Erongo Wilderness Lodge
Erongo Mountains | Namibia
The Erongo Conservancy is a private conservancy encompassing about 30 landowners and their farms and lodges stretching over 2,000km² (200 000ha). All fences have been taken down between these farms in order to conserve and protect the area. As proof of its success, white rhino were released here in 2009 and the first calf was born in 2010, although they are rarely spotted.
Within the Erongo Conservancy, enriched by the Erongo Mountains and where desert, mountains and bushveld combine, lies the Erongo Wilderness lodge. In a secluded valley, the Erongo Wilderness Lodge consists of 10 luxury tented chalets in a dramatic setting of granite boulders and breathtaking views.
Raised wooden walkways and natural stone steps connect the 10 chalets to the main area, where the restaurant, bar, swimming pool and sundowner deck invite you to relax and unwind. The restaurant and open plan lounge overlooks the floodlit waterhole.
The chalets are raised on stilts and have been built in harmony with their surroundings with broad shaded viewing decks, indulgent en-suite bathrooms built around the existing rocks and trees and a comfortable bed.
The cuisine is a delicious fusion of Italian and African cooking. Dinner is served by candlelight in one of the two dining rooms or under starry Namibian skies in a traditional boma around a fire. Most of the fresh produce comes from the lodge’s organic garden and every day they bake fresh bread and muffins.
