Lovely campsite. Well spaced plots, with shade & your own toilet & hot shower- great. Fantastic rhino drive & a well documented history trail. Very helpful manager. However, the receptionist must be the rudest man I have ever had the misfortune to come across. Whilst...More

Almost 1 year ago that we stayed here, just wished we had an extra day in our itinerary to have had 2 nights instead of 1 night. The perfect place to stay if travelling between Etosha and Windhoek or vice versa. Have to remember that...More

About
Description
The buildings of Waterberg Wilderness Lodge shelter in a long valley in the midst of the Waterberg mountain range. Built from red Waterberg sandstone they nestle under enormous old trees. The atmosphere in the More mature, well-kept garden with its two pavilions, many cool and shady places and an immured spring water basin lined by giant bamboo is idyllic. Less
