A lovely place to relax before coming home

Spectacular rooms, fantastic location, great walks up and over the granite boulders, absolutely delightful staff.

Great bird life and hundreds of adorable love birds around the restaurant at dawn. We even saw a caracol which has taken to visiting the waterhole every night.

So glad we stayed here for 2 nights - it was a perfect end to our holiday.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

If you like walking then this is a good place for a couple of nights. 2WD cars are parked at a distance from the site needing a 4WD pickup - can give a feeling of remoteness.

Celebrated birthday there, but outside veranda was already filled very early for dinner. Needed to ask for a table to be 'specially' placed outside otherwise we would have had to eat alone inside :-( but we got a birthday cake :-)

Very hot place with no escape from the heat.
Great trip to the cave paintings.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

A lovely and very different experience. The only drawback was that most of the walks were cancelled due to heavy rain.

Friendly and helpful staff.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

Lovely location. All the staff were extremely helpful.

Lovely sundowner and early morning walks with the guides were great fun, and we learnt a lot.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge-Great Setting

We were most taken by the setting at Erongo Wilderness Lodge Our trip to the site in the 4by4 set the stage. Our comfortable chalet provided us with great views. We went on a walk to watch the sunset and experienced out first Sundowner. We saw our first animals visiting the waterhole as we were having dinner.

It was a great introduction to uniqueness of Namibia. We only wish we could have had a longer stay.

Worth more time than we had there

Unfortunately (thanks to a flight delay), we had only one night at Erongo rather than the two we had planned. This was a shame as it is certainly worth more than one night. This is a very comfortable and well-run camp in an interesting location, with a good birding proposition (there was a large party of American birders staying there while we were there), as well as a scattering of mammal species.

Our guide, Johnny, with whom we did a couple of walks, was very up on his birds and assisted us in finding and indentifying several endemics. It is also very conveniently placed between other popular destinations, with good road access.

Unbelievable.

I want to lie and say this place was awful, mainly because I want to keep it to myself. Even on my honeymoon, I cannot say I stayed anywhere near as amazing as this place. I also think we got the best hut from what we could see (no. 10). The staff were fantastic, without hassling. The afternoon tea and breakfast was superb quality.

The room was luxurious with fantastic views and we had chairs, tables and even a mattress all the way around our balcony in order to get a 360 view of our surroundings depending on the sun. We did all the recommended hikes, some alone, some with a guide. All beautiful, but not really challenging. Dinner was great quality. I just did not want to leave. The bathroom in the room is located outside and makes it all the more special.

There were so many things the staff surprised us with, but I'm not going to spoil it for everyone else by revealing what it was. Do stay here and spend the bit of extra money. It is worth it over and over again. Also, do the sundowner walk and make use of all they have to offer. Namibia at its best.

Heavenly time at Erongo

Because of the recent fire at Erongo, all the other tourists had (foolishly) cancelled. This meant we had the remarkable good luck to have the whole of Erongo to ourselves. This was an amazing place and a fabulous experience.

The fire had not had any negative impact on the facilities and had been dealt with very well. The place is stunning, incredible scenery, lovely walks, great guide (Johnny) and beautiful tented accommodation.
