go! Namibia - - ERINDI, OMARURU BRANDBERG WHITE LADY LODGE, DAMARA -

Camp Ele­phant in Erindi Pri­vate Game Re­serve has a camp­site next to a water­hole. Erindi Lodge is lux­u­ri­ous, and they didn’t skimp on the camp­site ei­ther – the fa­cil­i­ties are bet­ter than most guest­houses!

The camp is fenced to keep dan­ger­ous an­i­mals out – you can hike the trail along the perime­ter to see some game. But you’ll want to spend most of your time at the water­hole.

Sit on the benches (even at night: there are spot­lights) and watch ele­phant, ze­bra, red har­te­beest, warthog and ba­boons come to drink.

View game in the re­serve, drive to Omaruru for an out­ing, or ex­plore the dirt roads around the dra­matic Erongo Moun­tain to the west.

Rates: Camp­ing R890 per stand (for up to five peo­ple). Camp Ele­phant self-cater­ing chalets R1 790 per night for the first two peo­ple, R690 per ex­tra adult, R395 per child un­der 12. Lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion also avail­able – see their web­site for de­tails. Where? 60 km south-east of Omaruru. GPS: S21.54539 E16.38775 Con­tact: 00 264 81 145 0000;
