The word Epako is a Herero word meaning 'the corner in a mountain range'. The lodge is nestled against a hillside overlooking the Epako River and surrounded by dense African bush. The area is home to a wide variety of mammals, including white rhino and leopard, and a host of birdlife which visit a number of nearby waterholes frequently.
The lodge's deluxe rooms have king or twin beds. The Loft and Junior Suites have separate showers and free standing bathtubs, while the River Suite and the Loft Suite have separate living and sleeping areas which are very generously sized. The rooms all have air-conditioning, mini-bar, satellite TV system, mosquito nets, a tea/coffee station and garden or bush views from your private terrace.
The restaurant overlooks a floodlit waterhole where oryx, zebra, kudu, giraffe and rhino are regular nightly visitors. The chefs at Epako will prepare a combination of Namibian and French cuisine. There is also a bar and lounge with satellite TV as well as a swimming pool, large gardens, tennis courts, souvenir shop, table tennis and a small aviary.
