Among the lodges that we have stayed during our 2-week tour of Northern Namibia, Grootberg Lodge was the best one, and easily top three of all times. Its location is unsurpassed, the cabins are definitively cute, and the staff always have a smile on their faces. Rhino tracking an experience that will not be forgotten for a long time. This...

This place has 5 stars on the room alone, talk about room with a view it is outstanding, you can just lay in bed with a stunning view, one I will never forget. Now it is not 5 star luxury if you want all the trimmings, but so worthwhile the visit. The lodges are on the small side small, Walk... More

All of the little huts are set on the rim of the canyon which provides a lovely view. Small balcony to each hut. The huts are a little on the small side and really do need a make over. Simple shower which is very small.comfortable bed with solar panel water heating. The main restaurant was lovely with very good menus... More

The Grootberg lodge is really amazing. It is owned by the local community but still managed by western people (with right intentions: to teach them so they can take over in the future). The location of all of the rooms, the restaurant and the pool is amazing: very wide view over the klip river valley. The rooms themselves are very... More

We spend two nights at the lodge and I must say I was surprised. Yea alright the rooms were not really my style (open bathroom) but the view from the balcony was amazing. The staff was very friendly (it is a community run lodge). The food was excellent, when we called out the chef she was so humble, so sweet.... More

On our 31-days trip through Botswana, Namibia and South Afrika, this was by far the best run campsite we have been. Wonderfull landscape, nice and clean sites, privat ablutions on every site and very friendly staff.

We stayed here for one night. The views are fabulous, but the hut was awful - the plumbing primitive, indeed there is a notice in the hut about "the sensitive French plumbing system". The bed linen was clean and crisp but the pillows absolutely stank of stale sweat - very unpleasant. The staff generally were very welcoming and pleasant and... More

Stayed there one night. The staff was friendly and the location of the campsites are very scenic. The campsites have own shower and toilet. Pool area is nice for a sundowner, although the pool itself is mediocre. Would definetely stay there again!

Small cabin with an awful shower (small cubicle, trickle of water), but the bed was very comfortable, and the view from the room and terrace just spectacular. The reception and dining areas are ok, but a nice bar area with a fireplace and enjoying a drink on the outside terrace with that view was pretty special. Very friendly staff, nice... More

The first time visit. With 6 friends. We all are just taken by the view. This lodge is so well placed but you need a 4x4 to drive on top of the mountain to the parking lot. No panic though, the staff will drive you up to the lodge, but you will have to leave your car in the parking... More
