Encircled by the Erongo Mountains, Erongo Wilderness Lodge is an idyllic retreat in a secluded valley.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of twelve luxury tented chalets. Each chalet sits high on its stilted legs with a Meru-style tent atop a wide wooden deck. There is a choice between Double Luxury Tents with one queen bed, Twin/Double Luxury Tents with two three-quarter beds, Family Tents with two adjoining tents that have two three-quarter beds in each room, and a Two-tented Suite that also comes with a private dining room and lounge. Every chalet comes with an en suite bathroom built around the existing rocks and trees. Outside, the private decks are fitted with a table and chairs so guests can relax and take in the awe-inspiring views.
The lodge is located in the Erongo Mountains. The Erongo Mountain Nature Conservancy comprises 494,000-acres of pristine wilderness area that straddles the Erongo Mountains, a natural reserve within a huge volcanic crater. The Erongo Mountains are bordered by the Namib Desert to the west and a mixed, woodland savannah to the east. Wildlife living in the area includes leopard, cheetah, giraffe, elephant, rhino, blesbok, waterbuck, impala, warthog, wildebeest, kudu, oryx, eland, mountain zebra, springbok, and steenbok. There are nearly 200 varieties of bird species recorded here like the yellow-billed hornbill, the colorful lilac breasted roller, and crimson bou bou.
