Klein-Aus Vista is set in a magnificent location at the foot of the Aus Mountains on the border of Sperrgebiet, the prohibited area of diamond mines.
The lodge consists of the Desert Horse Inn and the Eagle’s Nest Chalets, where you will be staying. The Eagle’s Nest Chalets are located 7 km from the main building, the restaurant and the lounge, where there is a telephone, fax and internet connection.
There are nine chalets in all, built of giant boulders or actually carved into the cliff face. All chalets have stone floors and wooden furniture, and all feature a separate bathroom, kitchenette, fireplace and veranda overlooking the seemingly endless Namib Desert. From the windows, it is not unusual to see small ‘klipspringer’ antelopes and wild horses grazing close to the lodge.
The countryside around Klein-Aus Vista is truly extraordinary, and there are numerous vantage points close to the lodge that you can easily reach by mountainbike or on foot.
In Damaraland, by the Uniab River in north-west Namibia, is the small 3-star Palmwag Lodge. The river brings life to the whole area. Shady palm trees create an oasis-like atmosphere in the middle of the desert and the water draws animals to the area. The surrounding area is home to zebras, kudus and elephants.
The rooms are simple yet functional, and all have an en suite bathroom. The lodge’s restaurant affords a wonderful view of the river, and it is not uncommon for elephants to wander past right in the middle of breakfast! There are two pools and a cosy lounge area with books on the area.
Onjala Lodge has four bungalows located in the bush just a short distance from the main building. Each bungalow is divided up into two separate and spacious rooms, furnished in warm African colours and featuring an en suite bathroom. Relax on the veranda and read a book, enjoy the magnificent setting and listen to the sounds made by all the different animals. If you are lucky, you may even see a warthog or an antelope wander by.
Meals are served in the charming thatched restaurant, from where there is a wonderful view out over the valley.
After a day packed with exciting experiences, it is a delight to take a refreshing dip in the pool.
Onjala Lodge also places high emphasis on eco-friendliness and sustainability. As the region experiences little rain and a great many hours of sun, it is crucial to recycle water and make use of renewable energy. Onjala has therefore established its own purification plant and solar heating installation.
Just a 20-minute drive from Andersson Gate, one of the access roads to Etosha National Park, is the 3-star hotel, Etosha Gateway.

The lodge has been carefully designed and furnished with natural materials that perfectly suit the fantastic surroundings

All the different types are built to the same high standard, all have a separate bathroom, and all are fitted with air conditioning, ceiling fans, a minibar, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
In partnership with the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch is the ‘animal keeper’ for a coalition of cheetahs, who live in a fenced-off area commissioned by the Ministry for Tourism and Wildlife. These beautiful felines cannot be re-released into the wild for one reason or another, so everything possible must be done to ensure they can enjoy the most ‘natural’ life possible.
From the lodge itself, there is a magnificent view out over the rugged landscape, and the sunsets here are an absolute delight. The view encompasses a watering hole, where the animals come to drink and the cheetahs play.
