DINING

Etosha Village Restaurant

At a typical Namibian Rural Village families are divided into three areas when dining. Traditionally one area is dedicated to men, one to women and the other for the elderly and children. When Etosha Village was designed, we remained true to this tradition and created three different dining areas at our restaurant, but of course not split into gender groups.

Etosha Village is well known for inspiring cuisine and many guests have claimed that it is the best buffet dinner experience in Namibia! You can start your day with a scrumptious buffet breakfast with an extensive selection of all the favourite delectable breakfast foods and treats.

Lunch is served a’ la carte with loads of mouth-watering dishes to choose from.

The popular buffet dinner will leave you spoiled for choice between the salads, side dishes, grilled meats and stir-fries – all prepared fresh and in front of every guest! For the perfect ending there is a range of decadent dessert sensations as well as a variety of cheeses and biscuits.

At the buffet area there is a 24 hour coffee station with a variety of coffees and teas to enjoy at any time!

Enticing lunch packs can also be ordered the evening before at reception to take along on self-drives or guided excursions to Etosha National Park.

 

Etosha Village Bar Area

The unique open-plan bar at Etosha Village is replicating the round shape of typical African-style huts usually found in traditional villages. The bar area feature a cosy fire pit to create a welcoming atmosphere and a big screen television for viewing nature programs and sporting events whilst enjoying your refreshments.

We stock a wide selection of beverages as well as an impressive collection of the best South African wines.

Be sure to taste our famous house wine, the Spotty Cellar Collection, and be entertained by the story of our very own resident zebra, Spotty.

The Bar is always open during service hours.

 

 

FACILITIES AND ACTIVITIES

Etosha Village Pool Area

The large garden and pool area create a relaxing environment at Etosha Village. A refreshing dip in the large 4 x 10m pool will go a long way after a hot day of sightseeing in the park. A medium rounded pool is ideally situated for parents to cool off while they can keep a close eye on their children in the adjacent kiddie pool. There are quite a few spots around the pool area with comfortable sunbeds to relax with a good book or to enjoy a few cocktails and beverages.

Pool towels are available at reception. Reading material and sunblock are available to purchase from the Cuca Shop.

The pool is only available to paying guests and is used at one’s own risk. Children must be under the supervision of a responsible adult at all times.

 

Etosha Village Cuca Shop

Next to the reception area there is another African style hut (rondavel) hosting the ‘one stop Cuca shop’. The term “Cuca Shop” originated from the local languages for a shop that sells everything.

The Etosha Village Cuca shop stocks a little bit of everything and also have cooldrinks, ice-cream, reading materials, curios, cell phone airtime and much more!

Africa

Africa is the second largest continent, approximately three times the size of the United States. The African continent measures 5,200 miles from north to south, and at its broadest point, is nearly as wide as it is long.

 

Interesting Africa Facts – People of Africa

The African continent has the second largest population in the world, at about one billion people.
Well over one thousand languages are spoken by the people of Africa. Some estimates put this number closer to two thousand.
The largest religion in Africa is Islam, followed by Christianity.
The African population is approximately 14.72% of the world’s population (as of 2009).
The oldest human remains ever discovered were found in Ethiopia. They are approximately 200,000 years old.

Interesting Africa Facts – Africa Landforms

The longest river in the world, the Nile (4,132 miles), is located in Africa.
Africa has the world’s largest desert, the Sahara, which is almost the size of the United States.
Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in Africa; it is 355 feet high and one mile wide.
Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the continent. It towers over 19,300 feet, which is so tall that glaciers can be found at its summit even though the mountain is near the equator.
Madagascar is the largest island in Africa and the fourth largest island in the world. It is in the Indian Ocean off the East coast of Africa.

Interesting Africa Facts – The continent

Africa is the second largest continent on earth, approximately 11.7 million square miles.
Africa straddles the equator and is the only continent to extend from the northern temperate zone to the southern temperate zone.
Africa is the hottest continent on earth.
Sudan is Africa’s largest country (968,000 square miles).
Africa covers 6 percent of the earth’s total surface and 20.4 percent of the total land area.
Cairo is the continents largest city.
Long before humans were around (the early Mesozoic Era) Africa was joined to the other continents in a massive continent called Pangaea. Over millions of years this huge continent broke apart shaping the world landscape as we know it today.

Interesting Africa Facts – Animals

The worlds tallest animal, the giraffe, lives in Africa.
The fastest land animal in the world, the cheetah, lives in Africa.
Africa is home to the worlds largest reptile, the Nile crocodile.

Climate

Africa is bordered by:

the Atlantic Ocean to the west
the Indian Ocean to the east
the Mediterranean to the north.
A variety of climate zones

Unsurprisingly, such a large land mass has a wide variety of climates:

Tropical rainforest – found particularly in the centre of the continent and also along the eastern coast of Madagascar.
Humid sub-tropical – found in the southwest.
Mediterranean – mostly on the northwest (Mediterranean) coast and in the southeast
Savannah – found to the north and south where it replaces the rain forest. There are distinct wet and dry seasons.
Steppe – away from the Equator, to the north and south, the savannah grades into drier steppe.
Desert – here there is little rainfall and wide differences between day and night temperatures. The Sahara in the north is the world’s largest desert (only three countries have a greater area – Russia, Canada and China). The Kalahari in southern Africa covers an area larger than France.
Highland – largely found in the east, below the Horn of Africa.
Marine – largely in the southeast.

Record temperatures

The highest temperature recorded anywhere in the world was at Al’Aziziya, Libya, which reached 57.8°C (136°F) on September 13, 1922. The lowest recorded temperature in Africa is -24°C (-11°F) at Ilfrane, Morocco, on February 11, 1935.

Highs and lows

Temperatures are highest in desert areas, particularly the Sahara. They are coolest across the south and in mountainous areas and plateaux highlands.

Rainfall varies dramatically across Africa. The northern half of the continent contains large areas of arid desert, where annual rainfall can be just 50mm. But in central areas of the continent, tropical rainforests can receive over 4,000mm each year (Scotland has an average of around 1,500mm).

As the climate warms, the Sahara desert is thought to be advancing south at a rate of 600 metres each year. Deforested areas are more at risk; where trees have been cleared for farm land or burning wood, bare earth is blown away and replaced by sand. This process is known as ‘desertification’.

Changing weather patterns

However, patterns of weather are changing, both locally and across the continent.

For example, droughts are becoming more common across the semi-arid Sahel region (which stretches across countries such as Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad and Sudan). Scientists think a rise in water temperatures in the nearby Gulf of Guinea has shifted the flow of rain clouds southwards.
