Accommodation options vary at the Brandberg White Lady Lodge but we mostly use the campsite for its secluded spots, sheltered by evergreen dollar bushes and shaded by beautiful acacia and mopane trees. Permanent tents with private ablutions are a great semi-camping option and the lodge does also have basic en suite chalets. But Damaraland is all about the scenery, the sky, the tranquility and what better way to experience this wonderful setting than under the stars around a campfire.
The lodge offers guided tours to the Brandberg's famous ancient rock art and engravings - of which the 'White Lady' is one - as well as guided desert elephant tracking expeditions. These ellies cover great distances every day in search of water and food so it's real luck-of-the-draw stuff if you get to see them. But the scenery alone more than makes up for it with a palette saturated with every conceivable iteration of brown from the light tan grasslands to burnt red rocky hills (Brandberg translates to Fire Mountain as it changes to a dusky red at sunset).
The campsites share rustic open-air ablutions with flushing toilets and wood-fired boilers ensuring a piping hot shower. A short walk from the campsite, the main lodge offers its amenities to all guests including a swimming pool and garden complete with resident meerkats, a restaurant, lounge, bar and battery-charging facilities. A rocky hill rises up behind the lodge providing a wonderful scenic view of the area - especially at sunset with a gin and tonic or other such celebratory drink.
