Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

At least between June and December you’re likely to see them waltzing through camp. They inhabit the area in the winter months, so they’re usually around during this time but this largely depends on the rain season. In the summer and depending on when the rains come, they move further north into the farmlands. Sightings are not guaranteed but there’s a good chance you could see them. Who knows they may even come in search of water? It’s been said that they often dig up the pipes. Oops!

This really is incredible and nothing to worry about as the lodge always knows when the elephants are around. They’ll make sure you’re safe and that the elephants move through camp peacefully. This is what it is all about.

Right along the river, so close, it almost feels as though you are in the dry riverbed. Sand and bush surroundings. Your designated campsite is spacious and private with the luxuries of a warm shower and flushing toilet.

Enjoy incredible sunrises and sunsets. And all this with a view of the Brandberg Mountain in the background.

Facilities

Numerous campsites of varying size from smaller individual sites to larger group sites. Each campsite has own braai stand and water tap. Multiple shared ablution blocks spread out across the campsites with open-air toilets and showers with hot water (by donkey fire).

No electricity at campsites. All electrical devices can be charged at the lodge.

Campsite guests may make use of lodge facilities including the restaurant; bar; sundowner lookout point; swimming pool & kiddies swimming pool. Any dinner reservations at the lodge should be paid 2 days in advance to avoid disappointment.

Activities

Explore the area of the Brandberg Mountain. A marvel in its own right as the highest massif in Namibia. The closer you get the bigger it gets and from far it’s already huge. It’s almost inconceivable. Drive a short way from the lodge and you get to the starting point of the hike to view the White Lady rock painting.

Take a self-drive in the area to take it all in and in search of the desert adapted elephants. That’s if they haven’t already wondered past your tent. You can also hike in the area on your own. There are no marked trails but you’re welcome to explore on foot following the roads around the lodge and into the dry riverbed. The lodge can advise on the best areas to discover and on ideal spots for a sundowner with a view.

If you’d prefer to venture off with a lodge guide, the Brandberg White Lady Lodge offers desert elephant drives in the mornings and in the afternoons and the scheduled times for these activities depend on the time of year. They also offer a scenic sunset drive and guided horse riding, which is suitable for beginners and experienced riders.

There’s plenty to do here in terms of adventure and exploring, but if you prefer to simply relax and chill then you could easily find yourself under a shaded tree taking a snooze or at the pool during the heat of the day.
