For a seamless safari experience, service and convenience are at the heart of Wilderness Safaris’ life-changing journeys. Flying into the African bush is an integral part of the safari experience, and while waiting for the next leg of a trip, or a connecting flight to a camp may be mundane, the Wilderness lounges provide a comfortable spot to while away the wait. With every detail carefully thought out, we have dedicated personnel on hand to ensure that all our guests’ needs and comfort are met.

From the moment the guests arrive at the airport, whether on an international flight, a connecting flight from a camp or from a transfer, the Wilderness team is on hand to ensure the transition is smooth. Our exclusive airport lounges provide Wilderness guests with a peaceful environment in which they can relax, freshen up, connect, recharge, and prepare for the next stage of their journey.
Welcome to Windhoek
The recently refurbed Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek, Namibia, has also seen an upgrade of the Wilderness Safaris lounge. Located in the International Arrivals hall, the lounge is spacious and comfortable. With Wi-Fi, guests can connect with the world while waiting to connect with the wilderness. There’s filtered drinking water, a variety of teas and a bean-to-cup coffee machine, as well as lots of reading material to pass the time. And, the airport team will meet and greet the guests off of their flight, and assist them with onward arrangements . The team will also help with checking itineraries or printing documents like PCR tests. There are storage facilities to lock away excess luggage, and extra bags, should the guests need to repack into a smaller soft-sided one.
