More and more travellers to Namibia are making use of Ondekaremba’s transfer services. During the current high season we drive to the airport ten to five times a week. Whole travel groups can be shuttled to and from the airport in our modern minibus.

The Toyota Quantum can seat 14 people; baggage is transported in a trailer. We guarantee comfort and space, even on the short 10-minute drive through the African bush savannah from the airport to Ondekaremba Lodge. Our shuttle service to Windhoek, which reaches the capital in about 40 minutes, is used about once or twice a week.

Eleven new flights per week

Fans of Namibia can now look forward to more flight connections and possibly a drop in prices. Three additional airways will be offering flights in and out of Windhoek International Airport. Savvy travellers will not only save on the flight, but also on travel right after landing and before departure: with Ondekaremba...

From the end of September Qatar Airways will offer four connections per week via Doha, from the beginning of October Ethiopian Airlines will fly three times a week via Addis Ababa and Gaborone (Botswana) and from the end of October Dutch carrier KLM will operate three flights a week from Amsterdam via Luanda to Windhoek. In total, these are ten new connections with stopovers.

German carrier Condor had already increased their direct flights to three per week at the beginning of July: a flight from Munich was added to the two existing flights out of Frankfurt.

Ondekaremba is the ideal first stop after arrival and last stop before the return flight. Thanks to the transfers you can save the cost of a rental car for the duration of your stay. Many tourists also make use of the day visit on the last day before their return flight. Lounging at the pool or taking a walk through the bush savannah surely beats hanging around the airport building.

From farm to natural paradise

Ondekaremba hands over the majority of its farmland to its northern neighbour. However, the heart of the charming bush savannah landscape remains with the lodge. This step is taken to ensure the acquisition of a new partner.

Ghaub Nature Reserve & Farm in the Otavi mountains in the central northern parts of Namibia joins the four-year old partnership between Ondekaremba and Waterberg Wilderness (at the Waterberg, south of the Otavi mountains). Overnight visitors to Ghaub or Waterberg Wilderness benefit from the partnership by receiving a voucher for a day visit to Ondekaremba.

Still situated within the varied landscape of the bush savannah, with hiking trails and a dry riverbed lined with trees, Ondekaremba Lodge has lost none of its charm. The self-catering Erioloba Village and a campsite are also part of this natural paradise.
