A friendly, community owned lodge with possibly the best views in Namibia
On the edge of the Grootberg Plateau, almost 1,700 metres above sea level, the lodge is about a 5 hour drive from Swakopmund and about 4 hours from Etosha’s Andersson Gate.
Accommodation & Facilities
Accommodation is in rock chalets, built from the local rocks found around Grootberg and topped with thatched roofing. Inside, rooms are clean, crisp and uncomplicated, kept light and airy with white washed walls and wooden furnishings. There are no mosquito nets, air-conditioning or fans, however the rooms remain relatively cool.
The main area has a large, neutral coloured lounge area and there is a small bar and dining area. Tea and coffee is available throughout the day on a ‘help yourself’ basis. The swimming pool has amazing views over the Klip Valley.
Meals are tasty and flexible with timing, served both indoors and outdoors.
These include tracking desert-adapted elephants and black rhino, scenic drives to the Klip River and visits to a Himba Village.
Children are welcome; however the ground is uneven in places so we would recommend it to those of a more mature age.
