Omarunga Lodge, Campsite, Bar & Restaurant
|Epupa Falls Area, Namibia
Situated approximately 435km by road from Kamajab on the banks of the Kunene river, Omarunga Lodge is the very picture of the beauty and serenity of nature at her finest. Hidden in a forest of Makalani Palm trees with the sound of the river to accompany you while taking a walk, or simply relaxing, it is hard to imagine a more peaceful and tranquil setting.
Omarunga Lodge offers accommodation in 13 luxury, en-suite chalets and one luxury family chalet in the shade of a Makalani Palm forest. All units offer all the comforts of a home away from home. They also have nine camping sites with ablution blocks (hot water) next to the river.
An excellent restaurant and bar are located in a lapa on the river bank. There is a little curio shop for a small momentum of your visit.
Swimming in the river is unfortunately not allowed (crocodiles), but there is a sparkling swimming pool available on the premises for guests. Campers are also free to use our restaurant, but booking is essential.
