Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

Superb; loved the scenery and the wildlife and this was one of the nicest places we stayed in Namibia. We went on one evening guided walk and a 4 hour morning walk, all included. Guides very knowledgeable and considerate in seeking out what we were interested in, and helping less one of us who had knee problems.

Also went on a N$440 evening drive which was rather steep, though we did see rock art, owlets and an aardwolf. Self-guided walks generally well-marked, but the markers did give out sometimes amongst the rocks and more are needed - take GPS or compass.

Good bird and mammal viewing from the restaurant, including an elephant shrew. Food excellent, but wine expensive. Cold at night, but duvets and hot water bottles meant that this was not a problem.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

It was very very cold here in June! Too cold to use the shower built into the rocks. The tents really need heat in winter BUT this was a lovely place to stay. Murray and Robert were very welcoming. The guide, Heidi, was the best of our trip and so was the chef. The choice at breakfast was amazing - try the savoury or sweet pancakes -delicicious!
We were really glad we stayed here even tho' it was so cold.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

The setting of this camp is lovely, as is the opportunity to walk directly from the site and see baboons, dassies, lovebirds etc, and the self-guided Eagle walk and the guided Sundowner walk & 6am walk were very enjoyable, and Gelasuis our guide was friendly and informative. The accommodation was the least comfortable of any on our trip - the tent flapped noisily all night in the chilly brisk wind, which also made the outside bathroom distinctly unwelcoming (unlike Hoodia there is no inside alternative). Maybe in summer the tents would be more appealing, but in early winter they spoilt an otherwise pleasant stay.

Stunning setting with great staff

Tented room very comfortable with good facilities. Layout of the site was very good with stunning views.

Guided walks very informative, especially Johnny and Koulis. The visit to Paula's cave was stunning and very enjoyable, and the staff that also attended were very good company. Food and dining service was also excellent.

Nice to have emphasis on walking and you can do self guided walks, the one we did we were able to watch a pair of Dik Dik for quite some time.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

This was our favourite place on the trip. Everything was first class from start to finish and we were looked after very well indeed, including a special birthday treat!

The tented bungalows are lovely and the views terrific.

All the staff were friendly and attentive and the food and wine excellent.

Bird feeding time at breakfast is spectacular, and being able to watch Small-spotted Genet and Porcupine over dinner is a real thrill!

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.

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.
