Set on a reserve not many miles away from the capital of Namibia, we find the most recent investment by the Zannier group, a sanctuary for biodiversity, camouflaged among the approximately 9,000 hectares of the property. After Belgium, France and Cambodia, the fourth project is the outcome of a fruitful meeting between the owner, Arnaud Zannier and the actress Angelina Jolie, who spoke to him of the possibility of occupying an exceptional setting northeast of Windhoek. In July, 2018, the idea finally began taking shape, leading to a luxurious lodge, dedicated to developing sustainable tourism based on respect for the natural environment.

Here we see a commitment to the key values that have underpinned all of Zannier’s previous projects – which take pride, above all, in their respect for tradition and a focus on a discreet and timeless elegance. In partnership with the local foundation N/a’an ku sê (also an important driving force in the preservation of the savannah in this region) the owner inaugurated this unpretentious retreat that offers us the opportunity to deliver ourselves to profound contemplation.
