Ondili Maeumbo is an expression from the Ovambo language that means: “I am at home“. We chose that name because it expresses exactly what we want for our guests: to feel at home, to feel at home in Africa, the cradle of mankind. Enjoy our hospitality in three of the most impressive landscapes of Namibia, the Kalahari desert, the Namib desert and the Erongo mountains.




Featured activity: Absolute Erongo Adventure

A two-day adventure – from a comfortable lodge to a romantic night in the African Wilderness, offered exclusively to guests of the Hohenstein Lodge. After hiding its treasures for more than 10 years, the mythical Etemba opens its gates again, presenting the new Etemba Wilderness Camp.



 Ti Melen, a quiet and peaceful haven surrounded by nature, offers the advantage of being only 5 minutes by car from the city centre of Windhoek. Ti Melen is located in Avis district high on a slope at the end of the street and offers stylish and secluded accommodation with a stunning panoramic view of the surrounding area of Windhoek.



Featured activity: Trans-Kalahari walk

The Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge offers a multi-day hike through the dunes of the Kalahari landscape with one or two nights in the Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge and one night in a luxurious tented camp. The hike will take place with an English speaking nature guide for one single participant or up to four participants.



Featured activity: Namib Mountain Trail

Guided hike between lodges in the Sossusvlei region combined with two overnight stays at Desert Homestead Lodge / Desert Homestead Outpost. Before sunrise, the hike will start after an early bird breakfast. The first leg consists of crossing the local landmark mountain. Follow a canyon to the mountain saddle. Light climbing will be necessary here. After one to one and a half hours, the saddle will be reached just as the sun comes up. Enjoy a first rest while watching the sun rise over the red Namib dunes covering the horizon.



Featured activity: Game/ Sundown drive

Enjoy almost 10,000 acres of pure Kalahari desert during a Game Drive. Climb red dunes that elevate up to 30 meters in our open off-road car and watch the spectacular animals and vegetation. Experience the Kalahari desert in its pristine natural state. You can expect to see an array of animals, big and small, on the private game reserve of almost 10,000 acres. Top your Devil’s Claw Tented Lodge day with our Sundown Drive. Enter the sunset in our open off-road car with expert guidance. Immerse in this most beautiful hour of the Kalahari desert.



Featured activity: Horse trails

The Desert Homestead Lodge is famous for its guided trail rides in the Namib desert. Guided rides are offered twice a day in the early morning and close to sunset. Horse riding safaris lasting several days can be booked by experienced riders as well as beginners. Spending the night in a romantic tent camp on a campfire under the starry sky of the Namib desert will be an unforgettable experience.

Ti Melen – The African castle in the capital

Nestled against a hillside on the eastern outskirts of the capital, there’s a little yellow castle. From the outside it appears to be reminiscent of something you’d find in a European countryside. When you pass through the front door though, all similarities with the northern continent fade away and you are met by the style and ambiance of an African bush safari.
