Nestled in green and gold Mopani forests, Etosha Village manages to combine affordability with comfort. Located on a private reserve, adjacent to Etosha, near Okaukuejo, this traditional tented safari camp effortlessly combines nature with the all the comfortable touches to enable you to enjoy your stay.
There are 40 canvas suites on raised wooden decks. Each has a fully air-conditioned bedroom with twin beds and a sleeper couch, and a semi-open en-suite bathroom. There is a private patio at the front allowing you to relax in relative privacy and enjoy the natural surroundings. (They are equipped for self-catering too!).
In addition to the comfortable accommodation, Etosha Village has a restaurant with a choice of three restaurant seating areas. Breakfast and dinner are served buffet style and lunch is à la carte. The popular bar serves ice cold drinks and is a great place to meet and chat with fellow travellers. The sparkling pool with separate kiddies pools is a star attraction in the heat of the afternoon.
Conscious of the limited natural resources in the area, Etosha Village works hard at water conservation and recycles water. They also have their own veggie garden supplying the restaurant with fresh produce. Most of the staff employed at Etosha Village are from the surrounding area.

A classic introduction to Nambia from beach to desert.
"Very much our personal opinion but having been spoilt up to now we found this place too big, and it was only a third full so would have been horrendous had there been more people staying. The room was fine, spacious and comfortable, but the food was disappointing - overcooked meat on the BBQ was like rubber - and not particularly enthusiastic staff, other than the girls on reception who were delightful. The guide who took us out on game drives morning and afternoon was fine in the morning but totally disinterested after lunch."
