Ondudu Safari Lodge
An ornithological paradise, this lodge is perched amid the rugged granite koppies at the foot of the iconic Erongo Mountains. The lodge is part of a 2,000 square-kilometre Erongo Nature Conservancy, which brings together thirty private landowners as they strive to protect and ensure the longevity of this diverse area.
As a guest at Ondudu Safari Lodge, you can explore the colourful volcanic landscape and view ancient Bushman rock paintings. The reserve is also renowned for its incredible bird life, along with rare, endemic flora and fauna. For the hikers, there is a multitude of terrific trails to take on.
On the western border of the famous Etosha National Park, you will find this jewel nestled
in amongst the tranquil mopane forest. It is a photographer’s dream at the right time of year, with wildlife that includes, lions, elephants, giraffes, and much more.
The waterhole directly in front of the lodge draws you into daily wildlife interactions, which could also include some majestic scenes of big cats such as lions searching for prey.
Here you can enjoy cosy rooms, a sparkling pool, a raised viewing deck to spot game at the waterhole, delicious food, and friendly staff that will make you feel at home.
Those looking for a little more adventure and more of a rustic experience can travel just 25 kilometres east of Grootberg Lodge to the Hoada Campsites. Here you can enjoy comfortable camping facilities, tent amidst the spectacular granite boulders and mopane trees, or take a dip in the pool surrounded by granite rocks. You can choose between pitching your own tent or hiring one of the permanent tented “rooms”.
Continue your discovery of the Namibian wilderness in the heart of Damaraland, where you will find Grootberg Lodge, perched on the edge of the Etendeka Plateau with a view over the Klip River Valley that is sure to take your breath away.
This is the flagship of Journeys Namibia’s social responsibility and their ongoing conservation efforts in the country.
Located in the ≠Khoadi-//Hôas Conservancy, this lodge is significant to the Namibian
tourism industry as it is the first middle-market establishment that is 100% owned by a conservancy. The lodge employs the majority of staff from the conservancy in order to support the community.
An experience like no other, you cannot miss this opportunity to travel up the infamous Skeleton Coast and stay at our quintessential establishment, Journeys Namibia’s premier and an exclusive crown jewel of the collection.
This spectacular and hauntingly beautiful site is located between the Hoarusib and Hoanib Rivers within the Skeleton Coast National Park, just 45 kilometres north of Möwe Bay. Don’t be fooled – this seemingly short trip will take you on a journey into the past, and as 4×4 is required, expect a few hours to fly by as you view the remnants of history.
At the lodge, you will find ingenious shipwrecked guest rooms nestled in the dunes, offering spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. From the luxury and comfort of your guest room, you can savour the harsh beauty of the desert and reflect on the troubling past that is so tangible from these shores.
Fish River Lodge
From the northern corner of Namibia, you are encouraged to travel to the southern tip, to view the only establishment set directly on the edge of the Fish River Canyon. The distance is great, but the experience is worth the travel, as the magnificent views over the vast Canyon from sunrise to sunset will take your breath away.
Here you can stroll along the rim of the canyon, take a guided tour, or enjoy an exhilarating 4×4 excursion into the heart of this geological wonder, viewing millions of years of history in a single afternoon.
Hikes into the canyon are a wondrous experience reserved exclusively for the guests of Fish River Lodge from April to September. Packages of two or three nights are available, where you will overnight at Camp Edge and Camp Eternity after a long day of absorbing this incredible scenery on foot. The ultimate hikers dream, you will settle in each evening in carefully designed stone gabions that blend in with the landscape falling asleep under a blanket of stars.
