Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

A wonderful location, with the chalets cleverly positioned amongst the rocks.

It was very hot (but we expected that) - no aircon. very good new manageress, but waiter service a bit erratic. Guides were very good and knowledgeable.

Morning walk strenuous and tiring. Guided drive to Bushman paintings outstanding. No good for animals - saw some mountain zebra in the distance.

Great Lodge in incredible surroundings

We had a lovely 2 nights at Erongo. A lovely place to stay and absorb the surroundings. We enjoyed the guided walks. Not much else to do but we thoroughly enjoyed the lodge. The drive was very straight forward from Windhoek. Good map and directions and excellent road signs. Someone there to great us at the entrance to transfer us to the lodge, but as we had a good 4x4 we were able to take our own car, following him up the rocky track to the lodge.

Remote Lodge in stunning location

We again had exclusive occupation of this Lodge for two of our three nights. It is set in a remote location among the rocks of a large kopje with fabulous scenery.

The large tented room was very comfortable. Walks around the area provided some challenges both in terms of the steepness of some of the climbs but also the extreme heat after about 10am. The staff unobtrusive but helpful when needed

We saw very little game, but there was a considerable number and variety of birds around the Lodge.

Altogether a beautiful place for relaxation at the end of our travels round Namibia.

Hot & Humid

Erongo was our final stop before leaving Namibia and its difficult and perhaps unfair to compare it to our previous experience at Desert Rhino Camp.

The accomodation was comfortable and with a wonderful view. But we struggled to relax in our room as it was baking in the summer sun and with no air conditioning.

Erongo was hot and humid compared to other locations we stayed in and the activities were geared towards bird watching which we were not that interested in. But the food and the service was great.

Great bird viewing

We arrived at lunchtime on Friday, and were immediately transfixed by the bird bath and lizard activity outside the main lodge.

There was slight confusion with staff discussing the access to Paula's Cave to see the rock art, as our road map showed we could drive to it ourselves (not possible), but this did not ditract from a great stay.

We did try to find it initially, before driving around other parts of the conservency, looking for the other rock art marked on the map. This was at the AiAiba lodge. We saw springbok and 3 groups of baboons!

We made it back for the sundowner excursion, which was very enjoyable and had fantastic views. On Saturday morning, we went on an early morning excursion with Bony. This was also great fun, and we saw more baboons.

We only wish we could have spent more time relaxing on our balcony taking in the fantastic vista (although it was extremely hot)!

A great place to finish off the holiday

Erongo is quite a different lodge compared to everywhere else we stayed and has only walking and nearby bushman paintings on offer. It was good place to chill out for a night before our flight home.

Our chalet/tent was large and well equipped and the restaurant was good. Staff were welcoming and friendly and the swimming pool was very welcome after our drive.

We opted for the sundowner climb (not too steep or strenuous) and watched the baboons on an adjacent hilltop and a spectacular sunset before a good dinner.

We did not have any more time to explore the local walking trails as we had to leave after one night at Erongo to return to Windhoek.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

A lovely lodge in a beautiful location with stunning views over the Erongo mountains.

Access will require 4x4 vehicles but for those with 2WD cars there is parking 800 metres from the camp and guests will be collected and transported to the camp by staff in 4x4 vehicles. There is quite a lot of walking and steps to the guest's rooms and the dining area so guests with poor mobility might struggle but the struggle will be worthwhile as this is a beautiful and well run camp with exceptionally good food.

A walk up the adjacent koppie is worth the effort and you will be rewarded with magnificent views while enjoying your chosen sundowner watching as the sun sets over the distant mountains. It is also a chance to meet and chat with the other guests but this walk is not suitable for those with poor mobility.

If you are returning to Windhoek on leaving the camp the road is very good and is tarred all the way apart from the initial 12 kms or so from the camp. We left early the next morning so did not partake in any game drives.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

We had a beautiful two tented section with our own camp fire and separate lounge. Tents were beautiful and luxurious. The walking was great and it's a very beautiful place. This was the best place we came across for dealing with our special dietary requirements/allergies - which shows very good management. Food was very good. The main lodge feels slightly less modern than the rooms.

Although no big game the variety and number of birds (trees full of brightly coloured lovebirds), brightly coloured lizards and hyrax were wonderful.

We had heavy rain which spoiled the experience a little as we couldn't do the sundowner walk/dinner outside/campfire, but would go back to experience this wonderful lodge again.
