Highlights of Erongo Wilderness Lodge
- Stunning mountain setting in the central highlands
- Set amongst giant boulders
- Guided or self-guided walking trails
- San (Bushmen) rock art on offer
Erongo Wilderness Lodge lies perched in the midst of the Erongo Mountains with its rugged granite koppies. The Erongo Mountains form part of Namibia’s central highlands and lies two hours north-west of Windhoek. Here the desert, mountain and bushveld eco-systems of Namibia meet.
It makes a perfect stopping point between the Swakopmund area to the west and Etosha to the north. However we would really recommend two nights here as this is one of Namibia’s most rewarding wilderness areas, known for its excellent bird-watching. Guided walks, nature drives, rock art sites, bird-watching and guaranteed relaxation are all on offer at Erongo Wilderness Lodge.
Activities at Erongo
Guided walks are offered in the early morning (either 3-4 hours or a more relaxed 1-2 hours), or as an evening sun downer walk. However Erongo Wilderness Lodge has laid out several self-guided walking trails so you can also enjoy the utter serenity of the Erongo Mountains under your own steam. In between the boulders, San (Bushmen) rock art sites have been discovered – one of which is visited as part of their afternoon nature drive (available at an additional cost). Birding is particularly good at Erongo.
Erongo Wilderness Lodge itself is perfectly situated amongst the granite boulders in Namibia. The main lodge has a restaurant, lounge, swimming pool and an outside sundowner deck overlooking a floodlit waterhole – the perfect place to relax and unwind. Raised wooden walkways and stone steps take you to the ten luxurious tented chalets under thatch which are built around existing rocks and trees. Given the surrounding boulders, these are pretty secluded and offer superb views of the surrounding Erongo Mountains from their broad shaded decks.
