Spitzkoppen Lodge review

Beautiful location and perfect after days of traveling and needing a quieter spot, great outstanding views, great little pool with a view, sunsets from the lodge, sunrise from your tent/room.

Loved this place and wish we had a extra day to stay, relax, just view they beauty of the surrounding rocks or red! And there a great animals there too.

We took a morning bike ride to several spots to get out and get some body movement!

Outstanding lodge in magical location

This is a brilliant lodge in a thrilling location at the base of the mountains.

The lodge is superbly run and had by far the best service of any we stayed at. The food was outstanding.

We have nothing to complain about, other than that out our stay was not long enough.

Spitzkoppen Lodge review

We felt that we shouldn’t have been advised to spend two nights here. Very limited in things to do. Nice location to explore initially. Chef was excellent and provided good vegetarian food. Manageress not in evidence and did not appear to be interested in her clients. Rooms were poor, lacking in toiletries etc. Cold and dusty due to open floorboards. No suitable lounge area or feeling that you could linger after meals

Amazing short stay at Spitzkoppen

Spitzkoppen is another of Namibia's jewels, offering unique tented chalet accommodation set against a backdrop of the Spitzkoppe
mountain on the edge of the Namib Desert in southern Damaraland. Most of the chalets are on stilts and offer spectacular views over the desert plain and mountains beyond. A unique boardwalk system connects the chalets to the main lodge and dining area, which is set part way up the hillside adjacent to the small pool, from where you can enjoy a sundowner and watch a great African sunset. The chalets are very well equipped and very comfortable, with a small deck overlooking the desert. One of the highlights of Spitzkoppen is simply its location and the setting of the chalets and other buildings among the rocky landscape. The other highlight was the morning excursion we took, with our very capable guide Anna, around the Spitzkoppen rock area, and seeing some examples of ancient rock paintings. The staff in the dining room were very friendly and accommodating and a group of ladies from Damaraland sang some traditional Damaraland songs after breakfast just before our departure.

Spitzkoppe Lodge makes you feel like Royalty.

Spitzkoppen Lodge is a brilliant place. The food is First Class and of Gourmet Standard, best food during the whole trip.

The rooms are great and the view from each looks out over the mountains. Worth waking up to.

Bird life and Lizards were plentiful to photograph.

The rooms are well spaced out and a considerable walk from the Dining Room. However, we never had to walk, as there was always a golf type buggy available, with a very willing driver at our service, to take us each way.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here. The staff from the manager downwards were attentive, friendly and lovely.

Amazing place in an incredible place

Great lodge in an amazing place and you can spot wildlife

Did one hike (3rd highest mountain - dont need a guide for this, but was very nice)

One thing: sometimes felt the staff was not treated correctly by the head of the lodge and felt sometimes uncomfortable

Spectacular Spitzkoppen!

We loved this uniquely different lodge!
The chalets are delightfully unusual to look at and the rooms are huge and luxurious - with fabulous rocky views from the balconies and zebra grazing right outside the tent.
The bike ride to see the sunrise is really worth getting up for - and there are lovely walks.
The dining room is beautiful - but a little cold!

Glamping in overdrive.

Very beautiful and different topography/photography provides a heck of a setting for a cleverly designed camp/lodge that is gorgeous in 360 degrees.

Tame sunset drive but raaaaaaather lovely son I'd have done the hikes if we'd had another night

The restaurant is exquisite.

Spitzkoppen Lodge review

We chose this lodge for the unusual location, interesting design and the fact that it's relatively new.

The stylish design and decor met our expectations and, although we enjoyed the general ambience, we felt that the main lounge/restaurant/bar area was slightly lacking in atmosphere, and was 'cold' in more ways than one. The staff went out of their way to rectify this, however, providing blankets and hot water bottles. The lounge might benefit from features such as more 'softer' furnishings, a log fire and staff being around more of the time.

The rooms were cold while we were there and the canvas on the chalets flapped around during the night (ear plugs were provided!).

The activity that we did was fine although the number of available activities seemed quite limited.

We thought we'd arrived at a Star Wars set!

Very comfortable cabins and a lovely dining room with fabulous view. The wind dropped at night so our sleep was not disturbed as reported by other guests - ear plugs are provided!

Activities revolve mainly around the scenery - few animals but several bird species, especially around the swimming pool.

Very good hot buffet.

One night was sufficient
