The fourteen rooms are spacious chalets where the traditional African theme has a creamy overtone. Air conditioning, a mini bar and satellite TV take care of the creature comforts. The main lodge is built under thatch with an enormous deck that looks out over the African plains.
A watchtower overlooks a waterhole that is frequently visited by rare antelope including sable, eland, roan, black-faced impala, white blesbok and nyala. Game drives traverse the 170,000ha reserve in search of the resident white and black rhino. Trails ranging from one to four hours fan out from the lodge and the plants have trees have been marked for easy identification. Birding is also good.
Waterhole; game drives; bird watching; nature trails; day trips
Daily excursions offer an extra dimension to the activities on offer - besides lazing by the pool with a tall drink and a good book. Visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund (on your own or on a guided activity with the lodge), the vulture's restaurant, the Waterberg Plateau Park, and the OvaHerero Cultural Centre.
Go on a Township Tour of Otjiwarongo - this one needs to be booked in advance.
