Welcome to Onjala Lodge
„After a tour around the country you should stay at Onjala to sit down and look back, to explore the wildlife by foot on you own, enjoy the tranquility of the african savanna and return home relaxed and peaceful.“
Onjala Lodge is situated only 75 km from Windhoek and 45 km from Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport and is easily accessible by small car.
Set against a mountainside, Onjala affords spectacular views of views of the valley below, where resident game roam the 1700 ha private nature reserve.
Perched on the mountaintop is a second pool and viewing platform, affording panorama views and spectacular sunsets. After nightfall the star-studded sky can be explored with a good quality, stationary telescope.
Meals are served either in the cozy farm-style or the open-sided, thatched restaurant, which affords sweeping views over the valley below occasionally dotted with giraffes, wildebeest, kudu or other antelopes. Our experienced kitchen team creates a hearty breakfast, scrumptious light lunch and delicious 3-course-dinner using namibian game and vegetable specialities.
Onjala Lodge subscribes to environment-friendly practices and sustainable tourism. With a low rainfall and high solar radiation yield, water recycling and renewable energy are our main focuses. The lodge-own water treatment plant supplies water used for flush-toilets and irrigation. A solar heating system generates the majority of the lodge's hot water supply. Further attention is given to correct waste management and de-bushing measurements to rehabilitate the formally over-utilized farm land by excessive grazing. Matters concerning Namibia's ecology and biodiversity are explained by means of information tables strategically placed along the walking trails and on guided activities.
