This is one of the best views in Namibia that you can have from your chalets, right on the cliff edge on top of the Grootberg plateau. An unbelievable view out over the gorge and you can look at the Milky Way from you bed. We stayed here for three nights. Very good food and the singing staff was sweet... More

We were truly impressed by Grootberg Lodge. Upon arrival, we were not expecting the steep climb in 4WD from the main road, but it is not surprising when you discover the spectacular view from the restaurant and indeed from each of the well-appointed bungalows which serve as accommodation. We particularly liked the fact that the lodge was run by the... More

We stayed at Hoada campsite (operated by Grootberg) and were blown away. The campsites are enormous and totally secluded; you get a sense of genuine isolation (as if Damaraland didn't do that enough on its own!). The setting is beautiful amongst the boulders and the private toilet and shower to each site are built in seamlessly. Hot water comes twice... More

It is difficult to describe how wonderful Grootberg Lodge is. The amazing views from the lodge and from each individual cottage is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Getting to the lodge takes some patience because it is located in the northern part of Namibia. requiring driving on gravel roads. The last quarter-mile which is a steep ascent to the lodge itself...

This is an excellent camping site because the sites are spacious and well equipped with a bathroom and kitchen area. The individual sites are also far apart which ensures privacy. The setting among the large granite boulders and outcrops is very beautiful. Reception and service (by Allan) is very efficient, friendly and good. Strongly recommended if you are looking for...

we only stopped by this lodge for a drink during our Namibia trip. Didn't check out the room but the view from the restaurant was breathtaking, the pool looked like it was falling off to the side of the mountain. The drive up through the mountain was pretty cool in our own 4x4 vehicle. If we ever visit Namibia again... More

We stayed only one day&night there but we still remember the unique view this lodge offers ! Best view I have ever had so far while taking a shower ! :-) The staff was extremely friendly & helpful. The manager makes you feel comfortable & even shared some drinks with us, which was great. The food is also delicious. I... More

The location is great. On the top of the Grooteberg pass. Stoning view. The houses are simple but good. Only 14 houses, so everything is very much like at home. The employees try to serve you at their best. I would go back every time.

First advice: Leave your car at the bottom except you are looking for a 4x4 adventure or you are an experienced driver. The way up the mountain is spectacular and it is saver to be driven. On the way we already saw some Kudus. When you arrive at the reception you are warmly welcomed with a drink on the terrace... More
