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.
