Grootberg Lodge
Ranked #1 of 15 Speciality Lodging in Outjo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The drive up to Grootberg Lodge, up a steep 4X4 road is probably the most exciting drive to any of the lodges we visited. Once we reached the lodge, we found the view to be awe-inspiring.

All the chalets are small, but comfortable. Hot water and lighting are both solar. The hot water tanks appear to be in former donkeys, which provide a decent amount of insulation, so it was one of the few places with solar hot water where we had a decent amount of hot water in the morning.

In the main building, they provide a charging station for camera batteries, phones, laptops, etc. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The food in dining room was some of the best we had this trip.

We only wish we could have stayed there another day and spent some time relaxing and drinking in the view.

This was the best campsite we visited during our 3-week trip through Namibia. It is located in a beautiful surrounding, you have a private campsite with your own shower and toilet and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

The only downsight were these annoying little flies that like to zoom around your head in the afternoon.

We stayed there for two nights and it was just beautiful. We hope that you will keep the campsites as simple as they are. The nature itself is the luxury. We enjoyed the nightsky thanks to the abdication of electricity.

The campsite is great ! Hot water for the shower which is between the stones as the toilet ! The camping place is very quiet and you can see an amazing sky in the evening. The bar and the pool between the stones and the trees are very nice and pleasant. People are friendly.
I recommand everybody to stay at the Hoada camping !

We just came here for lunch and it was fantastic. Since we didn't have a 4x4 vehicle, they sent a car down to drive us up and then out up a table for us on the patio overlooking the wonderful Damaraland panorama. The view is simply stunning and not to be missed! Staff is very, very friendly!

We enjoyed our 2 nights here, The food was, nice though the mains were far too large-noticed quite a few plates went back with food left on them.
The rhino tracking was definitely the highlight, enjoyed the drive through this beautiful area & the rhino trekking, 1 and 1/2 hours, wasn't overly difficult and was well worth the effort when we found 3 rhinos, including mother and baby.

My teen son and I picked this as one of the top lodges we stayed in during our month in Namibia. Perfectly situated on the plateau with grand views, cozy chalets and outstanding service and food. The rhino tracking was one of the top activities we did on our entire tour: by landrover and by foot our expert guide and 2 trackers expertly located an endangered black rhino female with her 11 month old calf. This was a once-in-a-lifetime lodge and nature sighting for us.
