Onduli Enclave

Onduli Enclave, also named after the resident giraffe of the area, is the privately serviced and stand-alone villa addition to Onduli Ridge which is separate from the main lodge and will be run independently from it. Onduli epitomizes mindful environmental integration and consideration, and the Onduli Enclave is a venue that allows guests the luxury of being at one with nature, whilst enjoying the ambience of Namibia’s most exclusive and luxurious villa. Onduli Enclave is built high up against a south facing granite outcrop affording magnificent views of the Brandberg, Namibia’s highest mountain to the south, the dispersed cathedral-like granite inselbergs to the southeast, and the Doros Crater to the west.

The villa exudes refinement and meticulous attention to detail meeting all requirements, from private sun decks with individual wood-fired hot tubs and shaded outside seating areas at each of the three suites, double inside and outside rain showers, private pool, pizza boma with a fire circle, magnificent art installations and plenty of places to relax and laze, all connected by floating wooden decks. A private lounge and dining room, with an interactive open plan kitchen, make up the communal area, along with numerous outside areas for sitting and relaxing. World class meals prepared by a private chef and served by a private butler combine with the exceptional activities offered by a private guide to provide a genuinely unforgettable stay of exceptional quality, while everything blends effortlessly into the natural surroundings.

The Enclave blends into its surroundings perfectly, maximizing the views of this most extraordinary landscape, and every space becomes a viewpoint whether from the bed, the desk, or the bathroom. Frameless glass stacking doors can be opened completely, blurring the lines between the indoors and nature, or closed when needed to take account of personal preference or local weather conditions.

Three fully climate-controlled suites have super king-sized beds which can be rolled out onto your private deck for a night under a billion stars as required. Each suite also has a sleeper couch to accommodate a child, and there is an interleading lounge / children’s room between two of the suites that is available for larger families.

We recommend extended stays to get the full benefit of time spent at the Onduli Enclave and to explore one of Namibia’s most remarkable and amazingly diverse areas. Your time with us will be both exhilarating and life enriching, and it can include nature drives and walks as well as excursions to track unique desert wildlife. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein is within reach of an afternoon Solar E-Bike ride, and you have the option to ‘wheel’ your bed out to spend the night under a blanket of a billion stars.
