STOP PRESS: Unfortunately Erongo Wilderness Lodge has permanently closed, please speak to us for details or for other options in the area.
Situated in the central highlands of Namibia, it would be easy to miss Erongo Wilderness Lodge as you travel between one of Namibia’s heavy hitters, Etosha National Park and it’s capital city.
However, Erongo Wilderness Lodge works perfectly to break up the journey between the two and also as a destination in it’s own right and it is worthy of a two nights stay.
The first thing to strike you about the lodge is it’s location, set in a secluded valley access along a bumpy track adds to it’s feeling of remoteness. It’s 11 ‘tents’ are scattered among the rocky hillside and are reached by tracks or varying lengths. A family tent and a 2-tented suite are great options for families or friends travelling together.
Tucked away among the boulders is a small swimming pool and quickly you will notice some of the permanent residents of the region- the rock hyrax which scamper among the rocks around the lodge.
Meals are served in the main area which has a fantastic view over the dramatic landscape, it also has a view of a bird bath, which is particularly popular with the local wildlife. Keep a look out for the stunning rosy-faced lovebirds which are regular visitors in the afternoon.
