Situated in a secluded valley in the Erongo Mountains, where the desert, mountain, and bushveld ecosystems combine, Erongo Wilderness Lodge has ten tented chalets in a dramatic setting of granite boulders and breathtaking views.
Each luxury tented bungalow is built on stilts in its own niche amongst the rocks to ensure peace, privacy and exclusivity. Walking is the best way to experience the beauty of this area and the guides are happy to share their knowledge of the local fauna, flora and folklore on walks over granite domes and through rich valleys. Leopards have been spotted on rock outcrops at the lodge while the call of Hartlaub Francolins, Rock runner, White Tailed Shrike, Rosy Faced Love Birds and many other endemic birds provide a constant soundtrack.
The lodge is proud of being a founder member of The Erongo Mountain Nature Conservancy, a collective effort with 30 other private landowners, committed to conserve, protect and preserve over 200,000 ha of land, rich in cultural heritage. This includes the historic and irreplaceable rock paintings and engravings found throughout the area, such as the Paula’s Cave rock art site at Erongo Wilderness Lodge.
Why we like it
Erongo is a peaceful place with great service. The camp is nestled in the Erongo Mountains which are wonderful to explore on foot. This is a good way to break up the journey if self driving between the west and Windhoek.
