Brandberg White Lady Lodge: Our full report
Brandberg White Lady Lodge is situated on the northern side of the Brandberg Mountain, the highest mountain in Namibia. A stay here puts visitors within easy reach of the famous Bushman white lady rock painting. We briefly visited during our research trip through Damaraland in November 2015 and here is what we know about it.
Accommodation at Brandberg White Lady Lodge is varied but basic, comprising:
- Eight twin chalets
- 15 rooms in a solid block, each with basic BBQ facilities outside. These rooms are generally reserved for large groups, and include four that can sleep up to four people, so suitable for families.
- Six tents with en-suite facilities
- 23 campsites
The chalets and rooms are spread out under large, shady trees across the Ugab River valley. Each has a private veranda, electric lights and ceiling fan.
It’s important to note that the all the accommodations are set apart from the main area and it is recommended that travellers drive between the two, as elephants do wander across the site.
The main area at Brandberg White Lady Lodge has a bar/lounge area, a restaurant and a large swimming pool.
Ideal length of stay: 1-2 days
