Okapuka Ranch, Windhoek

3.8
Experience African wildlife at Okapuka Ranch, a lodge and a zoo offering game safaris, lion feedings, and day tours. The ranch is home to white rhinos, crocodiles, various antelopes, and lions. With 18 thatched roof rooms, the place is a popular venue for conferences and corporate team-building. There is a bar carved out of camel thorn tree from which you can sip a drink and watch the bush rising toward the mountain. This setting reflects a bygone era, as decor includes wall paintings by a local artist and hand-woven rugs with wool from indigenous sheep.

  • Let's start with the beauty of the lodge. So stunning! The meal prices are outrageous but that's to be expected I'm sure. We loved walking among the warthogs, goats, sheep and ostrich. If you're stayi...  more »

  • Great place to start a trip in Namibia. Rooms are spacious and traditional. The garden close to the restaurant is the stage where several species roam freely. The only place where I saw a Rhino 10m away. Impressive!!
  • One of the coolest lodges in Namibia. The wildlife is abundant and the infrastructure is top notch. The staff is very professional
  • Spent lovely relaxing afternoon as day visitor with my children and their baby next to the pool but spoilt by the German Manager - very unfriendly but typical of his autocratic origin. There was only 1 toilet open in the LADIES - had to stand and wait whilst a tourist with her 2 children were using the other available one. The owners should consider interlocks for the parking area - would create a more easier and comfortable walk to the entrance of the Ranch, especially for those in wheelchairs and parents with baby prams.
  • Buffet lunch is quite good. The game drive is a must, lots of animals at a close range: crocodiles, rhinos, oryx, giraffes...
  • Good spontaneous safari option, dine with warthogs next to you
