Etosha heights is one of the largest private reserves in Namibia and has off the chart’s wildlife viewing without the crowds, sharing a 65-kilometre boundary with the famous Etosha National Park. The reserve offers 60,000 hectares of unspoiled wildlife, landscapes, and tranquillity; truly a place to reconnect with nature and escape the modern stresses of life.

Over the past 7 years this reserve has transitioned from an agricultural and hunting area to what is now a conservation success story. The result has been a significant increase in both variety and density of wildlife to the point where the wildlife populations are now an extension to the adjacent Etosha National Park and the game watching opportunities for visitors are exceptional.

The thriving wildlife area, already famous for both black and white rhino, now also has healthy populations of other threatened or endangered species including over 150 elephants (elephant previously did not use this reserve), 200 locally endemic, black-faced impala, 60 sable antelope and over 30 lions. Etosha Heights also provides an important roost and bathing area for 2 of Namibia’s vulnerable vulture species; the white-backed and lappet-faced vulture. Being at the intersection of desert animals and savannah species, visitors can expect to encounter leopard, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, oryx, wildebeest, eland, as well as some smaller species of jackal, bat-eared fox, the elusive honey badger and so much more.

The game viewing experience in this private reserve is further enhanced by our expert safari guides, a two-stored photographic hide overlooking a large natural waterhole for close-up encounters, and the absence of crowds at wildlife encounters. The reserve is a hotspot for bird lovers too, enjoy action packed moments like falcons hunting quelea at the waterholes.
