Etosha Aoba Lodge is the perfect lodge for a relaxing holiday. After a long day of game drives, relax with a meal under the stars or watch the animals quenching their thirst at the waterhole. The lodge is inside a 34000-hectare game reserve, the Onguma Reserve.

Etosha Aoba Lodge was built along the dry Omuramba Ovambo riverbed close to the thatch-roofed communal area. All bungalows feature a private terrace with seating, bathroom with a shower, mini-safe, bush mini bar, air-conditioning, ceiling fan and tea and coffee making facilities. There are also heaters available in winter.

You can relax next to the swimming pool or have a drink under the thatched roof of the bar. To watch the world go by, you can sit back in the lounge and dining area that overlooks the small waterhole. Come and enjoy the luxury comforts of Etosha Aoba Lodge and relax within the natural wilderness surrounding you.
