Wish we had a longer stay

We only had one night here, and wished we could have squeezed in two nights. We did really manage to take advantage of the 'inclusive' walking and completed two short walks.

The room was great, particularly the shower and the outdoor terrace.

The restaurant/bar area (outdoors) was stunning and a great new addition to the lodge.

Staff were good, and food was excellent. It was lovely to be able to have game cooked as requested (medium rare!).

Erongo Wilderness Lodge

We had a very enjoyable early morning sunrise walk which was very informative and well worth doing.

Erongo was a great place to stay to break up the journey from Etosha to Windhoek, completely different landscape seeing a wonderful contrast to the Namib Desert, Skeleton Coast and Etosha.

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.

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.
