SURROUNDING AREAS

The ideal location of a natural stream of the Ntunda River on the East, the Lutshetshete Pan on the South and Oshana sha Mlimbalimba on South-West make Namibia Lodge 2000 & Safaris a golden island of its own. However it is also in close proximity to a number of historical and cultural sites as well as some of Namibia's main tourist attractions and is therefore ideally situated as a base for self-drive tours and exploring the surrounding area.
