Erongo Wilderness Lodge is super

Great place, great people, stunning scenery - loved it. Probably the most luxurious 'tent' of the holiday in an amazing location.

Expert Africa comments

The Trip Advisor review referred to here says: There are lots of other wonderful places in Namibia to see wildlife. While not really designed for game viewing, Erongo Wilderness Lodge is a stunning place to relax, breathe and enjoy fabulous hospitality in amazing surroundings. Each room is a hugely luxurious and beautiful tent - the best tent you will have ever seen! - on a platform, built into the side of a hill, with all the home comforts you could wish for. The en suite bathrooms are unique, partially open to the world but at the same time entirely discreet, and offering perhaps the world's best view from a shower or loo!! The restaurant provided the most sumptuous meals we had in our entire Namibian trip (breakfast was a complete joy) and the service was impeccable. They could not have done more to make us feel welcome. If you ever wanted to really "get away from it all" and still have wifi, Erongo is THE place to go. Our only mistake - we only booked for one night!!!!!!

A beautiful place

Such a gorgeous special place. We arrived by lunchtime thankfully so we could enjoy the setting. Peaceful and a wonderful stopover. What a setting for a restaurant!

We all agreed that we would have enjoyed 2 nights......although no big animals it is the walks, and setting as well as fab food and quality of everything. The staff were all helpful and very friendly too.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

We really enjoyed Erongo Wilderness Lodge - the scenery, the walks, the guides, the dining room help, the privacy and remoteness.

The food was excellent and quite possibly the best of the several camps we visited in Namibia and Botswana.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

Quirky. Fun.

Too isolated for our one night stay. We had to park away from our accommodation which was not convenient for packing up on our last night.

Very cold at night in a tented room without the "sides" covered. Yes we could have covered them ourselves but this was looked after elsewhere. Food served outside under the stars - fine but could not see our food at all!!

Added inconvenient mileage for our last night and still a long way to the airport. Particularly rough road. Would have been extremely difficult for people with less than average mobility. Should point this out.

However a very nice free guided walk to the top of the rocks for sundowners!

Very Informal and Thoroughly recommended!

We had a great stay here. The position of the lodge is beautiful and the staff were helpful without being intrusive.

The tented accommodation was great fun, a wilderness feel with Hot Water Bottles and all mod cons in a rocky desert valley. Perfect.

Dinner was very tasty and the cakes for tea were particularly good and served in generous amounts, while the views from the dining area were lovely.

The general ambience very relaxed on the surface but still very well organised.

NOTE: We loved the trip to the cave paintings, but it is not for the unfit and you absolutely need appropriate shoes to cross the boulders. One of our party is not particularly well and also found the walk up the long steps to the dining room quite hard work although the rest of us were fine.

We were very sorry to have to leave so soon.

A must stay place - 2 nights minimum

Heaven sent lodge. Everything was excellent and we were very glad to spend two nights.

The walks were really enjoyable and should be joined. A place to return to.
