Grootberg Lodge is a landmark in Namibia for the tourism industry as it is the first middle-market establishment in the country that is 100% owned by the conservancy. For travellers making the journey between Etosha and Swakopmund, this lodge provides the ideal midway stopover, whilst allowing guests to experience the true wilderness that is Damaraland.
Perched on the rim of the Etendeka Plateau, the Grootberg Lodge stands sentinel over the Klip River Valley. 12 000 hectares have been set aside by the #Khoadi//Hoas community for conservation and tourism. Visitors can explore this pristine wilderness either by foot or car and experience encounters with the inhabitants of this remote biosphere.
Elephant tracking at Grootberg Lodge has become one of their most popular activities.
Rhino tracking is one such an activity and those wishing to accompany our guide and game trackers down the flow of the Klip River will have to be ready by 06:00. The experience is a mixture of 4×4 game drive and setting off on foot, with the possibility of up to three hours” walking.
Himba village excursion
Damaraland and the Kaokoveld as well as southern parts or Angola are home to the Himba, one of the last truly traditional tribes on the planet. These friendly people are closely related to the Herero and lead a semi-nomadic life as herdsmen, breeding mainly cattle and goats.
