Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

The personal welcome and amazing uninterrupted view from our tent perched on the side of a kopje made us so disappointed we were staying only one night.

We thoroughly enjoyed all we could while there. The pool was refreshing, the natural bird bath, strategically placed just beside the restaurant, was a gift to birdwatchers, and the location for Sundowners, which was a physical challenge to attain, atop a kopje, was rewarding.

Our morning guided nature walk before we left was filled with new information and reasons to return. We followed the trail of an ardvark hoping to see him, and had the landscape, flora and fauna explained.

This Lodge is close to Windhoek and we have advised our friends there to make sure they visit.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge.

This place looked fantastic, lush green and full of flowers. The result of heavy rain about two weeks before our visit. We had a great room and the food was good as was the wine list. Though it was a long trek down from our room to reception and then up to the dining room. A few points that might improve the room. A mirror in the bedroom in addition to the one in the bathroom would help. More shelving and rather less hanging space would be an improvement, together with another luggage stand so there's space for a second bag. Does the safe really need to be on the floor and jammed into a corner? It's very awkward to use. The shower floor which was dished has been painted with some sort of composition this is slippery when wet. Fortunately the rocky top to the wall provides grab handles to save oneself.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

What a stunner to save till last. We thought it was just a stop off on the way home, no. More breathtaking rocky landscape seen from a wonderful tented chalet of very high quality. Lots of birds and animals. Some fantastic south african wines and great food.A perfect finish to the trip.

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.
