Various rivers meander through this landscape, which is flanked by trees.
The play of colours of the mountains, the "steppe" landscape and the dunes enchants you from sunrise to sunset. Therefore we strongly recommend to take part in the "Sunrise Dune Drive" and the "Sunset Tiras Mountain Drive".

This 5 star lodge is an ideal starting point to experience the "Big Five" in the Okawango Delta as well as many other animals in the lush landscape of the delta. The delta is mostly protected in terms of nature so you have the possibility to discover the "real" Africa. This fertile delta stands in attractive contrast to the desert landscape in the south of Namibia.
The game drives are undertaken both on land and on water, depending on the seasonal possibilities for trips on the water.
One of the highlights is also the cooperation of the lodge with the "Living with Elephants Foundation". You will get very close to these sensitive animals and will be thrilled by the grace and intelligence of the elephants (this activity is not included in the price and will be billed to you directly on site).
