Kambaku Safari Lodge
Namibia, located in southwestern Africa, is large, sparsely populated, varied and known for its beautiful, barren nature, its red dunes and exciting safaris. The official language is English.
In the heart of Namibia, amidst an imposing African landscape the family-owned and operated private game reserve Kambaku with some 8000 ha of bush savannah, is a home for vast numbers of wild animals. Here, on an elevated plateau some 1,600 meters above sea level, nature is very sensitive. Despite of this, you will find the bush savannah rarely somewhere else so rich in wildlife and naturally unspoiled as it is here.
Practically all of Africa’s antelope species like impala, gnu, kudu, and eland as well as the sword-carrying oryx can be found. They share the savannah with giraffes and zebras, warthogs, porcupines, aardvarks, anteaters and other small mammals. Leopard, cheetah, hyena, and jackal are also present, but rarely seen from horseback. The absence of elephant and lion means guests of all levels can ride safely. Kambaku also offers bush walks and game drives, so this is an ideal destination for riders and non-riders alike.
The game reserve is also home to a herd ofhighly valued horses. About twenty horses are at your disposal, from a small Welsh pony, several larger ponies, up to German and Namibian warmbloods at 170 cm at the withers. Here is a suitable horse for all levels and wishes. The horses are continuously trained on the arena so in addition to safari rides there is the opportunity for dressage and jumping lessons.
During the week you can also go on a jeep safari in Etosha National Park where you have the chance to see elephants, giraffes, lions, and herds with spring bucks and, with a little luck, black rhino. Other possible day trip is a visit to The San people, or bushmen as they are referred to, who are one of the last known true hunter-gatherer societies left today.
In addition to exciting activities, you will be very personally taken care of, there are only ten rooms, so each guest is unique.
The food and service are excellent, for example the dinners consist of a fantastic three-course candlelight dinner served with a good wine. Why not end an eventful day with a good drink in front of the open fire and listen to all the animals of the savannah. Then you will sleep well!
