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.

Lovely place

This was a great start to our trip around Namibia.

Very comfortable and atmospheric camp in rocky mountain terrain. We came here to do some walking and we were not disappointed. We self guided for one walk and took a guided early morning walk which was very good. We also took an evening drive ( the only activity to pay for ), going to a cave with prehistoric engravings, and ending up with a welcome sundowner.

Good food, guides and staff.

Fantastic scenery and a beautiful lodge

Erongo Wilderness lodge is typical of many Namibian lodges - good location (a bit of a drive from the main road), well appointed room with a view, warm welcome, a sundowner spot, a couple of activities and a nice dinner and breakfast.

There are lots of well marked walking trails, all of which have fantastic views.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

This was the one big mistake of our trip, in that we should have booked at least two nights here.

We loved it.

Spectacular situation

Our last stop, and after Okonjima this was bound to be less exciting, but nevertheless an enjoyable stay. Comfortable tents, although the beds are quite low to access. The situation amongst the granite boulders is both interesting and spectacular.

The food and the staff were very good.

We set out on what we thought would be a gentle walk with Englebrecht and ended up on the top of a mountain, challenging but with a great sense of achievement.

Plenty of bird species, but apart from hyrax and lizards, few animals.
