Grootberg Lodge

Damaraland, Namibia


Stay at Grootberg Lodge

Nestled on the edge of the Etendeka Plateau, Grootberg Lodge commands a majestic view of the Klip River Valley. The Khoadi/Hoas community has dedicated 12,000 hectares to conservation and tourism, creating an unspoiled wilderness where you can leisurely wander on foot or explore by car, encountering the diverse inhabitants of this remote biosphere. A true landmark in Namibia’s tourism industry, Grootberg Lodge holds a special distinction as the first middle-market establishment entirely owned by the conservancy.

For travellers journeying between Etosha and Swakopmund, this lodge offers an ideal midway stopover, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the authentic wilderness of Damaraland. The lodge staff consists of community members, meticulously trained in their respective roles. Guests are treated to genuine local hospitality, accompanied by delectable cuisine prepared by the skilled kitchen staff. Always attentive and ready to assist, the waitresses and barman cater to every guest’s needs, ensuring a memorable and comfortable stay.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
