Otjimbondona, meaning “the place where the small camel thorn trees grow” in the Herero language, was bought by the Slaney family in 1922 to farm with sheep and cattle. Wilfried and Anita, took over the farm in 2008 as the third generation of cattle and sheep farming Slaneys and are welcoming guests to their boutique lodge, Otjimbondona Kalahari.

Cradled amongst Camel thorn trees with vistas of undulating Kalahari landscape crusted in golden grass, Otjimbondona offers those seeking tranquillity, exclusivity and luxury the ideal African retreat.

Otjimbondona is situated 120 km south east of Windhoek, and 80 km from the Hosea Kutako International Airport, on a 3000 hectare Private Nature Reserve on the fringes of the Namibian Kalahari.

This hidden gem with its inviting Manor House and four comfortable Villas is the perfect place to start or end your Namibian adventure, or it provides a haven for those who simply wish to relax and unwind.
