Frans Indongo Lodge


Frans Indongo Lodge is your ideal stop when travelling between Windhoek and Etosha National Park. The lapa, a thatched terrace with a fire-place, is just the right setting for a leisurely ending to an eventful day. Relax and watch a succession of Sable Antelope, Black Springbok and Nyala quench their thirst at the nearby water hole. Frans Indongo Lodge exudes the sense for life of northern Namibia’s people in a most charming way. The complex is modelled on traditional Ovambo homesteads. Inside the complex a palisade separates the restaurant and swimming pool area from the guest chalets and thereby provides more privacy. A variety of beautiful building materials like natural stone, wood and reed were used for the houses. Items of daily use in Ovambo – earthen pots, voluminous storage baskets or original wooden figures – serve as decoration to emphasize the African theme, and lend a very special charm to the lodge. The lodge provides over 2 double rooms, 2 family units and 8 generously proportioned chalets. The lush green garden is shaded by tall trees and sports an artificial brook. You can have a refreshing dip into the swimming pool, and when the sun starts to set just before dinner you can retreat to the large wooden veranda at the bar or the little observation tower. The gourmet kitchen whips up a variety of venison dishes served with farm-fresh vegetables and salads seasoned with aromatic ingredients from our herb garden.
