Zannier Hotels Omaanda │ Windhoek East
Wild Beauty, our boutique lodge and 10 individual Owambo-style thatch and clay huts are set in the heart of the Zannier Reserve, our 22,000-acre wildlife conservancy located half an hour from Windhoek. Through our partnership with the N/a’an ku sê Foundation, guests are treated to unforgettable experiences, from breakfasting with meerkats to up-close sightings of big cats. Immersed in Tradition, with magnificent views stretching to the distant hills of the Khomas Hochland Plateau, our one- and two- bedroom thatched huts are inspired by traditional Owambo architecture.
A seamless sense of place resonates at Zannier Hotels Omaanda through traditional Owambo architecture and elevated views stretching across soul-stirring savannas to the distant Khomas Hochland plateau. Precious antiques, traditional fabrics and authentic ceramics continue the cultural context of the rush-thatched round huts, each with their own sunken bathtub and panoramic terrace. Every day is an immersion into Namibia’s exoticism. Famously watch wildlife drink at the nearby watering hole, from your infinity poolside seat. Try local delicacies prepared at the Ambo Delights restaurant. Discover the soulful healing of ancient Namibian therapies that fuse local roots, herbs and spices. As night falls, gather for star-lit fireside cocktails, around the authentic Boma.
Relaxation is balanced by adventures through Omaanda’s partnership with N/a’an ku sê - a foundation dedicated to the conservancy of Namibia’s wildlife, land and cultures. Breakfast with meerkats at sunrise; track a rhino or a herd of elephants going for a swim; spy a leopard climbing a Jackleberry tree or simply experience the nocturnal beauty of the savanna – all with your own private guide.
