Grootberg Lodge is set on the Etendeka Plateau in Damaraland, about half way between Swakopmund and Etosha. The scenery here is stunning, with sweeping views down into the broad Klip River Valley where you can often sea black eagles soaring on air currents. The lodge offers much more than a convenient stopover: while here you can take a day trip to track black rhinos or desert-adapted elephant, visit a local community of Himba people, and go on game drives and guided walks on the plateau where you can expect to see zebra, oryx, springbok and, if lucky, kilpspinger.

There are 16 rooms including 2 larger family units. Accommodation is tastefully furnished with colourful cushions, fluffy rugs and pretty bedside lamps adding a homely touch, and modern, en-suite bathrooms with water heated by a wood burner. Each room has a supply of tea, coffee so you can make yourself a hot drink, and a small shaded terrace for secluded relaxation.

General facilities include a restaurant where an open fire provides warmth on cool days, with a deck for al fresco dining and a well-stocked bar. There's an outdoor infinity pool with amazing views over the Klip Valley, and soothing and pampering massages can be arranged.

Grootberg Lodge is notable for being wholly owned by the local community, the #Khoadi/Hoas. The private concession covers 12,000 hectares and is a prime wilderness area dedicated to conservation and eco-tourism.
