Grootberg Lodge is perched on the rim of the Etendeka Plateau in Namibia and stands sentinel over the Klip River Valley, where 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.
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.
Fourteen twin and two family rock and thatch chalets gaze out over the Klip River Valley. The two family units provide enough space for parents and two children to share comfortably. Each room has a shower, toilet and washbasin complimented with the necessary amenities. The rooms each have a writing desk, bedside lamps and a small deck in front of the unit. A coffee and tea station is provided with hot water flasks (refill available at main lodge).
Self-catering accommodation is provided at Hoada Campsite, situated within the conservancy 25km east of Grootberg Lodge. Guests need to provide their own camping equipment, although the friendly community staff will help to set up your tents and/or gazebos and assist start your fire.
The friendly staff at the lodge are all employed from the community and well-empowered to perform their duties. Guests are hosted in genuine local hospitality complimented by excellent food. The waitresses and bartender are always ready to serve and assist where needed. Grossberg’s certified masseuses offer Indian Head massages, back, neck and shoulder massages, full body massages, and foot rubs
Elephant and rhino tracking excursions are the most popular activities. Guided walks and scenic drives on top of the plateau are also popular as knowledgeable guides help to spot the various shy inhabitants of the plateau and share their knowledge about the local flora, and the amazing rock formations of the Etendeka Mountains.
The Damara Cultural Tour is certainly a highlight not to be missed, as guests are guided through surrounding conservancy farms visiting the authentic homesteads of the Damara people to understand their origins, cultures, traditions and their approach to human-wildlife conflict farming within the harsh desert conditions.
