The Erongo Mountains
The Erongo Wilderness Lodge is nestled amid granite formations on the outskirts of an ancient volcano. These are the Erongo Mountains - a spectacular feature in the heart of a country renowned for its scenic beauty. The Lodge is a founder member of the Erongo Mountain Nature Conservancy, joining 30 private landowners in a collective effort to conserve and protect this natural treasure of over 200 000 hectares. The Conservancy’s mission includes the preservation of the rich cultural heritage in the form of rock paintings and engravings that are found throughout the area. This peaceful corner of Namibia provides the perfect opportunity to leave the road behind and walk under clear African skies. There are guided walks on offer or you can grab a walking stick, a trail map and explore on your own without an agenda. If the novelty of rambling through this secret wanderland wears off, the guides can entertain you with nature drives, a private mountain top rock art gallery, and some excellent birding.
