Loved staying at Erongo

Loved our stay at Erongo - possibly the best place we stayed. Walking activities - sundowner and morning hike (included) were really really good and made our stay.

Loved the outdoor but sheltered bathroom and the huge balcony but room was fully secure and felt safe. Enjoyed the drive from the parking area which you definitely needed a 4x4 for!

Food and restaurant was nice, staff welcoming and helpful - if anything we would have loved to stay an extra night here.

Where was the lift?!

A stunning location and a perfect end to our holiday. Not for the even more infirm as the slopes were steep and the walking could be challenging at times but the bird life was dramatic as was the scenery.

We really enjoyed Paula's Cave - thank you Eclesias! You were great fun and helped give my "engine and suspension" a good workout - you may even have deflated a spare tyre or two!

Thanks for the birthday cake for our son!

Magical Erongo

We only had one night here before driving to the airport for our flight home and we wish we'd had more!. The luxury tents are spread-out across a boulder strewn hillside and linked by wooden walkways, the whole thing is magically lit up at night. We even had boulders outcropping in our shower!

We independently walked over a kopje in the afternoon climbing high above the camp for amazing views of the landscape of pink granite. Dinner in the wooden dining room was served with care and prepared with skill.

We were up early for the drive to Windhoek and staff prepared a breakfast pack for us to eat on the way.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge review

On our previous trip we visited Erongo for only one night, so we were looking forward to spending more time there with a two night stay. The tents had been refurbished since the previous trip and are now even better quality, with more space and ours had a big covered deck alongside.

We found the self-guided trail (Baboon rocks) impossible to follow but went on a guided walk the following morning and realised where we'd gone wrong - apparently the baboons move the rocks from the cairns. A fantastic walk through wonderful country with great views. We set off before dawn and so we could could appreciate the sky getting lighter and the sun rise above the distant hills.

We did the sundowner walk (as on our previous visit) and again appreciated the extensive views and the wonderful setting. A great place to round off the trip.

Open air dining was excellent.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge

The Erongo Wilderness Lodge was another fabulous place to stay. We regret that we only had one night there.

Huge rocks are scattered around the hills and the lodge giving it an "other-worldly" look. The tents are luxurious and the view stunning. They have great, scenic trails and a chance to see baboons and another animals near the lodge.

The staff was very helpful. We had to depart early in the morning to get to the airport and they made sure we have a bag breakfast and a ride to our car even though it was before their normal working hours. We want to go back there.

Erongo a nice surprise

The Erongo Wilderness Lodge is beautifully situated amongst 'kopjes' in the highlands, and a wonderful and relaxing last stop before heading back to the airport. We would advise however to allow 4 hours for that drive rather than the three hours advised. The bird watching around the lodge is excellent, and there is some surprising wild life too, we encountered dik-dik, klipspringer, baboons and dassie at close range during the guided walks, and rarer species during dinner at the lit waterhole.

Those expecting nature walks are advised that whats on offer are merely short strolls in close range to the lodge, and so are the self-guided walks, although one could of course walk over the gravel roads. Our guide ventured with us on request over a dried river bed in search of reptiles, they are quite accommodating if one asks.

Highly recommended
