We had just one night at Erongo Wilderness Lodge to break our journey up to Etosha national park. We arrived quite late in the day as the sun was starting to turn the rocks a golden colour, highlighting the natural beauty of the lodge's setting. Accommodation was in comfortable, but relatively rustic stilted tents dotted across the rocky landscape, some well positioned for the sunset between huge boulders. Our supper here was probably the best meal of our trip, all served in a beautiful restaurant overlooking a small water hole. We had a great view of the stars as they came out, as well as the distant electrical storm (which did arrive at 3am!). We did a nature walk in the morning which was our first foray into the bush, and so interesting, but there is very little game and we learned more about plants and geology than about animals. We did spot a few baboons in the distance, and some Dik Dik antelopes, but don't head to Erongo if your motivation is just game viewing. We felt very well looked after throughout our trip and really enjoyed our short stay.
