It's another gorgeous sunset at Epacha Game Lodge & Spa, which stands atop a hill on the rolling Namibian savanna, amid its own 51,900-acre preserve. To make the most of this grand setting, you'll stay in the spacious Royal Impala Lodge, a private villa set apart from the main property. The turn-of-last-century furniture and decor transport you back to colonial times, while the swimming pool and butler service would be the envy of any Victorian explorer.
Epacha Game Lodge & Spa has 18 thatch-roofed luxury chalets, each with a private balcony and second open-air shower. This may be the bush, but creature comforts are abundant, from the cigar lounge and wine cellar to the Mystique Spa, whose amenities include a sauna, Jacuzzi, and steam room.
You'll also see a profusion of wildlife in Epacha Game Preserve, which shelters endangered species like black rhino and sable antelope. At your request, game drives go farther afield to teeming Etosha National Park.
