Set in a secluded valley in the western region of Namibia, Erongo Wilderness Lodge lives up to its name. There are a number of guided walks and nature drives on offer, designed to immerse guests in the surrounding landscape, and the lodge even has luxury living facilities built around existing rocks and trees.

Activities at Erongo Wilderness Lodge centre on a particular approach to nature explorations: relax and take your time. The sundowner walks, early morning walks, and morning walks offer guided treks of varying degrees of length through the rich nearby fauna. Guests can also participate in Nature Drives, which are equally relaxing.

One of the destinations on the drive is Paula’s Cave, which features bushman rock art that guests can explore, after which a slow drive back to the lodge offers a great opportunity to spot nocturnal game. The Erongo area is home to a plethora of birdlife, and guests can expect to spot a variety of unique species on the self-guided walks, from Black Eagles to Plum-coloured Starlings, and raptors to the smallest sunbirds.

Guest accommodation consists of 10 tented suites tucked away in the rocky Erongo Massif, offering good views of the surrounding private Erongo Mountain Nature Conservancy. Each is spacious and comfortable, with en-suite facilities.

The main lodge has a swimming pool, which has been built into the rock, and a deck overlooking the plains. The lodge’s location near the town of Omaruru gives guests a chance to discover local Namibian culture. While this may detract from the wilderness feel, the lodge more than compensates by providing a great spot from which the Erongo mountain landscape can be explored, along with lovely views.

Erongo Wilderness Lodge welcomes children of all ages, but a stay will be best suited to families with older children able to participate in the various walking activities on offer.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
