Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - ADVENTURE DRIVE -

Etosha Heights is a pri­vate game re­serve of around 60 000 hectares that bor­ders Namibia’s fa­mous Etosha Na­tional Park. Etosha Heights of­fers two lodges, both op­u­lent and beau­ti­ful, sur­rounded by 360 de­grees of amaz­ing Namib­ian fauna and flora.

The Sa­far­i­hoek Lodge is lo­cated on a hill­side and over­looks a large wa­ter­hole and a huge chunk of the farm. You can choose be­tween nu­mer­ous shared ameni­ties like the pool, wine lounge or fire­place, or the pri­vacy of your own lux­ury cabin.

The sec­ond lodg­ing op­tion is the Etosha Moun­tain Lodge, with a main build­ing that of­fers an un­ob­structed view of the sur­round­ings. There’s also a main lapa and pool area but if you value your pri­vacy, you can re­treat to one of seven lav­ish chalets that of­fers 180-de­gree panora­mas of the park. The usual game re­serve ac­tiv­i­ties are on of­fer, in­clud­ing game drives, pho­tog­ra­phy, night drives and rhino track­ing.

Let’s not for­get about those epic sun­sets, which by them­selves are com­pletely worth the trip to Etosha Heights. The re­serve fea­ture four of Africa’s Big Five, it’s only the buf­falo that is not around (be­cause of dis­ease threats to lo­cal cat­tle pop­u­la­tions).
