Min Read

In search of evasiveness? What about discovering the vast Namibian landscape and pampering yourself in exquisite lodges? Zannier Hotels recently opened two outstanding lodges in this very low dense region, one of which is Zannier Hotels Omaanda, a round-thatched hut camp in the middle of the savannah, designed to offer exceptional journeys for travelers aiming at discovering untouched and wild landscapes without renouncing to a certain level of comfort, in a country where the luxury hotel industry is still in its birthing phase.

Zannier Hotels Omaanda – the call of the desert

Zannier Hotels Omaanda inspired by the word “Omhanda” meaning rhinoceros in Oshiwambo) owes its name to its exceptional location, in the heart of a private animal reserve, the Zannier Reserve by N/a’an ku sê.

Lying on some 7,500 hectares in the savannah near the capital city of Windhoek, this vast, soberly luxurious and yet unique site will offer guests an exquisitely peaceful sojourn surrounded by the natural beauty of the area.

The lodge is composed of ten luxury huts inspired by traditional Owambo architecture. This ethnic local majority is known for its secular and sober know-how inspired by and yet respectful of the environment that surrounds it. Zannier Hotels Omaanda invites its guests to return for a short while to the source of life and experience nature at its wildest. The tranquility and the isolation, the fauna and flora, and the pure and wild beauty of the landscape stretching as far as the eye can see, will make this destination unforgettable – a timeless break suspended in rich authenticity.

Zannier Hotels Omaanda offers a 360-degree view over the African plains and savannah. The village has been naturally transformed into a luxurious wild retreat boasting contemporary comfort of the highest quality and the trademark of Zannier Hotels, yet naturally blending into the décor inspired by the Owambo traditions. This is how Zannier Hotels successfully manages to maintain and preserve this particular atmosphere, from the savannah to the city center & from the mountain to the rice fields…

To preserve its charm and peacefulness, and to help the site melt seamlessly into the surrounding background, the lodge is composed of ten huts (eight of 60 sqm with a double room and two of 120 sqm with two double rooms and a living room). All the huts are equipped with the greatest comfort. From their large private terrace, guests can enjoy the superb views stretching to the distant mountains. This breathtaking show lives like an ode to natural and timeless beauty.

Numerous excursions and safaris included in the services offered at the resort make a change between adventure and rest. This is yet one more unique and incredible experience. The programs are made to measure guests, according to their taste for discovery and exploration. Each excursion becomes a unique, different, and utterly magical experience.

And so as you consider Namibia for your next vacation spot, a resort escape wherein you are cradled by wild landscapes may very well be what you need. Zanier Hotels Omaanda’s unforgettable experiences are sure to capture your imagination and grant you a much-needed respite or break from the concrete jungles that dot lands beyond its surrounds.
