Situated only 8 km from Kamanjab, enroute to Opuwo, Kaoko Bush Lodge offers cozy private bungalows and convenient camping facilities, as well as an on-site restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lodge is situated inside our own game park. We have more than 18 different species of game and over two hundred bird species, many indigenous to the area, that can viewed at the waterhole just 30 meters away from our restaurant and bar. The lodge also has a swimming pool for cooling down after a full day of exploring. A large solar rig means that we are completely off the grid and our water is sourced from uncontaminated underground springs. Kamanjab is the perfect gateway to the Kaokoveld, where adventure in one of the most pristine landscapes in the world awaits. The town is situated in the Kunene region, known for its rugged mountains, dry river beds, abundance of game and birdlife.

Kamanjab has several well-stocked supermarkets, fuel stations & tyre shops to make sure you are ready for the trip of a lifetime.

Stay Location


Best time to go to Damaraland

You’ll be relieved to hear that the dramatic and glorious Damaraland is a year-long destination! However, the best time to visit is in May through to September, due to animals frequenting waterholes, so you’ll be spoiled with especially rare sightings. If you want Damaraland all to yourself, avoid visiting in July to September when some places can get rather busy. From October to January things can get heated during the day, so come prepared with clothes to stay cool and enough water to hydrate you during your daily experiences!
