Erongo is located in the mountains and is more lush than most of what you see in Namibia. The stay was enjoyable and the hosts worked with us to make the stay worthwhile, although we were only there one night. Erongo is is a tented camp, with each tent on it's own platform and a covered au natural bathroom with only the local creatures to spy on you. All the tents platforms are newly enlarged with new tents and larger outdoor spaces. Erongo is set in a rock filled area, set in amongst those rocks and with much low scrub trees as the major vegetation. Among the local residents are large numbers of Rock Dassies - which despite their diminutive size (about 20 centimetres in length for an adult) and no tail, are related most closely to their bigger brethren - the elephant. They appear to be communal in nature and when walking near them many sets of eyes stare down at you from their perches on the rocks above you. Again though our time here was limited to a single night it is a place one who enjoys being with nature would enjoy. As with many of the places to stay in Namibia it is set off far from any other place to eat so you will take all meals on site.
