Amani Lodge is surrounded by the Namibian veld and the wonderful Khomas Hochland Mountains. Set at an altitude of 2150 meters, it is the highest lodge in Namibia. Due to its French owners' passion for Africa's big cats and stargazing, Amani has developed into a home to number of cheetah, lion and leopard. It offers a home and rehabilitation centre to orphaned and sick animals, with the aim to rehabilitate and then re-introduce them into the wild at the earliest opportunity. For casual stargazers and serious astronomers alike, the lodge has its own observatory building, the Capella Observatory. Its claim to fame is that it has the largest amateur telescope in Africa!  The main house with a spacious open-sided lapa, boasts a large patio and an outdoor swimming pool. There is a breakfast area, a bar, and a restaurant that serves international cuisine, with a French touch of course! The male lion's roar at supper time, adds to the atmosphere and it is possible to view cheetah through the dining room windows!

Activities here include lion feeding, where guests are taken to a viewing stand, visits to Namibia's capital city, Windhoek, hiking in the mountain environment, stargazing at the Federations Starfleet during the winter months when the sky is clearest, nature walks and bird watching.
