Only a few kilometres from the Hosea Kutako Windhoek International Airport, in the midst of camel thorn trees, riverbeds, and a stone canyon, the scenic Naankuse Lodge is perfectly situated either to start or finish the adventure in Namibia.
With a wide range of enjoyable activities available, including carnivore feeding tours, and walking with cheetahs, you are sure to enjoy an unforgettable tour at the Naankuse Lounge. It is surrounded by its unique lounges and houses called villas. Whether you choose to stay in a villa or a chalet, you’ll get the exquisite experience of being away from the hustle and bustle of town and become a part of the harmonious wild.
The lodge accommodation includes six plentiful in-suite chalets, each comprising a delightful blend of rich society and modern extravagance, while offering a private retreat from the roughness of Africa. All rooms are extravagantly appointed and have been designed to offer total privacy and comfort in harmony with their surroundings.
The villas (houses) are designed with minute attention to detail to create a feeling of natural beauty and comfort. They are incorporating the ethnic and rustic atmosphere of Africa, while offering the ultimate in indulgent accommodation. Each villa is under a thatched roof that conveys taking up warmth in winter and coolness in summer. Grass, wooden logs, stones, and mohair together with excessive linen and bedcovers are a unique combination that complements the lodge experience. Lodge Manager, Rhona Strauss, says regardless of tourist’s choice of lodge accommodation, guests have an easy access to the swimming pool area where they can relax absorbing wonderful views over the natural stone canyon, enjoy a glass of Neuras NamibRed or Painted Wolf Chardonnay by the pool to combine relaxation with the tastes of Africa.
Naankuse is a place where foodies and gourmets can learn new skills, share new ideas and experience new taste. It’s an easy way to get to know their food and wines, and discover some of the world’s finest products. Strauss says tourists learn about the different styles and types of wines that the world has to offer.
The carnivore feeding tour is one of the most astonishing activities at the Lodge. The exciting and informative full carnivore feeding tour for a once in a lifetime wildlife was a great experience. During the course of this tour, we were taken on a real treat when we visited and saw how lions, cheetahs and wild dogs are being fed. We learned how each animal came to Naankuse and learned more about their behaviour in the wild.
Strauss says most of the tourists visiting the lounge are Italians and usually comes end August. One of the tourists said he preferred Naankuse Lodge because of its landscapes and the behaviour of the animals.
