Etosha South

Sixteen KM south of Etosha National Park (as the crow flies), Tandala Ridge has the same natural habitat as the park, while offering game drives in open vehicles and guided walking safaris to bring you up close and personal to Eland, Kudu, Oryx, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest as well as the smaller Steenbok, Duiker and Dik-Dik.

Private, quiet and reasonably priced, Tandala Ridge has only two chalets making it ideal for couples or families. Off the beaten path, on the D 2695, Tandala Ridge is an ideal stop-over between Etosha National Park (75km) and the northwest Kunene Region or the southwest Twyfelfontein/Brandberg area. Tandala Ridge is located on Windpoort Farm where the chalets overlook a waterhole and a vast valley of game with the hills of Etosha in the distance.

Connect to the dawn of life
Built on 650 Million year old stromatolite reef, Tandala Ridge is immersed in Pre-History, making a connection to the time when life first began. Stromatolites are earth´s oldest fossils and Windpoort Farm has more well- preserved varieties than anywhere else in Namibia. Hike to ancient house sites littered with Paleolithic spear points while you imagine what it was like to be a hunter-gatherer in this, amazing example of the cradle of mankind as well as the cradle of life itself.
