Eningu Clayhouse Lodge stands in the Kalahari amidst bush savannah, a little over an hour's drive south-east of Windhoek's main international airport. This 65 hecatre farm is owner-run by Bettina Spoerndli, and is quite a distinctive lodge – as it's all built from handmade terracotta-coloured bricks which blend into the surrounding red sands of the Kalahari.

Our view of Eningu Clayhouse

Eningu Clayhouse Lodge is often used as a first or last night on a self-drive safari around Namibia, although we think that it’s certainly worth two nights. It is one of Namibia's more unusual and arty lodges, and Bettina’s warm hospitality and the total silence of the Kalahari that surrounds you are just fantastic. We like the rustic but comfortable atmosphere, the good fresh food, and the beautiful hand-painted touches in the rooms. However, don’t come here expecting big game on the drives (if you’re lucky you’ll see kudu and steenbok!), or any real schedule of activities. Think of Eningu as a place to relax and unwind.
