South of Etosha National Park’s Andersson Gate, Taleni Etosha Village provides good value self-catering accommodation perfect for those looking to explore Namibia’s flagship safari park.

Whilst guests may decide to drive themselves around Etosha National Park, the lodge offers early-morning, afternoon, and all-day guided game drives through key game sites. On these, guests can expect to spot Big Five game, a variety of mongoose and wildebeest among others, and endangered species such as the black rhino. Birdwatching is also good here, with over 340 species of bird such as flamingo, Bare-cheeked babbler, and eagles commonly sighted. There are also opportunities to take sundowner trips into the bush and some stargazing activities.

Guest accommodation consists of 40 tented rooms, which are built on raised timber decks to ensure privacy. Each has its own outside BBQ area, complete with chairs and a table, and a small kitchenette, as well as twin beds, with the option for a sleeper couch for up to two children under 12, en-suite facilities, and an open-air shower.

There is a shallow pool as well as two larger swimming pools for communal use in the main complex. Meals are served under the sun or stars in the open air and tend to be buffet-styled. An open-air bar and restaurant are great places to relax in the evening. There is a shop on site selling simple groceries and drinks for those self catering.

This is a very child friendly environment, and children of all ages are welcome. Families of four with younger children (under 12) can share a room, and the opportunity to self cater and relax around the bbq works well for families. There is a shallow kids pool in addition to two larger pools.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
