Travellers' Choice
Welcome to Etusis Lodge, 36 km south from Karibib on the C32. It is a breathtakingly beautiful setting at the foot of the Otjipatera Mountains and the Etusis Marble hills in the heart of the 20.000ha Etusis Wildlife reserve! You have the chance to enter the unspoiled nature walking, on scenic drives or on the back of the very special Basotho horses . The philosophy of the reserve is to preserve a piece of untouched Africa where we are guests of nature. Our 7 air-conditioned bungalows (incl. DBB), in carefully selected settings are arranged around the main building blending in with the environment. Five Meru-style tents including DBB, get you even closer to the African night. A farmhouse accommodating up to 7 guests on a self-catering basis ideal for family groups. Etusis Campsite offers a very beautiful setting for guests who want to experience the wilderness and tranquility that comforts the soul. The campsite is 20 km apart from the lodge.

We spent 3 nights at Etusis in a Bungalow. The lodge is easily reachable from Karibib and well signed so you find your way. Monica and Johann are running the lodge very professional. The team is perfectly organised in all matters. The breakfast and dinner and also the high tea are fabulous. Silvanus and the cooking team are more than talented and food is delicious and creative in every way. Milk products are locally produced and more than delicious. The rooms are very nice and private, spotless clean and in a very good condition. Housekeeping is doing a great job too! There is nothing that is old or not well maintained. The pool area is relaxing and very beautiful to hang around. Pool towels are provided in the rooms. One evening we did a sundowner drive with Johann and we had

Spent 2 nights in the self catering Farmhouse with family (4 adults 2 children. Very relaxing and all amenities were available. Good walks on both days and some wildlife spotted locally. Monica and Johan are running the lodge and they spent much time chatting and passing on local information. Although we looked after ourselves with braais and potjies, we were able to use the lodge for drinks and coffee and cakes. We did stay there last year and enjoyed the full DBB experience also.

We actually just booked this lodge to have a night's rest between the long drive from Otavi to Swakopmund. But when we arrived we were really astonished by the beauty of this lodge and the landscape where it is situated. The room we spent the night in was very comfortable, clean and tidy and had a wifi connection in front of the room (almost all other lodges only had wifi within the reception area). The only thing that was a bit negative, was the fact that water tasted a bit different and it takes some time to get used to it. Other than that there are a few activities like horse riding or hiking which are possible. The owners are very friendly and the food was outstanding. The pool is also very nice, with the possibility to play table tennis as well. Altogether we were

Thank you so much for your recommendation! We are happy that we could be a positive surprise for you! Regarding your remark towards the water: our water is coming from a subterranean fountain within the marble mountains. Therefore, it has a high concentration of minerals. Some of our guests love it, others take some time to get acquainted. It is a wonderful compliment that you consider us for your next trip! Kindest regards Per

The highlight is undoubtedly the dinner together at a large table. Pure Africa feeling with very nice hosts and really good food. The lodge and the accommodations have a high standard. We felt very comfortable as a family with two children (10 and 12 years old). Altogether it is quiet, but there are also enough activities: swimming pool, hiking, horse riding, excursions, ... We are very happy to recommend the Etuis-Lodge!

We visited Etusis for just one short stop on our way from Windhoek to Swakopmund. The drive to the lodge takes some time but it is worth it. It is a really nice place and the family-rooms (bungalows) are really good. The beds are really comfy and the bathrooms are very nice. The whole lodge is really nice. The pool area seems also really inviting, but we did not have time to hop in the pool. The dinner was really delicious. Goof food. A nice buffet with really good food. We did not do any activities there as we were only staying for a couple of hours.
