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.

Erongo - baboons and wonderful birds

We spent two nights at Erongo on the way from Etosha to Solitaire, and it truly felt like stepping sideways out of the rest of the world. You need a 4x4 to drive up to the entrance (or park lower down and catch a ride), and the tented lodges are sited in a valley between three towering koppies that is its own self-contained little world.

The food is excellent, the lodges are incredibly comfortable and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Dinner on the patio outside the restaurant was excellent, and so was a whole day spent lazing and birdwatching. There are baboons in the hills all around and towards sunset they come back from foraging to groom and play dominance games in the rocks all around.

Two days was too short.

Lovely Setting

Excellent setting, beautiful accommodation.

Loz and Mart knew the hosts from previous encounters - they used to run a lodge in Zamibia.

Not a lot going on, wouldn't recommend the game drive - didn't see anything!

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

Truly wonderful and we had a really lovely time.

They made a real effort to help us celebrate Valentines day and a 50'th birthday.

The location and surrounding boulders are really spectacular and we were blessed with really lovely weather - what a great last day in Namibia for us.

Excellent Erongo

We loved Erongo and I think we were particularly lucky with Tent 6: a long walk but worth it for the wonderful views. The tents are really roomy and comfortable.

The guides there (we had Kulis - spelling?) are knowledgeable and fun but even the waiters are bird experts.

The evening it rained and rained, a member of staff came up to offer us an umbrella so we could get to dinner. It is a great place for bird-watchers.
