About Kansimba

Kansimba Lodge - Namibia

KANSIMBA - "PLACE of the LION". Past research confirms that the region was once populated with lions many years ago. Kansimba is nested into a set of surrounding mountain ranges from which several river runs past into the lower lying central region, supporting valuable habitats and nourishment for the antelopes that populate the region today.

Predators that are now still common and can be spotted on Kansimba regularly during day or night with our cameras include Leopards, Cheetahs, Caracal and the African Wild Cat. An interesting fact is that from the Hyena species, the BROWN Hyena has moved into this region to stay and can often be seen before sunrise and after sunset.

Several drinking holes and dams situated over the entire farm land provide adequate drinking water needs for the antelopes. Some of the water holes are equipped with hides to attract visitors and photographers for a closer view of the different species that will visit that waterhole.

Enjoy our game drives through the bush or hike with us in the mountains where the bushmen once lived hundreds of years ago. Kansimba is the perfect getaway and offers something for everyone. Let the bush rejuvenate and inspire you.

You will always experience total excitement during your stay, even if your day was not filled with what you expected to spot during a game drive you took part on. At the lodge you will see live pictures of the scenes that can be seen throughout the night at the different water holes. Up to eight cameras are installed at different drinking holes to capture and transmit the data via a network of antennas directly to your TV screen and the screen installed in the 'Lapa' where community viewing for all has been provided for.

Kansimba Game Lodge offers wonderful accomodation and meals, famous hospitality, an abundance of wildlife and birds, professional guides and trackers and breathtaking scenery.

Discover the freedom of wide open spaces, clear blue skies and fresh clean air. Enjoy nature at its wildest and most unspoilt. A stay at the Kansimba Game Lodge is the perfect antidote for the stresses and pressures of modern living.

The official language of Namibia is English, but German, Afrikaans and native languages are also widely spoken. Staff at Kansimba Game Lodge are fluent in English, Afrikaans and German.

Immunizations 

Not necessary when one visits Kansimba but we recommend that anyone visiting the Etosha National Park take every precaution against being bitten by mosquitoes.

Contact your nearest travel clinic regarding anti-malaria medication, as this varies from country to country and region to region.
