and an observation tower, attracts some rare species of Namibian wildlife including black and white Rhino, Rüppell's parrot, and many bird species. Popular activities include walking trails culminating on a large hill with views across the reserve to the Waterberg Plateau, and trips to Otjiwarongo, the Waterberg Plateau Park, the OvaHerero Cultural Centre, the Rare and Endangered Species Trust, and the Cheetah Conservation Fund.
8 spacious, en-suite Chalets all feature air-conditioning and standard amenities and comprise building materials, furnishings and décor reflecting traditional Ovambo culture. The living area opens out onto the plains of the Waterberg and extends to an open-air deck perfect for summer evenings and dinner beneath the stars. An excellent stopover between Windhoek and Etosha National Park, guests are warned to take their time to fully enjoy the lodge.
