Somewhat unusually, the story of Omaanda begins with a chance meeting - a conversation with film star and activist Angelina Jolie. The actress had visited another property in Cambodia, and told tales of an African venue that should be preserved and maintained in just the same way. That place was Omaanda, which is positioned in a beautiful natural setting within the Zannier Reserve in Namibia. The hotel now works in close collaboration with the Naankusê Foundation to play a vital role in animal conservation.
Elegant, exclusive accommodation
The aim of Omaanda is to unite local traditions and wildlife with the incomparable location, while offering the ultimate in luxury and seclusion to those who come to stay. To this end, 10 deluxe huts are positioned in the heart of the reserve, offering a location that is in complete harmony with the environment while offering elegant, exclusive accommodation. Huts at Omaanda are built in Namibian style, in a rounded shape with charming thatched roofs. The colour palette used reflects the natural tones of sand and earth, with distinctly African touches such as finely crafted artworks and furniture. Each spacious hut has a fireplace, walk-in dressing room, large bath and shower and a private terrace affording guests views over the nearby lake and hills.
Dining at Omaanda involves the use of local, sustainable produce, used to create meals from breakfast to dinner that are appetising, attractive and nourishing. Breakfast is ordered from an a la carte menu, while lunch consists of sharing platters. The daily highlight is a four-course evening feast, including vegetarian as well as meat and fish dishes.
Safari and spa
As well as game drives and other animal encounters, some time at Omaanda can be spent at the sumptuous spa. Treatments combine traditional Namibian healing techniques and modern therapy methods to unite and balance the mind, body and soul.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
