Eagle Tented Lodge is a lodge located near one of Namibia’s highlights: Etosha National Park. This world-famous park is located in the northwestern region of the county. It is a game reserve since March 1907 and got the status of a national park in 1967. Etosha National Park spans an area of no less 22,270 km2 and gets its name from the Etosha salt pan, which covers 23% of the area of Etosha National Park. The pan is so large it can even be seen from space. The park is regarded as one of the best wildlife destinations in the world. It is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros. The abundant wildlife congregates around several waterholes located inside park, which ensures almost guaranteed game sightings. It is also one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa and visitors can even drive their own vehicle within the park.
Many of the best places to stay are located just outside the park. Eagle Tented Lodge is one of them. The Lodge is about a one-hour drive from Etosha and part of the Epacha Game Lodge, which offers an experience filled with an abundance of Namibian wildlife and topped with majestic views over the surrounding mountains and valleys. At Eagle Tented Lodge guest can stay close to nature in authentic safari tents without compromising on the comfort or luxury of a hotel room.
