Auob Country Lodge

Auob Country Lodge, a green oasis in the Kalahari landscape, is situated on the banks of the dry Auob River. The small town Gochas is only 6 km away. The gem in the Kalahari offers 26 en-suite double rooms, a restaurant, a lapa, a TV room and a lounge with fireplace for chilly winter evenings. The red dunes of the Kalahari are in strong contrast to the white calcareous rocks of the valley formed by the Auob river. In an area of 8000 ha around the lodge, various antelopes, giraffe, smaller mammals and many bird species can be seen. The plants in this area are well adapted to the harsh conditions of the Kalahari. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere at the swimming pool or discover the surrounding area on foot, horseback or on a sundowner drive. A bar is at your disposal. Auob Lodge is easily accessible by road or plane. The private landing strip is suitable for various size planes (co-ordinates: S24.49 E18.46). Auob Lodge is the ideal first night stop-over on your tour to the south. Beautiful Kalahari landscape en route to Quiver Tree Forest and Keetmanshoop.
Three star rating.

Between the red vegetated dunes of the Kalahari and the jagged course of the Auob River, the green oasis of Auob Country Lodge offers warm welcomes to travellers and explorers.

On the 8,000 ha reserve surrounding Auob Country Lodge, travellers can discover the many interesting adaptations that have allowed animals to better survive in the arid conditions of the Southern Kalahari. Game drives go places where drivers know that the animals will likely be found.

The Kalahari has challenged African travellers for centuries, and all emerge from its dry reaches seeking refreshment. Auob Country Lodge specializes in Kalahari hospitality, an art refined over years of welcoming explorers and adventurers: an ice cold drink in the bar or lounge, a chance to wash away the heat and red Kalahari sand under a refreshing shower, or in the courtyard pool, plenty of shade from the bright, hot sun, and a friendly smile.
