prestigious Ejova Lodge and farmland (including Wildlife Ranch)
is a tourist accommodation and wildlife development right on the edge of
Damaraland with spectacular views over the famous Vingerklip in the Ugab
valley. The Lodge and
Wildlife Ranch on the 6 704-ha farmland is perfectly located as halfway
stop between the Namibian coast and the world-famous Etosha National
Park. It is the ideal safari
and exploration base to explore Damaraland, but also experience the
beauty and serenity of the unique landscapes and abundant wildlife in
the game fenced wildlife sanctuary.
of the outstanding features unique to this farmland is large open
grassland plains with isolated islands of giant flat-top umbrella thorn
trees. While herds of blue
wildebeest, zebra, oryx and springbuck grazes peacefully on the savannah
plains, giraffe stretches majestically to reach the seed pods of the
large umbrella thorn trees. This
idyllic picture reminds one of the most famous safari destinations in
Africa: The Serengeti Plains of Tanzania.
The reception, lounge and restaurant of Ejova Lodge will be
situated on a dolomite ridge with a panoramic view over the vast
Serengeti-like plains. Visitors
can appreciate the breath-taking panorama from the surrounding decks
while enjoying a drink or cool off in the rim-flow swimming pool.
The 16-safari tent-like chalets will be set under the shades of
large umbrella thorn trees, with an unrestricted view of herds of game
roaming on the savannah plains from their own private deck.

According to the World Travel & Tourism Council 2018 report,
Namibia’s projected long-term growth in travel and tourism’s direct
contribution to GDP, is projected at 6,6% per annum for the next ten

is a popular destination by self-drive tourists and tour operators for
that “wilderness” experience created by remote and unspoiled
semi-desert landscapes and up-close encounters with free roaming game.
The area is famous for the ancient Twyfelfontein rock engravings,
the majestic Brandberg, desert adapted rhinos and elephants, the
Vingerklip rock formation in the panoramic Ugab valley, and the
mysterious Petrified Forest. The
popularity of the area and rapid growth in tourism, have resulted in a
shortage of accommodation for visitors.
This scenario combined with the optimistic outlook for long-term
growth in tourism in Namibia creates an excellent opportunity to invest
in tourism in the region and have a vested interest in the unique
