N/a'an ku sê Lodge & Wildlife Sanctuary

Located only 30 minutes from Hosea Kutako International Airport, the award-winning N/a’an ku sê Lodge offers stunning accommodation amidst a 3,200 hectare reserve. With activities including carnivore feeding tours, baboon walks, Ancient San skills academy, and much more, you are sure to enjoy an unforgettable African holiday with us.

Our lodge is a not-for-profit eco-tourism destination, where all profits are directed straight back into supporting our charitable projects under the N/a’an ku sê Foundation.

When established in 2007, we wanted to not only offer people traveling through Namibia an opportunity to stay somewhere that gave back to Namibia’s wildlife, but also to provide job and training opportunities in the hospitality industry to the San Bushman community.

Every person who stays at the N/a’an ku sê Lodge learns about the history of our lodge, our passion for conservation, our love for food, and leaves with a little bit of us in their hearts. More importantly, our guests help support the legacy of the people and animals we care for.

Please visit our lodge website for more information and rates.

Sustainability

Sustainability is defined as “enduring”, “supporting” or “maintaining”. At the N/a’an ku sê Lodge in Namibia we take sustainability a step further to mean “thrive” alongside “supporting”.

The N/a’an ku sê’s Lodge’s main focus is sustainability in Africa. The lodge itself is crafted from ecologically clean material including solid logs and glass to complement N/a’an ku sê’s beautiful wilderness setting. We live side-by-side with the local wildlife and guests can enjoy a range of amazing views of animals from their chalets – such as the local red hartebeest, oryx, giraffe, baboons and kudu – not to mention breath-taking sunsets in the evenings.

Our lodge is a not-for-profit eco-tourism destination, where all profits are directed straight back into supporting our charitable projects in a sustainable ecosystem under the N/a’an ku sê Foundation.

To help support the sanctuary, we donate all of our leftover food to be recycled into animal food. This helps cut down on the waste we produce, and reduces our carbon footprint, ensuring a sustainable future for Africa.

Additionally, we work hard to offer job opportunities to the San Bushman, a marginalized community in Namibia. We currently employ 45 San Bushman within the N/a’an ku sê Foundation and are proud to offer them a better future in the hospitality industry. Thanks to our efforts, two of our kitchen staff and all three of our guides have completed higher education courses.
