Khowarib Lodge

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 Khowarib Lodge you are on the edge of Kaokoland, an area so vast and rugged it ranks as one of Earth's last true wilderness areas where time has stood still for millennia. Running water and ice in your gin and tonic take on whole new worlds of significance.

Kaokoland is the outer frontier of Namibia inhabited by a scattering of Himba nomads, free roaming rhino, desert-adapted elephant and staggering vistas of rocky mountains, flat plains and blue skies.

Khowarib Lodge is your last comfort stop for hundreds of miles in every direction.

Situated along the only perennial river inside Namibia, Khowarib Lodge enjoys an idyllic location surrounded by Kaokoland wilderness and only 2km from the main road. Close to Ongongo Falls, a hidden gem. A stop over between Damaraland and Opuwo or Epupa Falls.

Accommodation at Khowarib Lodge consists of 14 wood-and-canvas chalets on stilts with delightful open-air bathrooms, deep shade inside and a small private balcony entrance with views across the gorge. The living area, also under thatch features a comfortable lounge and dining area, curio shop and reception. The lodge is supplied by mains electricity and has plenty of water; combined with eco-friendly construction, you've got the best of both worlds: in the wild but not subjected to its harsh side.

The activities at Khowarib Lodge are its best asset. A Kaokoland safari is about one of the best experiences Namibia has to offer. Everything from the absence of people to the fascinating flora and fauna and the spectacular scenery is unique and you are unlikely to match this experience anywhere else in the world.

A team of well-trained local guides offer you an intimate and authentic Kaokoland experience. Discover the fascinating Himba villages and their way of life, go in search of the desert-adapted elephant or simply enjoy the impressive scenery at sunset.

Khowarib Lodge also arranges birding tours, rock art outings and guided walks along the Hoanib River and around the Khowarib Gorge.
