Home away from home, friendly staff, cosy, great breakfast croissants, hot love tea tastes amazing. Perfect getaway from the city for the weekend. View breathtaking, zebras along the trail and the neck and back massage was definitely worth it.

I have been to ONJALA several times already and I am always looking forward to my next stay. There is constant improvement going on without disturbing the tranquility of this very special place. The treatment in the Spa was excellent and a special experience. Will be back soon.

Onjala Lodge is an ideal place if you just arrived in Namibia - or: if you need a break and a massage to relax, calm down or: pleasure time or to enjoy the last days with a nice view in to the countryside before you have to leave this wonderful Country.

This is an outstanding experience. About an hour from WDH airport, it is just the right size - big enough to have lots of space, small enough that you can explore all of it. A wide variety of antelopes and other fauna, but no big predators, so it is safe to walk around.There are leopards, but they are very shy....

Onjala is a great place close enough to Windhoek for a great breakaway weekend. We went out as a few ladies to do some mountain biking, walking and simply just relaxing in nature.

After traveling for 3 months I just wanted to relax and collect my thoughts. For this purpose Onjala was perfect. I was collected from the airport. Everyone was very friendly, food great, simple set menus, perfect. I booked 2 massages plus manicure and pedicure, felt like a new person. Spent my days putting together my albums, swimming, eating and drinking....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first impression is simply astonishing. Here, where the dense bush savannah is inhabited solely by animal life, an unexpected opening appears and reveals giraffes, black wildebeest, zebras and oryx congregating to trade the news of the day. Rising above all this is a mountainside, dotted with the pointed roofs of our lodge bungalows. This is Onjala, a gem cradled in the arms of Africa, a place to catch your breath and recharge your spirit's batteries. Welcome to this 1,700 hectare private nature reserve, located a mere 40 minute's drive from Windhoek airport,. It's yours now. Feel free to move around as you like, making friends with everyone or everything that crosses your path. Spend hours floating in the waterfall pool or being pampered and revitalized at our ZenSations Spa. Inside our comfortable suites, you can listen at night while the wildlife sings you to sleep with their own unique lullaby. At breakfast in the garden the next morning, you won't be quite sure whether it was real or a dream. Onjala can be the opening scene in your journey or the grand finale. Either way, it's always a time of enchantment within the treasures of the African spirit. ... more   less
