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.

Ask any Namibian tour guide where his favourite place is and the answer will be Damaraland. Something to do with the wide open spaces, the isolation, and the tenuous balance of nature in a rugged and dramatic landscape; or it could be the Huab Lodge.

Built on the banks of the Huab River (which is almost always dry), luxury and simplicity combine at this small owner-managed lodge in a way that typifies the essence of hospitality and good living.

Slightly off the beaten track - even by Damaraland standards - the Huab Lodge has eight stone and thatch bungalows with tiled floors, textured fabrics and a secluded verandah with a view over the Huab River valley on the 8,000 hectare private nature reserve. The main lodge is an enormous open-sided thatch gazebo crammed with comfy chairs, a family dinner table, reference books and a cosy bar.

Here's a draw card, if you still need one, and the endless silence and wide open space is not enough? They have a hot spring and it looks divine. Under a thatched gazebo out in the open, it's the perfect spot to simply relax.

Room Facilities


Guided walks; game drives; self-guided hiking trails; bird watching; San rock art; community interaction; scenic tours; elephant tracking; stargazing

The lodge is in a private conservancy of 8,000 hectares and much of it has been restored to its former glory with the loving attention of Jan and Suzi van de Reep, who arrived in 1992 to a sorry state of degradation. Elephants now roam the Huab riverbed on ancient water routes and the area's native wild animals, plants and birds - over 200 species - have flourished.
