Naankuse is Namibia's first charity lodge

Naankuse Lodge

Located only 30-minutes from Hosea Kutako International Airport, the award-winning Naankuse Lodge offers stunning accommodation amidst a 3,200-hectare nature reserve. Our lodge is a not-for-profit eco-tourism establishment, where all profits are plowed back into supporting our charitable projects under the Naankuse Foundation.




Our lodge accommodation includes six lavish chalets. These chalets boast large twin beds, air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and have their own private veranda with views overlooking the beautiful bushveld.


Located near to the main lodge, each villa has its own plot, luxury fitted kitchen, and lounge area. Guests can enjoy freshly cooked meals and other facilities at our lodge, including our swimming pool and bar. You can also choose for the lodge to deliver dinner straight to your villa or you can cater for yourself and your family.

And these words ring true, not only for the N/a’an ku sê philosophy, but also for your bush-perfect wedding.

The N/a’an ku sê chapel gazes over the tranquillity of the reserve, encompassing authentic African flair with a touch of romance. N/a’an ku sê Lodge, a rose petal’s throw away, is the ideal venue for the wedding function of your bushveld dreams – focus on your fairytale… leave the fuss to us.

We comfortably cater for 90 guests, 70 if you opt to tap your dancing shoes inside the venue. But what could be better than dancing underneath the Namibian night skies? We can arrange an outside dance floor instead, so you can up your guest list and make the most of the stars.

Décor? No problem. Tell us your heart’s desires and we’ll do the rest. Your wish is our command.

Catering? We’ll titillate your taste buds with a festive feast to satisfy even the fussiest foodies. And we cater for any occasion – beautiful breakfasts, perfect picnics, decadent sit-down dinners, creative cocktails and canapés, and finger-lickingly good BBQ’s.

Dare we say drinks? Oh yes! Our fully licensed bar will keep your thirst at bay, and you can set the limit (or none, if most of your guests are teetotallers).

Professional staff are also at our fingertips, ensuring that your waitering needs are perfectly met. Like we said… your wish is their command.

And when the last dance has ended, the bridal couple gets a free night’s accommodation in a sumptuous lodge room. And we’ll gladly host your guests too. We have six lodge rooms and 14 luxurious villas just perfect for much-needed rest at the end of the night’s revelries.

We would love to hear from you and wave our magic wand in putting together your dream wedding or fabulous function. Simply email lodge [at] naankuse [dot] com and we’ll send you the full details (and also tips on which local photographers, videographers, wedding cake artists, DJ’s and bands will add that extra sparkle).

N/a’an ku sê weddings and functions - your wish is our command.
