Beautiful setting, knowlegable guides

Erongo wilderness Lodge was probably our favorite place to stay in Nambia and a nice ending point to an exciting trip. The tent cabins nestled in the hills are charming, with stunning outdoor bathrooms and showers. The food in the dining room was the best we had in a whole month of visiting Namibia, with unique types of food and courses and lovely presentations of the food for dinner and breakfast. The management team is quire professional but the guides for the walks were fabulous.

We did 3 guided walks with 2 different guides and learned so much about the geology, ecology, wildlife, baboon behavior, local cultural insights and just generally thoughtful good company. We were one of the few groups to stay multiple nights and were glad we did, but the staff was very accommodating to those overnighters to maximize their experience in those shorter times. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

The rooms are warm without any AC but the fans help and they cool down nicely in the evening. the dining room bar provide a well ventilated relaxing area in the heat of the day and they are generous in providing snacks and cool beverages for the course of the day.

Stunning location

An absolutely beautiful lodge, very well run, in a stunning location. The guided walks were included with knowledgeable, friendly guides and a real highlight for me.

Food was very good and I loved being surrounded by wildlife.

Only downside was the insect bites as it had recently rained.

The most magical place!

We cannot say enough good things about Erongo Wilderness Lodge! It far exceeded any expectations that we had!
Upon arriving, we knew we were somewhere special! The owner, Doe welcomed us, gave us the rundown of what was going on and we quickly signed up for a couple of guided walks. The staff was so nice and even left us two small bottles of champagne and a congrats on our wedding note.
The guides were excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable. They answered all our questions and taught us so much about the area.
The meals we had there was fantastic!! Delicious, great service and very romantic!
The tented chalet was beautiful! It was comfortable, the atmosphere was incredible. We were constantly saying how we couldn't believe we were there! It was out of a fairy tale!

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

Wilderness is a bit of mis-description as the location is not far from Omaruru. They have piped water from the municipality, (faulty at the time of our visit) and mains electricity.

We were shuttled the last kilometre to reception in a 4X4.

Access to the tents(rooms) is up steep paths/steps which were tricky in the dark.

No activities.

Wish we had more time here.

We had a lovely sundowners hike to the top of a mountain!

Next time we visit Namibia we will spend at least 5 days here.

Beautiful tents amongst the rocks

Beautifully appointed tents set amongst stunning rocky hills. The accommodation had a great sitting out area where we could relax and watch the many birds, lizards etc.which we were most content to do rather than attempt the well defined walking trails available on what were very hot days.

The camp's restaurant and bar area was comfortable and when the weather was good, dining on the terrace overlooking a floodlit water hole and beneath a star studded sky was wonderful.

All the camp staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We felt very welcome and well looked after.

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.
