Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

A wonderful camp in a spectacular setting.

The tents are beautifully furnished; ours (no 10) had e large wooden veranda and views down the valley. We had a very warm welcome from everyone and the atmosphere is great. We did the sundowner walk (gin and tonic on top of the mountains) and the early morning nature walk, both of which were spectacular with knowledgeable and friendly guides.

We thought this was the best camp we had stayed in in Namibia and can't wait to go back.

Bouldered over by this camp

This was the camp with the best setting of our trip. Weathered granite outcrops provide a surreal landscape within which nestle the tented chalets.

One wall of our bathroom was a boulder. Every tent has a view of the landscape. Wooden walkways lead you up and down and over boulders. The restaurant is up fifty steps but provides a spectacular view over the terrain and a small waterhole.

Activities included a choice of morning guided walks, way marked trails and a late afternoon visit to a local cave containing painted rock art.

Unique and wonderful place to stay

This was a lovely place to spend our final night in Namibia. The accommodation blends almost seemlessly with the surrounds making it feel at one with the environment.

The room itself was very comfortable with a lovely bathroom that was partly open to the air (whilst maintaining privacy!).

The restaurant and pool area was well laid out and comfortable for relaxing.

We went on the sundowner walk and also the 2 hour morning nature walk. Both of these were very good with knowledgeable and friendly guides (Emmanuel on the morning walk). The landscape in this area really has to be seen to be appreciated - we were very glad to be able to see it and explore a little on the walks.
The food was very good (especially the evening meal).

Erongo was a good way to finish

We spent our last two nights at Erongo and really enjoyed ourselves there. Staff were friendly and welcoming

Superb location with the tented chalets well spread out - ours had a lovely view.

It was very hot (40C+) whilst we were there so it was a time to relax rather than do some of the walks on offer - although I did do an early morning guided walk which was wonderful.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge Review

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here; we went on a sundowner hike, and an early morning hike, and then did an extended self-guided trail in the afternoon.

In between we relaxed on the terrace of our very pleasant chalet and enjoyed the views.

If there had been more trails to take, we'd have liked to have had more time here. The food and service were excellent.

Brilliant stay

Erongo is truly relaxation in the wilderness. It has a really nice feel to it - with independent travellers who can explore the barren landscape and then come back to a luxury tent with great evening food served to your table.

Erongo's staff were superb too - particularly the guide Emmanuel who had a real passion for the local landscape and wildlife, and the safari drive and sundowner in a nearby cave is recommended. Birdlife and mammals were great too - don't miss the early morning feeding at the restaurant of hundreds of Rosy-faced Lovebirds.

Should have stayed longer

This was just meant to be a stopover on the way back to Windhoek so we weren't able to take part in the evening and morning walks.

The rooms were spacious and well equipped and it's a very peaceful location

We saw more birds here than anywhere else and the dassies were a continual entertainment. Wished we'd stayed longer.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

A stunning situation in the kopjes!

We did not really have long enough to appreciate the camp and in hindsight we should probably have broken our drive to Windhoek from Etosha elsewhere. We enjoyed the amazing views, the lovely setting of the communal area and dining room and the friendliness of the staff.

The room seemed tired in comparison with all we had been in prior to this and we wondered if the camp itself had seen better days and needed a bit of investment.
