Tripadvisor Reviews

More than a wonderful stay and Highly recommend the Ohorongo experience! An experience which was one certainly one of kind and more than wonderful! A hidden jewel in Damaraland. Not only the place is appeasing and very well managed and well maintained, but the personnel and service was just amazing! At the time of our stay we were the only family staying and the staff was just as professional as it can be. The guided tours were very interesting and made us feel like 3 days were not enough. The guides had plenty of facts to tell us about the place, the fauna/flora but also we shared a lot about our respective culture during the safaris and around the fireplace late in the evening. A wonderful human experience in addition to the rest. My recommendation would definitely be to go experience the Ohorongo experience for at least 2 nights! Moreover, all informations about the place, how to access there are very well described on the website, no surprises, just even better in person!Thank you again to all the team for this wonderful and warm welcome! See you definitely next time

Amazing nature, Incredible people Staying at Ohorongo Safari Lodges was our best choice in Namibia.Our family trip concerned 12 people from the grandparents ( 80 year old ) to a young a baby ( 1 year old ) and several kids. Ohorongo was able to satisfy and delight us all.Imagine waking up to the wild life : a quick, hot shower and a wake me up breakfast before heading out to watch the rising sun awaken this iconic reserve into a gold and purple kaleidoscope. Watching the rays of the sun pierce through the morning sight : this is another beautiful day on safari and, in more ways than one :1) The lodgeThe luxury suites combine an authentic bush experience with all the contemporary amenities and are nothing but comfortable. The eco friendly lodge runs on green energy, and we will have all we need and more ( hairdryers, etc…). the epic view from the fireplace and the terrasse allows to watch giraffes, zebras, oryxs, springboks coming to drink in front of you .We were amazed by the quality of the cuisine/cooking. Really exceptional compared to other luxury lodges. And it matters to French people ????2) Epic wildlife encountersThe Ohorongo property is huge ( more than 40000 hectares ), and we feld to be totally alone in the Nature which is uncomparable to other safari places. The children and the adults were able to enjoy spectacular wildlife : zebras, giraffes, elands, kudus, roans, sables, oryxs, baboons, squirrels, wild cats, red rock rabbit, hare, fox, black backed jackals, mongooses, black wildebeests, blue wildebeests, springboks, damara dik diks, steenbcks, bustards,etc…We saw tracks of the rhinos and the leopards too. Each day of the week we saw new species.3) Incredible peopleOhorongo is a celebration of the best of Namibia’s people – warm hospitality, agility, resilience and tenacity. Thorsten, his guides and his team are incredibly passionate custodians of the natural world. Each and every person of the staff has a beautiful story.The site also has secrets from the past : prehistorical carvings from the bush men, stone wells from the 19th century European pioneers, and more. Several wonderful spots to see the sunsets, but be careful there on the rhino territories ????
Somptueux Incroyable lodge, avec un personnel très attachant et à l'écoute. L'environnement est magnifique. Les tentes sont luxueuses et la décoration est très soignée. Tout était absolument parfait pendant notre séjour. Notre seul regret : n'y avoir passé qu'une seule nuit.
Höhepunkt unserer Namibia-Reise Unser Aufenthalt in der Ohorongo Safaris Lodge war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis.Die Zimmer, die Lage, der Service, das Essen waren einfach sehr sehr gut.Alles übertroffen haben aber die Gamedrives und die Abende am Lagerfeuer. Der Tour Guide Daniel ist eine excellente Quelle für Informationen über Tiere. Land und Leute.Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Vielen Dank dafür!

Great experience We had a wonderful time at Ohorongo lodge. The lodge is very nice and confortable, food is superb, the rooms are huge and you feel in very close contact with nature, because you are indeed! The lodge is surrounded by an extensive reserve with lots of wildlife. Daniel took us on a day drive around the place, we loved it in every way! It was super fun to ride the safari car, and company was unforgettable. The next day we had a little accident with our car while driving out of their place, and the Ohorongo team took exceptional care of us until the tow came to pick us and the car up. Not only they tried to fix the problem, they stayed with us and gave us food and drinks, and made us feel like we are family to them. I do not have enough words to thank them, especially Daniel who spent all that time with us:-)
Unforgettable experience We visited during the corona crisis and experienced a welcome and stay unlike any we have ever experienced before. A royal welcome, where the staff was waiting when we arrived and treated us to delicious refreshments. The lodge itself is very spacious and well decorated.We went on a nature drive and our attendant explained how the game farm survived the draught, and the behaviourism all the animals we were seeing. When arriving back at our lodge we were again greeted by the staff and our dinner was ready once we were refreshed from the trip. The dinner itself wouldn't be misplaced in a Michelin star restaurant and we amazed it was possible in such a remote area!All in all highly recommended to go to this lodge if you can incorporate it in your trip. It will be one of the highlights of your holiday.
Exceptional Lodge in the Bush close to Etosha NP Ohorongo Safaris provides a remote and authentic adventure in the Namibian bush. You can choose between a lodge with all luxurious amenities or an even more remote tented camp nestled between granite boulders. Both types of accommodations are equipped with tasteful furnishing and excellent cuisine. They offer excellent game drives and bush walks all with an individual service.Highly recommended!!

Natur- und Fotoreise Wir hatten einen besonders intensiven Aufenthalt auf der Lodge und in Zeltcamp. Jeden Tag neue Eindrücke, dank unseres exzellenten Guides Daniel. Er kennt Tiere und Natur wie seine Westentasche. Nach einem langen Tag, Abends Erholung pur am Lagerfeuer und bester Küche. Das wird sicher nicht der letzte Aufenthalt auf OHORONGO gewesen sein.
Zauberhafte Afrika Reise! Der Urlaub auf Ohorongo war unbeschreiblich schön und erholsam. Das Essen war hervorragend, die Zimmer sehr sauber und der Service perfekt. Neben der Lodge kann man die Tiere ganz nah beobachten, ein einzigartiges Erlebnis
