Ivory Tree Game Lodge

 

The Epacha Private Wildlife Reserve is the ideal extension to your Etosha Safari. Here, you can discover many different animal species by joining us on an exciting morning, afternoon or night drive.

Another major advantage of staying at a private reserve is that you are accompanied by a professional guide who tracks the game in the field. This also makes it possible to leave the 4×4 vehicle and walk by foot, and to enjoy a stunning sunset in the middle of the wilderness.

GAME RESERVE

aha Epacha Wildlife Reserve is the ideal extension to your Etosha Safari. With 13,000 ha, guests have many opportunities to discover different species during a morning, afternoon and/or night drive

The great advantage of staying at a private reserve is that you will be guided by a professional bush guide who navigates the safari vehicle through the bushveld to track down rare species, such as the black-faced impala, cheetah and bat-eared fox.

Together with your guide, it is not only possible to leave the 4×4 vehicle and follow tracks on foot, but you can also enjoy a stunning sunset in the middle of the wilderness!

NIGHT SAFARI

“The rarest of the species come to life at night!” A daytime safari varies from one at night. Join us for a night drive in the Epacha Game Reserve to see creatures you have never seen before!

When you open yourself up to such a thrilling wildlife experience, the variety of animals you can possibly see at night offers something different from the ones we spot during the day.

CLAY PIGEON SHOOTING

Once you have seen the wildlife and enjoyed the spa at aha Epacha Game Lodge, you may want to try your hand at a more thrilling activity: the art of shooting special flying targets with a shotgun.

This unique activity is cherished by many of our guests, as it guarantees an adrenaline rush and a truly exhilarating experience time and again.

Please note that guests are accompanied to the shooting venue by an informative guide and supervised at all times while in possession of firearms. The Lodge provides clay pigeons and cartridges.

ETOSHA PARK 

Besides our own game drives on the Epacha Game Reserve, we also offer daily safaris into Etosha National Park. Our experienced guides take guests for a full day excursion on open 4×4 game drive vehicles.

Here, you have the opportunity to spot some of the most fascinating animal species in Africa, such as large prides of lion, elephant herds, plenty zebra and springbok, as well as the rarer leopards, cheetahs and rhino.


Place of Dry Water

Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’, is centred on a huge, flat calcite depression (or pan) of about 5 000 square kilometres in northern Namibia.
The ‘pan’ provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages in an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn shrubbery. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year. This, however, is enough to stimulate the growth of blue-green algae, which lures thousands of flamingos to the pan at certain times of the year.

Having been proclaimed a game reserve in 1907 and covering an area of more than 22 750 square kilometres, Etosha National Park is one of Africa’s major wildlife sanctuaries. Despite being a highly ‘managed’ environment featuring a cluster of man-made water points around the central pan with a boundary designated by a patrolled electrified fence, this is indeed one of the most special game parks in Africa.

During the drier months (June to November), the waterpoints exert a magnetic pull on the big game herds, which form the centrepiece for visitors looking to see the nearly 150 mammal species to be found in the park. These include several rare and endangered species, such as the black rhino, Black-faced Impala, tsessebe and gemsbok.
