Wonderful location

Erongo was a very relaxing, informal and welcoming place. It was really enjoyable and could have stayed longer.

We had a very knowledgable guide for the morning walk.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

A very different situation - mountains, rocks and huge boulders. We would have preferred one of the other tents with a better view.

It was very hot and there was a lot of irritating insects.

Not enough to do. Bird walk disappointing and very few animals.

A wonderful experience

This came at the end of a superb two week holiday but was still the highlight. We would have loved to stayed here for many days.

Genuine welcome from staff at the outset and Brian and Adele appeared so at peace with what they are doing. Fantastic location and some of the best food we had eaten. One of the highlights after dinner was Brian showing us the African wild cat, genet, resident porcupines and geckos.

Accommodation great, feels a bit more like proper camping, only a little draughty and cool at night but that was only because we didn't put the flaps down because we were too tired! Useful mni bar. Enjoyed the Sundowner and the long, long walk the next day. Our guide was excellent. This is a must stay location.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

We liked Erongo very much. Perhaps not quite as spectacular as some of the other locations, but it was pleasant and attractive, and we enjoyed our guided walk.

A good place to reflect

Our last port of call, a lovely place to get over the frantic, all hours of day & night, animal watching of Etosha and just relax.

The scenery changing with the light through the day was quite enough to stay and watch from around the lodge. We enjoyed the trip to Paula's Cave it was a beautiful setting for our last sundowner in Namibia.

A unique mountain hideaway

This was an excellent final night's stay in Namibia. The location within the rocks and the walk up the kopje for sundowners, accompanied in the distance by the baboons more than compensated for our feelings of regret at our imminent departure.

The dining was first class and the most restaurant-like of all the places we stayed in. There was a superb ambience and, even though the big game was now behind us, there were unexpected treats in the wildlife (porcupine, rock hyrax, amazingly coloured birds etc) which were enhanced by the manager's personal enthusiasm and attention to all of his guests.

Indeed, special mention should be made of the manager and his wife who were very attentive to everybody's needs and we spent a brilliant time relaxing after dinner, listening to his experiences.

Noises of animals were heard at night, which could be unnerving for some!

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

This beautifully located lodge is a little paradise. Very friendly and enthousiastic staff (hosts, guides, drivers as well as the staff in the restaurant !) and a wonderful area to stay.

Very beautiful nature! We saw for example porcupines here, and very big lizzards, many different species of antilopes and lots of 'dassies'.

The little pool near the 'breakfastroom' is also very nice: many species of birds can be found here, like the grey hornbill and many lovebirds. Very special too are the rockpaintings in a cave in the area.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

We only stayed one night and I wish we had stayed longer, about 2.5 - 3 hours from Windhoek it is a good place to start or finish, the views from the accomodation are superb, the trip to see the nearby rock paintings and the sun set over the mountains was excellent.
