Zebra River Lodge
Zebra River Lodge is an old original farmhouse, situated in 12 500 hectares of dramatic scenery, deep in the Tsaris Mountains of southern Namibia. It has welcomed guests to its special environment for more than 15 years. The present owners, Peter and Elke Young, took over the lodge in August 2009, and have carried out extensive renovations to bring the lodge up to modern-day standards without losing the charm, original features and atmosphere of the old farmhouse. The solar water heaters make the most of the sun and the new water hole (which will in time, be floodlit) is attracting more and more animals and birds as they discover this permanent source of water in the desert.
Let the warmth and our Namibian hospitality welcome you to a place of light and airy spaces on the slopes of the Zebra River Canyon in the Tsaris Mountains.
Zebra River Canyon is a heaven for geologists, archaeologists and palaeontologists, hikers and birders, as well as for those who just want peace and quiet.
We invite you to relax under an azure-blue sky and to feast your senses on our tranquil surroundings where you can listen to the silence of nature.
A paradise for nature lovers, the environment offers hiking over endless plateaus and into deep canyons to discover an abundance of birds and antelopes or see the mountain zebras keeping watch over their territory.
Take home memories of homemade bread and delicious, farm-style comfort food complemented by an outstanding selection of South African wines. Experience summer dinners together under the cool veranda or nestle up to the warm fireplace in winter.
Visit this magic place where the setting sun makes the mountains glow in golden colours and beautiful stars guide you through your sleep.
Zebra River Lodge is situated on the D 850, 19 km from the intersection with the D 854 and 10 km from the intersection with the D 855. It is accessible with a normal sedan car, but care must be taken on our 5 km driveway. This is true for all the district roads and, of course, particular care must be taken in the wet season.
