A gem hidden in big rocks. Gorgeous place!

The view from balcony is amazingly beautiful. 3 out of 4 walls are windows from floor to ceiling so we have a panoramic view.

Toilet and bathroom are adjacent to the room but outdoor, very natural and special experience!

Wonderful chalet; very special location

What a wonderful ending to a very special trip.

The brief but exciting ride into the compound is a great start to a lovely stay. The chalets were just stunning with beautiful views. Great walking trails and lovely staff showing a great sense of teamwork.

Meals were great and served in a lovely spot with an overlook. Very relaxing with a full range of options for activity level.

Our guide was a very personable local man who shared with us a lot of information about the environment and wildlife as well as about his own life story and the culture of the local area. all in all, a great stay.

Erongo

What a place to finish up. Amazing eerie mountains - granite lumps rising out of the bush.

Great drive up - too steep for the car in first gear - the one and only time we needed low range. Great rooms, fantastic views, the sunset over the mountains was hard to beat. Good food, lots to see and rock hyrax a constant background.

Perfect start of our first Namibia trip

This was the perfect place to start our first Namibia experience.

The camp is beautifully situated on a hillside, We stayed in a tent with a fantastic view with sunset, so we could have our own private 'sundowner' for there is even a minibar. The tent is excellently designed, aim to give every possible comfort with a very beautiful bathroom and all practical equipment for our convenience was there. All well maintained, Welcoming, great staff, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, everyone, not just the guides.

They all keen to make our stay enjoyable - and it really was. We did two guided walks which were greatly enjoyable as our guide was keen to point out and tell all about the rocks, the plants, the trees and all small and bigger creatures we happened to see. And we did see quite a lot of wonderful birds, quadrupedals, like Dik-diks, Kudus etc. The walks are well designed, perfectly well described, clearly marked out and we found it very easy to follow on the two occasions when we chose to go on our own.

Meals. Their muesli is exceptional and coffee is wonderful (these make at least my day) and so is their full English breakfast. The setting for outdoor dinner is wonderful as the view is over the waterhole which one night had a most beautiful little furry visitor; a larger genet. The dinners were well composed and we had the best cooked game ever here . They even had wine from the nearby Kristall Kellerei which was really great as we could not visit the winery.

We had some nice surprises as we drove through the reserve; lots of giraffs, zebras and springbok sightings.

Loved it!

I'm so glad we stayed here for two nights. The scenery is gorgeous: a rugged, rocky bowl strewn with random boulders. It looks like giants tossed them about.

Much as I enjoy safari outings the lack of exercise can be wearing. Erongo Wilderness Lodge has a number of walks leading from the camp. We did the Sundowner and Baboon walks. Both were of easy to moderate difficulty and had great views at the top.

I also went to Paula's Cave. Saw lots of birds and some animals (baboons, zebra, dikdik) on the drive. The art itself is quite interesting.

The birding was very good with lots of noisy lovebirds flitting about and a number of endemics (Monteiro's hornbill, rock runner, etc). Casually sitting on my deck with ordinary binoculars and a pocket guide I spotted over 20 species.

Speaking of which the views off the deck are spectacular. Absolutely loved the design of this place. Tents were nestled into the rocks and angled away from each other to enhance privacy.

The food was very good and the service friendlier than usual. Walked with Clausus (not entirely sure about his name, he's from the Caprivi area) and he was fun to spend time with.

The pool was a little murky, but they had a severe water shortage. So that's quite understandable.

Erongo lodge

This was the best lodge we stayed in. The manager and staff were very helpful and friendly. The trekking and guided walks were good with knowledgeable guides.

One caveat: beware the glasses of wine they serve; they are extremely liberal and oil large glasses to the brim.l

Unique stay in middle of Erongo mountains

We were very positively surprised by Erongo Wilderness Lodge and were happy we decided to stay two nights here.

Very nice facilities with excellent breakfast and overall felt very personal and homey. The walks in the nature are also very nice and give a great view over the area.

Great scenery

Very warm reception as a returning couple for or 3 day stay this time. Great place to relax and just soak up the scenery.
Not the most prolific place for animals apart from baboons but excellent for bird watching and nature walks. Very helpful staff and first class food.

Maureen enjoyed the birthday cake and singing greeting and my 'HOT TODDY' after getting a chill from a rain soaking at our previous lodge. Many thanks to Elaine the Manageress. Sorry to move on from this place.
