Etosha Safari Camp’s upgrade completed, ready for the new season

Etosha Safari Camp’s upgrade completed, ready for the new season

Have you ever shared a shower with an elephant? No? Well then, do not be afraid, you don’t need to because there is an incredibly strong Armstrong fence between your cabin and the elephants of Etosha National Park. But all bathrooms at Etosha Safari Camp now sport a trendy elephant motive embedded in the side of the shower cubicle.

Nevertheless, it remains an exhilarating experience to have a shower with a view to the bush. This unique experience is offered by Etosha Safari Camp, one of the many establishments spread across Namibia, owned and operated by Gondwana Collection.

To improve their offering and have everything in shipshape condition for the season’s rush that has just started, all the guest rooms at Etosha Safari Camp have been redesigned and renovated. This project has only very recently been completed so all amenities are fresh and sparkling, ready for the expected influx of visitors.

Announcing the completion of the extensive upgrade, Gondwana Collection stated this week “We asked our interior designers ‘Women Unleashed’ to create a comfortable and stylish environment connected to the playfulness of the Shebeen – bright, airy and light-hearted. They did a great job.”

Gondwana’s Operations Director Alain Noirfalise explained “The bathrooms underwent a complete renovation. All 50 guest rooms have been redecorated with new, fresh colours. Ten of these are family rooms with four beds each, three triple rooms and 37 double rooms. All rooms offer an ‘exclusive elephant shower’. The Etosha Safari Camp is and will remain a touch of luxury with a touch of the African zest for life.”

Etosha Safari Camp is located on private land only a few kilometres away from the southern fence of Etosha National Park. It is close to the Andersson Gate on the road between Outjo and Okaukuejo, the first rest camp inside the national park.

Its proximity allows extended day-trips into the park which can often be exhausting. All the more reason to return to a hot shower and a cold beer at the end of the day.

Etosha Safari Camp sports a large swimming pool, a bar called Oshebeena, and the Okambashu Restaurant serving only the finest culinary delights Africa can offer. On the outside terrace in the village square, music is made every night by the Etosha Safari Boys.
