Okahirongo Elephant Lodge

Eco-chic in the wilderness


Deep into the Kaokoland, surrounded by aeons of wilderness, the Okahirongo Elephant Lodge basks in its secluded eco-chic glory. Built from adobe and stained a deep ochre, the seven en suite rooms look out over the Hoarusib River. The bathrooms have enormous circular tubs with a view, a separate shower, and an outdoor shower; décor is a sumptuous combination of earthy tones, rich colours and North African cool. 

The living area has very few walls. Large landscape-shaped sides frame the spectacular view and everywhere you look, great attention has been given to the details. Collectable artworks add a subtle rhythm to the almost monochromatic earthiness and the mood is pure shoeless, flowing cotton escape. The private conservancy, dramatic in its scenery, supports a variety of specialised and highly evolved species of plants and animals to be discovered in between dreams and the slow drifting of time.

Okahirongo Elephant Lodge: Purros Conservancy

On your walking safaris and day and night drives, look out for the desert-adapted elephant, black rhino, desert lions, giraffe, the endemic Hartmann's mountain zebra, springbok, and the graceful gemsbok. Visit the nomadic Himba pastoralists of Purros and discover the ancient ways; birdwatching is excellent with several endemics and near-endemics in the area; and the Desert Lion Project is an eco-tourism venture aimed at preserving the unique habitat of the desert-adapted lion in the region.
