Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

only 2 negatives about this stunning place,
1) The beds could benefit with mosquito nets.
2) They could do with a way for arriving guest`s to contact the lodge, if their is nobody at the parking area it is a bit of a trek to get to the reception.

But these are only slight niggles, we loved the place.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

One of the best places we stayed on this trip. Amazing location and views, great walks and definitely the best food we had in any lodge in Namibia. Excellent service all round.

Amazing Experien ce in the Granite Mountains

Amazing situation inthe mountains with the walkways to the cabins yet very close to the main road.
Very good for those who like walks with excellent guides and marked paths for those who want to walk on their own. All these included in the price.
Very kind and helpful staff,very friendly.
Quite a lot of wild life with the Dassies and baboons
Many colourful birds and people to identify them
Food really excellent ,the best in Namibia.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

Again, a lovely hotel in a great location. We really enjoyed the sundowner walk.

It was a shame we had to go home and didn't have more time there. The managers were new and very friendly and helpful.

Fab place to end our trip.

Relaxing

This was our last stop at the end of a three week trip and we used it to relax prior to the journey home. Different from the lodges we had stayed at in the sense that Erongo has tents set up under permanent thatched covers (same principle as a car port) with a rear entrance into a built bathroom with shower. It's all a matter of choice but 2 nights was enough for us in accommodation as simple as this though there are absolutely no complaints and it was very clean.

Service was friendly (though the lady who meets you and looks after luggage could do with a few more days at the charm school) and Brian the manager was always around to make sure you were happy. The food was OK and there was always a choice for main course at dinner. Activities are low key and we did nothing except a self-guided walk on the property.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

We found Erongo Wilderness Lodge the perfect spot to wind down and relax before leaving Namibia. The tented chalets are quite unique and very comfortable, set amidst the scenic valley. We'll never forget seeing a shooting star over the mountains while sitting on the deck one evening.

We really enjoyed one of the included walks, and found the the guide not only to be very knowledgeable about the plants, animals and geology, but by adding a bit of humor now and then, greatly added to our enjoyment of the walk

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

A very good standard across the board, relaxed style and very welcoming.

The drive from Windhoek is not long or demanding, the activities are not too strenuous, so a good place to acclimatise at the start of the holiday.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

Excellent location, service, food and walks.

Staying there and talking to the guide about his life, family, etc. as well as the wildlife and scenery proved a great introduction to Namibia and we only wished that we could have had a second night there (it had not been possible to organize this at the planning stage).
