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

GROOTBERG Lodge The Grootberg Lodge sits on the highest point on this range of a table like mountain with a spectacular view over the edge, down into a vide canyon. When you get to the summit of the Grootberg Pass, there is a very steep 4 WD only, (and I really mean only) road up the hill for about 600... More

It is not possible to judge places like this as one might a "normal" hotel. It is remote and beautiful. Amazing location with great lodges. How they produce the food given where they are is astonishing but still customers ask "do you have a gluten free bread roll?" Staff are friendly ad helpful. Try asking then to help you say... More

We spent 2 nights here in September. Staff are very well trained and from the local communities. Wonderful view from the bungalows and lodge. The guide and tracker that took us on the Desert Elephant trail were excellent and we learnt a lot about the local ways over our picnic lunch with the guide and tracker. Food was good.

We enjoyed three nights in this lodge. The staff that welcomed us was very friendly, explained about the lodge, facilities and excursions. We booked on a half pension basis so dinner was included, they serve a nice 3 course meal that was very tasty! The great thing about this lodge is that it is set up and managed by the... More

We spent 2 nights here and we loved it. The lodge is not luxe but the view is. Exciting drive up to the lodge in our 4 x 4 (don't try it in anything else). Lots of springbok and oryx wandering around up top. Saw a large kudu male right outside our cabin which was the end one but still... More

We loved this lodge, the nature around is gorgeous and the way the lodge is managed is very responsible. All is done to preserve the nature and local people is trained to be fully involved in the development of this eco-tourism lodge. The stoned bungalow style are fantastic and very confortable. Of course this is not the cheaper place in... More

We stayed 2 nights in Grootberg Lodge. We agree with all reviewers that the site is absolutely magnificent. We had a day "rhino" trip which gave us the opportunity not only to see rhinos, but also to see the fabulous landscape of the valleys below the lodge. We loved it. However, we found the bungalows really uncomfortable: very small, with... More

The staff here were the best in Namibia, they went out of their way to make our stay special. The journey to the lodge was not the easiest for us with 2 punctures but that made the peace of the place seem even more special with such spectacular views. The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable, nice hot shower and... More
