"Nowhere like this on earth!"

1 night Arrived 30 Jun 2017
"Erongo Wilderness Lodge is set in the most stunning location, within the deep red rocks in the most natural setting. You had to drive up the bare rock for the last few hundred metres to get there (4wd needed, or they would give you a lift if needed).
The tented accommodation was fabulous with a private location and semi-outdoor bathroom which I loved! The balcony was perfect for evening sundowner drinks and the room had all the amenities you need.

Meals at the cosy main lodge (with open fire) were delicious with great service.

I so wish we'd had an extra day here to make the most of it and spend time taking in the views and walking in the surrounding area.

"Quiet Backwater"

1 night Arrived 16 Jun 2017
"Excellent breakfast, great tray of fruit and yoghurts etc, and freshly made pan cakes.

Dinner was good. Just had glass of house wine each, which tasted good, but turned out to be the most expensive on the whole trip in Namibia by a distance.

Setting for meals is good , and enjoyed watching the rosie faced lovebirds while eating breakfast.

Did not enjoy driving up the over the rocks at post 6pm (pitch black)to the Lodge. This issue was raised with the Duty Manager and passed onto to the Co-owner.

Room/tents are different, but may be draughty if the wind is up.

The location is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties to the tents or up to the restaurant.

In summary a pleasant spot away from it all.

"Attractive lodge"

2 nights Arrived 8 Jun 2017
"Erongo Wilderness Lodge is very attractively set in the Erongo hills. The individual tents are very luxurious - the only challenge being which of the several individual terraces one choses to drink one's beer.

The main lodge is attractively situated and the food excellent.

Erongo is strong on birds - the only game we saw were klipspringer and baboons.

It offers both guided and self-guided walks.

Relatively tame but very well done with beautiful views." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia

"Enjoyable walks from Erongo Wilderness Lodge"

1 night Arrived 27 May 2017
"We only spent a day at Erongo Wilderness Lodge on the way to the Airport. However we had an excellent time in this unusual, way out place. The welcome was friendly, the room exceptional, the food very good and the guided walk we had at sunset was brilliant. Lovely birds and animals too." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Noisy walkways"

2 nights Arrived 22 May 2017
"This lodge occupies a stunning location in the Erongo Mountains. It offers several excellent walking trails over the rocky hills.

Unfortunately, one of the main trails was unaccessible due to overgrowth that had not yet been cleared. The chalets are spacious and very comfortable.

However, we were unlucky to be given a chalet (number 14?) close to the reception area with wooden walkways passing nearby. A noisy tour group and people rolling their suitcases then spoiled our peace and quiet.

Outlying chalets should be much more quiet and provide an experience that matches the remarkable landscape." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana

"A relaxing stay at Erongo Wilderness Lodge"

2 nights Arrived 13 May 2017
"The lodge was great and we enjoyed the spectacular environment.

We started our holidays here and it was ideal to relax and do long walks in the nature. We did not see any animals (apart from rock hyraxes and baboons) and not many birds though (we are passionate birders).

Food and service at the lodge were outstanding!" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Beautiful Lodge in the koppies."

2 nights Arrived 7 May 2017
"Very beautiful lodge built amongst the rocks - a few different walking trails which can be done with a guide if preferred. Great food, really enjoyed Erongo. Lots of stairs and levels though, so if mobility is an issue, this might not be suitable." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia
