Okahirongo Elephant Lodge

Skeleton Coast

Hotel overview

Perched on a hill above the banks of the ephemeral Hoarusib River, the Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is an oasis of luxury nestled in the heart of the deserted Kaokoland, ensuring a rare tranquil experience.

Okahirongo Elephant Lodge may be the most unique place you ever stay, from the otherworldly landscape to the eccentric architecture. The colours and textures echo the landscape, and the dramatic dome is styled like a signature Himba home. The main lounge and dining room have open sides, for dazzling desert vistas. The infinity-edge pool has practically infinite views to the distant mountains and there’s a traditional boma, where you can gather around an evening fire.

Types of Rooms

The exclusive lodge has just seven well-appointed suites, with four-poster beds. Each room has a private terrace with a covered day bed overlooking the desert, plus a bathroom with both indoor and open-air showers. There is also a private family villa, with two bedrooms, two spectacular bathrooms, a private terrace and personal lounge.
