Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
Damaraland is a region of ancient oddities and Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is slap bang in the middle. Its cool interior, camouflage exterior and all-important swimming pool turn this humble lodge into a veritable oasis.
Built from thatch and local stone, the 56 en suite rooms and main living area do a remarkable job of blending in with the red-rock and bleached grass that surround the lodge. The rooms are basic, comfortable and make way for the splendid restaurant, bar and swimming pool area.
Twyfelfontein is where you go to experience the phenomenal age of the Namib's interior. Ancient volcanic rock formations are the canvas for San rock paintings and engravings and the delicate ecosystem supports some amazing flora and fauna. Like the Welwitschia, which lives for about 2,000 years and sprouts a single pair of leaves that lie in a tangled heap on the ground.
En-suite double rooms; reception; lounge; curio shop; open dining room; bar and swimming pool; airstrip
Nature drives; hiking and cycling; nature walks; and guided excursions into the surrounding wilderness areas, San rock art and geological structures
The lodge is in a private conservancy and some of the interesting geological features in the Twyfelfontein area include the Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountain, Doros Crater and the Petrified Forest. You will also see a variety of desert-adapted animals including elephant, rhino, springbok, oryx and ostrich co-existing with the local Damara people.
