Uukwaluudhi Safari Lodge

A setting of total tranquillity awaits the visitor, the main building and each of the 12 rooms that is strategically positioned on the hillside offer uninterrupted panoramic views over the large savannah plains, periodically dotted by antelope, zebra and giraffe that graze along the fringes of the surrounding Mopani and Terminalia woodland.

The lodge offers 12 luxury en-suite twin rooms. The thatched main building, with a modern African-chic interior offers a lounge, bar, restaurant and boast a large wooden deck and swimming pool with breath-taking views.

Named, after the Uukwaluudhi ethnic group meaning "small group of one clan" the lodge is situated on a small 6,000ha reserve in the Omusati region that forms part of the core wildlife area of the conservancy and is fenced in to protect its valuable endemic wildlife

Instead of walls around the main area the large thatch roof rests on sturdy timber pillars that allow for the open veranda-like atmosphere that accentuates the impressive panoramic vista from the hill it is built on. The view from the top of this outpost stretches across dense combretum or “Leadwood” and terminalia trees to the foot of the hill where the view continues across flats of semi-savannah and dry flood plains, occasionally dotted by grazing antelope and plains-zebra. The tranquility of the surrounding bush blends in perfectly with the ambience at dinner or while lingering around the bar in the company of other safari enthusiasts sharing their stories and travel experiences through Africa.
