This Lodge is set on top of a steep hillside. You need to put your 4x4 in Low range/First gear in order to climb up to the lodge. The track up to the lodge may seem intimidating, but it is actually quite easy once you get going. Coming down use Low/2nd gear and on the brake all the way down... More

In this remote location, the lodge is very, very well run, and comfortable. The staff was attentive, sensitive and helpful. We were greeted with a nice glass of something blue and yummy, were shown to a nice "family suite" - two bedrooms sharing a bath and small room in between. There is limited electricity at the rooms, so you charge... More

We could not fault this campsite. Having travelled around namibia for a month camping only, this campsite was one of our highlights. Totally unique setting, showers and loos built in to rock and hot water lit every night and morning for hot showers. You could even use the coals in the evening to braai on! Friendly staff and excellent in... More

Nicholas and his team looked after us perfectly. Early every morning someone quietly dropped by our campsite & lit a fire to warm our water. Funky shower & toilet nestling in the rocks. Great patio & shade. Wonderful pool in the rocks & great animal tracking opportunities organised via grootberg lodge. Thanks, we had a great stay. Catherine, Miche, Martin... More

What is unique about Grootberg is its management. A lodge entirely built and run by the surrounding communities whose conservation and economic initiatives are apparent, to stay here is to support, and we felt very comfortable in doing so. Exhausted from our trip we stayed two nights in Grootberg but opted out of any activities. Fellow travellers however, we heard... More

We stayed in the lodge for unfortunately only 1 night, but it certainly was a memorable one! Beautiful view, nice people, nice local initiative. Unforgettable was the staffs singing after diner. Truly from their heart! And truly from our heart, thank you for the nice stay.

We spent two nights at Grootberg and would highly recommend the lodge. The lodge is situated at the top of a large plateau overlooking the valley below - the view is spectacular. We loved the main lodge area and infinity pool at the edge of the plateau. It was a great area to relax. The dinners were delicious - we... More

Apart from a reasonable price we would like to emphasise the high level of privacy, integration to nature, discretion of the staff, cleanness. Site is conducive to hiking, mountain biking. Pool area superb however water not so clean and we had to share with hips of children and family from close by villages. We are highly recommending this secluded site.

We did enjoy the one night we spent here (lovely little room, but the furthest from the reception area, so a scary walk along the rocky and semi-lit path home to bed) - because quite honestly the location of the lodge is unbelievable and probably has the best views on earth. The VERY steep road up to the lodge tested... More
