Namibia's Most Luxurious Lodges
A selection of the most luxurious and expensive lodges in Namibia that we showcase on Uyaphi.com with emphasis on location, size of establishment, facilities on offer and of course the all-important price tag of the lodges.
A collection of Namibia accommodation for those who demand the finest in everything as well as the utmost in privacy, these lodges offer it all. All lodges do offer private landing strips should one charter a private aircraft for the duration of the safari.
Bear in mind that Namibia does not compete with Botswana and South Africa when it comes to wildlife and hence does not compete with the upper-level lodges that both those countries can offer in terms of pricing.
