The eight twin Meru tents with en-suite facilities give travellers a sense of adventure and still offer familiar comforts. The tents have solar power which enables guests to charge laptops. The central facilities and tented units are set on a hill overlooking a wide plain below. The open central facility and pool provide excellent opportunities for relaxation returning from adventures.

Uukwaluudhi Safari Lodge is an excellent opportunity to discover a little known area of Namibia.
