Opuwo Country Lodge

Top choice lodge in Opuwo
Image by Booking.com

Far and away the area’s swankiest accommodation option with lovely rooms, the hilltop Opuwo Country Lodge is an enormous thatched building (reportedly the largest in Namibia) that elegantly lords it over the town below. The hotel faces across a valley towards the Angolan foothills, and most of your time here will be spent soaking your cares away in the infinity-edge pool.

If the standard rooms are taken and you can’t afford a luxury version, consider pitching a tent in the secluded campsite, which grants you complete access to the lodge’s amenities, including a fully stocked wine bar and a regal dining hall. The turn-off leading up to the lodge is a bit tricky to find, but there are signs posted throughout the town. Activities include excursions to Himba villages and/or the Epupa Falls.
