It has been called an oasis, set in one of Namibia’s most rugged and remote terrains. Overlooking the Kunene River and the deserts of Marienfluss, Okahirongo River Camp takes you to the edge of wild in ultimate comfort.

Property Details

In keeping with the remote location, Okahirongo River Camp is not built to be overrun with guests. With only four luxury tents and one family suite, the camp can accommodate up to 14 guests, an appropriate size to maintain the scale of the vast surrounds.

Each tent is constructed in the classic wood and canvas safari tent style, with both indoor and outdoor showers. The outdoor showers offer needed seclusion, but allow for a panoramic view for those who wish to feel essentially bonded with nature. The interiors are stylishly appointed with king size four-poster beds and minimalist décor to compliment the natural surrounds. Each tent also enjoys a view of the Kunene River from a spacious private deck.

The family suite combines two rooms in one, each with its own bathroom and deck. Children aged six and older are welcome at Okahirongo River Camp and are kept engaged with activities that reveal the wonders of Namibia’s “wild west” in interesting ways. A Namibia family safari with Ker & Downey means too that the skilled guides take extra care in tailoring activities and excursions to suit all members of the group.

Meals at Okahirongo continually astound, as the chef unveils course after course of gourmet creations locally sourced and prepared with his signature Italian technique. You’ll find it hard to believe you are in one of the world’s most far-flung reaches. Choose the scenery that most delights you, and that is where the staff will set your table. Commune with other guests, or a request a romantic table for two under the stars.

From the lodge, you are perfectly situated to explore the region by land, air, and water. Set off on a safari in a 4×4 vehicle or visit a nearby settlement of the Himba people where you can witness the traditional lifestyles still maintained today. The camp can arrange for an over-flight of the desert, or a fishing expedition down the Kunene. There’s even a driving range for those continuing on to the links of South Africa.
