Perched on the rim of the Etendeka Plateau, the Grootberg Lodge stands sentinel over the Klip River Valley. Sixteen rock and thatch chalets gaze out over the gorge, where Black Eagles hunt just below your private deck. 12 000 hectares have been set aside by the #Khoadi // Hoas Conservancy for conservation and tourism and it is through this pristine wilderness that you meander either on foot or by car to encounter the inhabitants of this remote biosphere. Activities on offer include tracking the elusive Desert elephant, visits to a nearby Himba village, following the endangered Black Rhino on foot, as well as educational guided walks to discover the myriad of smaller mammals, birds, reptiles, insects and plants that exist here. This Lodge provides the ideal midway stopover, whilst allowing guests to experience the true wilderness that is Damaraland!
