"Erongo Wilderness Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 4 Oct 2009
"Loved it - a very peaceful and relaxed final stay in Namibia.

The surroundings and views were delightful and we had a very enjoyable walk early one morning. Wish we'd stayed another night instead of returning to Windhoek.

Mike & Karen the temporary managers were very nice and made us feel very welcome." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Amazing Place Stay More Than 1 Night!"

2 nights Arrived 26 Sep 2009
"We stayed here for 2 nights and we could have easily stayed for more. We went on a waiting list to get into this lodge and I am so glad we stuck it out, if you love walking, want beautiful rocky scenary with plenty of wildlife this is the place, so relaxing. The staff here are fantastic really friendly and accommodating.

We stayed in what I think was there honeymoon suite and it was brilliant, all the chalets are essentially the same tented room attached to a purpose built bathroom just surrounded by nature and all decorated to an exceptional standard. You sometimes get a wake up call from the Baboons on the mountain behind which is useful if you are off for one of the walks which start really early to avoid the heat! The sundowner walk to the top of the Kopje is worth it for the views it really is breathtaking, and the guides are excellent.

The reastaurant area is a great place to relax chat to other guests and staff and from the terrace there is a view of the flood lit watering hole, but the real stars of the show are the porcupines that run up to the kitchen to steal scraps at night! During the day there are loads of Rock Dassie everywhere and Damara Dik Dik's!

It is really worth staying here it is lovely to take a walk in the early morning and spend the day just relaxing, especially if it is the end of your trip which sadly it was for us." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"Erongo Wilderness Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 21 Sep 2009
"I wish I had booked in to stay here longer!

The area and its surroundings were amazing. Even the racket from the dassies overnight added to the experience!

Another great area for stretching the legs and getting some well needed exercise after driving around Etosha." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 2n in Zambia

"Dassi delight"

2 nights Arrived 8 Sep 2009
"The camp was in a stunning location with a bit of a climb up to bed (we had the highest tent with the best view!!!!!).
The tent was excellent, and the shower and toilet in a unique setting. When you showered you looked up and the dassis were there looking at you!!!!!

There was a small pool amongst the rocks which was a pleasure to use during the hottest part of the day (siesta time!!!).

We did an early morning walk which turned into a bit of a route march. It would have been better to have had good maps and done it ourselves had we realised. However it gave us a good feel for the area.

The wild life and birds were very good with porcupine in the evening at the small water hole, several endemic birds and baboons roaming the mountain tops morning and night.

A great way to finish our holiday.

"Erongo Wilderness Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 30 Aug 2009
"What an end to a wonderful trip - the setting is breathtaking, the accommodation fascinating, the food delicious. When one of the party was unable to continue on the guided walk (included in the price because they want you to explore the place and learn about the flora and fauna) the guide took him on a special walk along the flat so that he too could share in the experience. Such hospitality!

The timing of the guided walks means a late breakfast (10.30am) so that the delicious sweet and savoury snacks at 3.00 just bridge the gap before dinner which is served after sundown. The restaurant was perched above the waterhole and visited by various animals including porcupine.

The swimming pool was a very welcome place to relax in the afternnon as was the verandah which had a wonderful view of the sunset." See all these reviews: 24n in Namibia; 11n in South Africa
