Nowhere like this on earth!

Erongo Wilderness Lodge is set in the most stunning location, within the deep red rocks in the most natural setting. You had to drive up the bare rock for the last few hundred metres to get there (4wd needed, or they would give you a lift if needed).
The tented accommodation was fabulous with a private location and semi-outdoor bathroom which I loved! The balcony was perfect for evening sundowner drinks and the room had all the amenities you need.

Meals at the cosy main lodge (with open fire) were delicious with great service.

I so wish we'd had an extra day here to make the most of it and spend time taking in the views and walking in the surrounding area.

Quiet Backwater

Excellent breakfast, great tray of fruit and yoghurts etc, and freshly made pan cakes.

Dinner was good. Just had glass of house wine each, which tasted good, but turned out to be the most expensive on the whole trip in Namibia by a distance.

Setting for meals is good , and enjoyed watching the rosie faced lovebirds while eating breakfast.

Did not enjoy driving up the over the rocks at post 6pm (pitch black)to the Lodge. This issue was raised with the Duty Manager and passed onto to the Co-owner.

Room/tents are different, but may be draughty if the wind is up.

The location is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties to the tents or up to the restaurant.

In summary a pleasant spot away from it all.

Attractive lodge

Erongo Wilderness Lodge is very attractively set in the Erongo hills. The individual tents are very luxurious - the only challenge being which of the several individual terraces one choses to drink one's beer.

The main lodge is attractively situated and the food excellent.

Erongo is strong on birds - the only game we saw were klipspringer and baboons.

It offers both guided and self-guided walks.

Relatively tame but very well done with beautiful views.

Enjoyable walks from Erongo Wilderness Lodge

We only spent a day at Erongo Wilderness Lodge on the way to the Airport. However we had an excellent time in this unusual, way out place. The welcome was friendly, the room exceptional, the food very good and the guided walk we had at sunset was brilliant. Lovely birds and animals too.

Truly an amazing Location in Erongo.

Erongo offers an unforgettable experience in a location that has to be seen to be believed. The whole experience from location to the lodges, and food ,and the walks and the drive to see the rock engravings were amazing.

The management at Erongo were fantastic, as well as the staff, and the guides. I would strongly recommend this lodge to anyone.

The Erongo mountains and the lodges will live in our memories for a long time.

Noisy walkways

This lodge occupies a stunning location in the Erongo Mountains. It offers several excellent walking trails over the rocky hills.

Unfortunately, one of the main trails was unaccessible due to overgrowth that had not yet been cleared. The chalets are spacious and very comfortable.

However, we were unlucky to be given a chalet (number 14?) close to the reception area with wooden walkways passing nearby. A noisy tour group and people rolling their suitcases then spoiled our peace and quiet.

Outlying chalets should be much more quiet and provide an experience that matches the remarkable landscape.

A relaxing stay at Erongo Wilderness Lodge

The lodge was great and we enjoyed the spectacular environment.

We started our holidays here and it was ideal to relax and do long walks in the nature. We did not see any animals (apart from rock hyraxes and baboons) and not many birds though (we are passionate birders).

Food and service at the lodge were outstanding!
