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.

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!

Beautiful Lodge in the koppies.

Very beautiful lodge built amongst the rocks - a few different walking trails which can be done with a guide if preferred. Great food, really enjoyed Erongo. Lots of stairs and levels though, so if mobility is an issue, this might not be suitable.

Stunning Landscape

An amazing place with much more comfort than you'd expect. Great guided birdwatching.

General evening drive well worth the extra payment. Lots of trails to walk on your own. Great desserts.

Thank you for recommending this one!
