About Gabus Game Ranch

Ideally situated only three & a half hours drive from Windhoek, halfway to Rundu, and 2 hours from Namutoni/Etosha,; Gabus Game Ranch offers lodge accommodation, close to Otavi in Namibia, and invites you to an oasis of green garden, blue swimming pool and a cool lapa. Beyond the pool, the first signs of African wildlife, leisurely enjoying a drink or frolicking around the salt rock, may be viewed. Gabus is ideally situated en route to the Etosha National Park or to the Caprivi. Whether at the beginning or end of your journey, Gabus offers the perfect setting to linger and enjoy all the country has to offer. Here you can enjoy beautifully, well-kept lodge settings amidst nature and all it has to offer.Gabus, the name derived from the Bushman language meaning 'the place of water', is located in a land usually associated with desert and dry landscape. The lodge has risen on the 6,000-hectare farming land close to Otavi, This is the place where the weary traveller may stop for an unexpected refreshment and revitalization of body and soul.Luxuriously elegant rooms invite guests to linger and enjoy. All rooms look out onto the natural water hole which is frequented all day long by some of the abundant game found in the region. Accommodation consists of a variety of different rooms, all en-suite with showers and fitted with air-conditioners. High quality bedding of only cotton and linen sheeting is used for that extra luxurious sleeping experience.Kudu, waterbuck, impala and gnu are hardly disturbed by the movement of visitors around the entertainment area, thus watching the animals arrive for a drink and lick at the saltrock is one of the most relaxing and memorable experiences of a stay. To enjoy this pleasurable experience, you have the choice of witnessing nature from the solitude of your own room, or alternatively with friends and fellow visitors from the lapa at the pool.Dinner is served on an elegant table setting where once again guests have the choice of eating intimately by themselves or together as a group with fellow guests, where new friendships are made, experiences exchanged and just a jolly friendly atmosphere prevails, where food is lovingly prepared with only fresh ingredients. The drinking hole is lit by night for nature lovers who can’t seem to get enough of watching the various movements during the night.
