Retreat location

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park can be seen all the way from space and is one of Southern Africa’s most popular wildlife parks. The Park spans an area of 22,270 square kilometers and gets its name from the large Etosha salt pan which is almost entirely within the park.

It is home to four of the ‘Big five’ and houses hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros.

Swakopmund

The picturesque coastal town of Swakopmund was established by German colonists in 1892. With its German history, some buildings have German colonial architecture accompanied with endless German cuisine and a small part of its population is still German-speaking.
