Experience The Best Of Namibia With Our Portfolio Of Lodges
With its unique geography and geology, Namibia offers the traveller a wide range of attractions; this is reflected in an eclectic choice of Namibia accommodation, boutique hotels, safari lodges, and tented camps.
The Uyaphi team has selected a portfolio of properties that represent the best quality of their type within their geographic areas. One point which is common to all these establishments is the overwhelming hospitality with which you will be greeted.
The genuine warmth and curiosity of the local people will enhance your Namibia safari and guarantee your return in the not-too-distant future.
We offer a portfolio of luxury lodge and safari camp options in the Etosha National Park and Damaraland in the north, the Kalahari Desert in the east, the Namib Desert and Skeleton Coast National Park in the west and the Fish River Canyon in the south, as well as the main towns of Windhoek and Swakopmund.
Namibia offers a variety of accommodation types, from luxury safari lodges to authentic and rustic tented camps all the way through to more budget-orientated options and everything thing in between. We always like to say that we will have something for everyone and in most circumstances, we do.
Typically, the best months for travel in Namibia are during the winter months, from May to November, which is also the prime safari season; the summertime can be too hot for most (although pricing is cheaper during summer).
Our African safari specialist will be able to guide you and arrange for you a bespoke itinerary incorporating any one or any combination of the stunning Namibia accommodation options we offer on Uyaphi.com.

The Best Safari Camps And Lodges In Namibia
Namib Desert Lodges
Together with its vast open areas, imposing dunes and salt pans, the Namib Naukluft Park is ranked the fourth most significant conservation region on earth.
The famous Sossusvlei dunes at over three hundred meters are the highest on earth. You will find three primary sightseeing attractions in the area: Sossusvlei, Sesriem, and Naukluft.
A selection of the best safari lodge options in and around Sossusvlei and the NamibRand Nature Reserve. One of Namibia's best attractions is waiting.
Etosha Park Lodges
Etosha, which means 'great white place', is dominated by an enormous, glistening white salt pan surrounded by grasslands and bushveld.
The Etosha National Park is Namibia's main wildlife sanctuary as well as one of southern Africa's very best and most environmentally valuable game parks.
We offer safari lodge options inside the Etosha National Park as well as in surrounding private game reserves. Choose between luxury lodges and the best in tented camps.
Damaraland, the Skeleton Coast, all the way up to the Kunene River are recognized as being one of Africa's last true remaining wildernesses as well as being one of the most picturesque safari destinations.
The main attractions are the Spitzkoppe, the Brandberg, the rock art, and the fascinating organ pipes and petrified forest at Twyfelfontein, as well as the fabulous scenic vistas and free-roaming wildlife.
Surrounded by Namibia desert views and desert-adapted wildlife, a portfolio of luxury lodges and safari camp options await.
Fish River Canyon Lodges
The Fish River Canyon in Namibia is spectacular and awe-inspiring in its size. The second-biggest canyon in the world was created by the eponymous river coursing through a desert ecosystem over millions of years; the scenery is desolate, dusty and rocky with deep chasms.
A must-visit destination when in or around the Southern region of Namibia.
Zambezi Region Lodges
The "Zambezi Region" formerly known as the "Caprivi Strip" is a lush green area in the far north of Namibia that is host to wildlife, birdlife and fishing. Interestingly, this 450² kilometre stretch of land borders four countries; Angola, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe while also giving rise to the Zambezi River and the Chobe River.
Some of the finest wildlife and birdlife in Southern Africa can be found here in the Caprivi Strip of Namibia.
Namibia Kalahari Lodges
The Kalahari Desert with her red dunes, wildlife and birdlife, dried-out waterways and the indigenous San Bushmen who have lived here for over 20 000 years is the perfect stopover when travelling between Windhoek, the Fish River Canyon and Luderitz.
The Kalahari Desert with scenic desert landscapes, desert wildlife, game drives and, of course, a good selection of lodges from which to choose.
Not the most popular region in Namibia, but saying that, we have been here a few times and have loved every second of it.
After the culture shock of being in a German town transplanted 8000 kilometres to African coastal sunshine, you will find yourself in Namibia’s second-largest town and its leading holiday destination.
The attractive heritage buildings add character and incorporate many restaurants, pubs, and clubs, which enable you to escape the desert heat.
Althouigh in the Namib Desert, the cold Atlantic Ocean keeps Swakopmund nice and cool year-round.
Windhoek's appeal is partly based on the mixture of African and European cultures and the friendliness of her people.
The capital city of Namibia, Windhoek is a city of vibrant contrasts surrounded by the beautiful Auas, Eros, and Khomas Hochland mountains.
A small portfolio of boutique hotels, guesthouses and resorts is available for pre and post Namibia safari accommodation options.
The Road To Sossusvlei
Once one navigates the main Sesriem entrance gates and enters the national park a pleasant surprise awaits, a tarred road (yes, a tarred road) that extends all the way through to the main parking area near Sossusvlei.
Cape Town To The Kunene River
In November and December of last year (2019), we loaded our Jeep and headed north out of Cape Town, destination Namibia and the Kunene River, her border with Angola.
A couple of thousand kilometres later, we returned, this time, more in love with country than ever.
Windhoek Oktoberfest 2021
On the 25th and 26th of October, the Sports Klub Windhoek will host the 55th edition of the Oktoberfest. Over 5000 people are expected to attend (compared to 1000 in 2010).
Adding a certain local flavour will be the Namibian band Famaz Attak, and there will be long-established activities and games like archery and tree trunk sawing.
Top 5 restaurants in Windhoek
Continuing our series of dining in Africa, we look at Windhoek. More and more visitors are becoming aware of the unique attractions that this country as a safari destination has to offer.
Nowhere is too far to travel in this small (and clean) city of 330,000 but be warned when you go out to eat, vegetarianism is not common!
Best Places To Go In Namibia
The Uyaphi team has compiled a list of the "Best Places to go" which most safari itineraries would include. A different destination from most African safari destinations.
Instead of lush green forests or open savannas, the primary attraction being vast, open deserts interspersed with canyons, mountain ranges, and oasis.
Living With The Himba
In May 2012, we arranged for Uyaphi.Com client Ken Vine from Devon in England to stay with the traditional Himba people in two remote villages in the middle of Kaokoland.
He lived, slept, ate, conversed and photographed these Himba villagers.
