A three-day trip takes us this time significantly further (75 km) into the interior of Namibia. Once again, we embark on this excursion with our friends from the sailing yacht Paroo, Linda and Tony. Our destination is the unique Omaruru Game Lodge, which was designed and built by Thomas Domenig Senior, a Swiss architect from Chur, with great love for animals. He fulfilled his childhood dream of founding a wildlife reserve and lodge.

The lodge is located in a large wildlife reserve. Right in front of the restaurant is a small lake, a popular meeting place for a variety of species. From our table on the veranda of the restaurant, we can watch the animals that come to drink and bathe at the waterhole. It is a unique and fascinating experience.

On the second day, we take part in a safari through the approximately 4000-hectare wildlife reserve. Here we see not only zebras and many species of antelopes, but also elephants and rhinos. Our favorite is the two-week-old, clumsy rhino baby.

Our stay at the Omaruru Game Lodge is an unforgettable experience for us, which has brought us closer to the beauty and diversity of Namibia´s wildlife in a very special way.#
