Amenities & Facilities
Massinga Beach sits above a stretch of endless, remarkably private beach overlooking the azure Indian Ocean.
Far from the madding crowd and offering barefoot luxury, the Lodge caters for honeymooners, romantics, families and those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
"If our dream comes true, I will give this name to our lodge", said Georg Zimmermann to his wife Uli and his partners as they watched the magnificent sundown in 1993 on Fischers Pan. The dream came true and the Zimmermanns managed the lodge with their former partners Chris and Helmut until 2002 and put their heart and soul into it. At that time it was only the third lodge in the north of Namibia. In spite of considerable logistical problems to get building material into the bush, the construction period was only 6 months. After an absence of 5 years, Uli and Georg decided to do the job themselves again as Chris and Helmut retired from the business. It was not difficult to get the former team together again, because the Aoba Lodge is a paradise for all of us.
The lodge consists of four free standing Heritage Bungalows with air-conditioning, 3 Bush Suites that each have two rooms with an inter-leading bathroom that can accommodate 4 adults. Three new Explorer Bungalows have been added and each boast privacy and seclusion. We have a Honeymoon Bungalow that is extremely private and secluded that has a lovely double hammock in the trees and both an outdoor shower and bath!
The large twin beds have separate mattresses and a large mosquito net. All bungalows have a private terrace with seating, shower / toilet, mini safe, "bush-minibar”, air conditioner and tea / coffee facilities. For the winter season there are heating fans available. There is a swimming pool and a thatched bar, lounge and dining area that overlooks a small waterhole and free Wi-Fi.
On most nights dinner is served under the starts and no meal will be complete if it didn't include a tour of the well stocked wine cellar. Here wines can be tasted and selected to compliment your meal. An ideal safari-home away from home!
