Emanya@Etosha Game Lodge is a comfortable, well-presented safari base located just 20 minutes away from the renowned Etosha National Park in north western Namibia. Privately owned, the lodge accommodates no more than 40 people at any given time and has a fairly exclusive feel, along with a large outdoor pool and wonderful views of the surrounding scenery and wildlife. The all-inclusive rates cover accommodation, three daily meals and one activity per day.

There are 20 chalets, all decorated in a stylish, contemporary style. Amenities include air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, a TV and a safe. Bathrooms are en-suite and house either a shower or a bathtub. Some of the chalets have two beds, while some have a single queen size bed.

Etosha National Park is named after an expansive salt pan that covers roughly a quarter of the park’s total area. It’s known for its vast and dramatic desert landscapes and wonderful biodiversity, with tens of thousands of animals calling it home. The lodge leads thrilling guided game drives which reveal the park’s dense wildlife and breathtakingly beautiful terrain. Game drives take place in the early morning, at sunset and in the evening.

Plenty of animals and birdlife can also be spotted from the comfort of the lodge itself. The dining area and bar both overlook a busy watering hole where wildebeest, giraffes, sables, antelopes and more come to drink. There’s also a viewing deck which offers brilliant vantage points both for watching wildlife and admiring the surrounding natural scenery.

While there is no spa as such, foot massages are offered for those looking to unwind and enjoy a bit of pampering. The restaurant serves a selection of delicious dishes, and private dining can be arranged on request. There’s also a well-stocked wine cellar housing fine wines from around the world.

Children of all ages are welcome to stay at the lodge and those under the age of 12 get discounted rates for the game drives. Parents are reminded to keep their children under constant adult supervision.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
