We arrived just after dusk and the guard thought for a moment before allowing us to proceed up the steep, rocky hill to the lodge. Several cars were parked outside the gate, but we assured him that our Subaru Forester could make the climb. 300 nervous meters later we arrived in the parking lot and were welcomed by the lodge's...

after you've recovered from negotiating the awful driveway it is pleasure all the way! The staff are all extremely helpful and so friendly, the food is great, the location is brilliant, the views are spectacular - so relaxing we didn't move all day. Massages have just been added to the menu and it was excellent - great value! We didn't... More

The way I was received by Agnes until my farewell by the manager the next morning was just Great. Great welcome, great accommodation, great food, great view from my room, delicious dinner; in short this is some of the best experiences Namibia can offer its own people and indeed visitors. Ask for accommodation 1-8 since you will have the sun... More

We spent two nights in Grootberg and as everyone else, we were also amazed by the view. It is unbelievable to wake up with this view! Because of the lions in the neighbourhood, we could not go on a hiking tour, and therefore we decided to spend a day at the pool. All other activities were rather expensive compared to... More

Super lodge on top of a plateau. Fabulous views. Great staff and food. Enjoyable game drives. Definitely need a 4X4 to access the lodge, better to park at bottom and get lodge transport to the top, very steep road.

Grootberg was my boyfriend and my favourite lodge in our 12 day self-drive of Northern Namibia. The spiced soups, hot fresh-baked bread and tender meats were better than I've had in most restaurants in Sydney. We made sure to thank the bashful but brilliant chef. The family & non-family members who run Grootberg sit at the table next to you... More

An amazing location with a view to die for. Well run establishment by the community and very comfortable accommodation. You need a 4x4 to reach the lodge otherwise you have to wait for the lodge transport to collect you. Really friendly staff and lovely atmosphere, great place to visit and catch your breath after a long drive.

What an amazing place! Perched on top of a high plateau, looking over the Klip river valley and for miles around is the Grootberg lodge. A small handful of 'huts' with terraces nestle into the rock face overlooking the valley and a larger lodge houses the bar, restaurant and small infinity pool. A word of warning...don't try to drive up... More

Had a fantastic 3 nights here. All the staff were lovely and the management team take a real interest in the guests and go out of their way to help. We were upgraded to one of the new family rooms which we didn't ask for, but which Dominic offered to make our stay more pleasant. Evening meals were a real... More

This was our second visit to Grootberg Lodge and still love it so much! The location s just fabulous on the top of Grootberg looking down Klip River. The place is small, has 12 rooms but is in process of finalising a few more. Each room is on the edge of the plateau with a small deck and fabulous views... More
