NiamhfromIreland: Had a lovely stay here with a friend when traveling through Namibia. One of my highlights was the spa which was open to the wild – very very relaxing. Nice infinity pool setting, Night drive with outdoor night buffet in the wild was great. Would recommend.

Loicamado: We arrived after a long trip (we came from the Zebra Kalahari Leading lodge) at the Epacha Game Lodge and Spa. We got our key and were brought with the caddy to our very cosy looking chalet. Once we opened the door, we couldn’t believe our eyes. A nicely decorated room, a very inviting huge bed and a big balcony with a stunning view over the hills of the reserve. The bathroom and outdoor shower just completed the picture. High end material, luxury in every detail…
We re freshened ourselves and went to the restaurant for a quality dinner. The five courses were delicious every single day.
The Belgian Chef Louis (that has apparently worked as a sous-chef for several years in a 3 michelin star restaurant)has really implemented an amazing menu at Epacha and Eagle tented lodge.
We ate game every day because it was so tasty and well prepared.
The first morning we went on a game drive in the Epacha reserve. We were the two of us and the ranger in the large game vehicle. It had rained a lot, so the roads were quite slippery and very muddy. The ranger showed us some rally/drifting skills (which was pretty exciting) and got us through to the “vlaktepost”, a stunning large plain in between the hills with a waterhole. Because there was water everywhere, animals couldn’t be spotted easily and wouldn’t really bother visiting the waterhole. However, after a few minutes, I spotted 10 giraffes a few meters from us. An amazing sight… Oryx, black-faced impalas, elands, kudus, tsessebe, hartebeest, zebras also crossed our path in that particular game drive. But, we were waiting and looking for the so-called black rhinos the Lodge claimed they had walking around. The ranger really tried his best to show them to us (as he had seen fresh tracks in the mud pools in the morning), but unfortunately we didn’t get that lucky.
Too bad, but we were satisfied as it was a very nice experience.
The poolside area with bar has an infinity pool with an amazing view (we could even spot giraffes from here) and the spa is top-notch. Me and my girlfriend had a very romantic and relaxing massage and went into the jacuzzi afterwards to enjoy a sun downer.
We went on our own to Etosha the day after, which is 40 km from the lodge, and loved it. It’s such a beautiful, quiet reserve and we saw a lot of animals. Lions, elephants,… which was amazing. The lodge is also building a new road over the hills to make a shortcut to Etosha and only be a few km away from the reserve once you come on the main road. We will definitely have to come back to experience that. 🙂
Unfortunately, our fantastic journey came to an end.
It has been a mind blowing experience and we were very well received by the staff. It was a stay with no problems or difficulties at all. Thank you very much Epacha Game Lodge and Spa. You are worth every penny!
