Erongo Wilderness Lodge

About Erongo Wilderness Lodge

Where the ecosystems of the desert, mountain and bushveld meet, Erongo Wilderness Lodge sits in a dramatic setting, full of remarkable diversity. Surrounded by rugged granite boulders and stunning scenery, the camp has just 10 tented chalets, encircled by the Erongo Mountains, within the area of an ancient volcanic crater.

Flanked by the Namib Desert to the west and woodland savannah to the east, here you will find a relaxed and friendly lodge, with stunning views and great birding.

Chalets are comfortable and built on stilts, tucked away between boulders for privacy.

Lodge details

Style

An intimate camp with comfortable stilted, Meru style tents.

Setting

15 kilometres west of Omaruru in Namibia’s Central Highlands.

Accommodation & Facilities

Chalets each have their own niche amongst the rocks, set against the granite formations with superb views. The 10 Meru style, en-suite tents are simply furnished, pitched under the shade of thatch roofs, with their own private deck and mini bar. Bathrooms are cleverly designed and built around the rocks and trees.

The restaurant is set atop a granite hill with stunning views of the surrounding mountainous landscape, and the waterhole below allows for great wildlife viewing. There is also the ‘Mokoro’ Bar, a swimming pool and a relaxation deck.

Dining

The cuisine is excellent with 4 course dinners and a tasty brunch.

Activities

Nature walks come highly recommended as it is the best way to explore the Erongo Mountains. Set out at dusk along the mountains tops, or at sundown for a completely different perspective. You can set off and explore the area alone if you wish. Nature drives are available with local expert guides and places you may visit include Paula’s Cave which is filled with beautiful, ancient rock art. The birding here is renowned for being some of the best and you can spot anything from the tiniest sunbird to the huge soaring raptors.

Child Policy

Children are welcome and will enjoy the camp so long as they like walking.
