Waterberg Wilderness 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.

Waterberg Wilderness Lodge lines a valley fed by copious underground water and the result is giant acacias, bamboo groves and a lush garden. The chalets, built from the red sandstone that dominates the Waterberg region, are spread along the valley floor beneath the trees. All are en suite with showers and toilets and power is delivered by sunshine - another resource in plentiful supply here in Namibia. The main lodge houses the dining room, two swimming pools, cosy lounge and library.

Upping the romance and comfort ante, Waterberg Plateau Lodge as the name implies is built higher up on the plateau with expansive views of the endless Namibian horizon with nothing but African bush stretching in all directions as far as your binoculars will see.

Built in a similar style with sandstone walls, the chalets have cool tiled floors and the traditional iron roofs from times gone by. It's rather basic, but covers all the bases. It's neat and tidy and cool, since you're in the valley beneath the shade of trees and the plateau (depending on the time of day).

Dinner is a typically Namibian display of game meats and homegrown veggies complimented in every instance by your choice of robust South African reds. Afternoon tea is a wonderful tradition at both Waterberg lodges setting the scene for a magical sunset and lively dinner conversation.

The lodge also has a well-run campsite in a separate valley with a swimming pool, kiosk and private shady camping sites.

Room Facilities


The wildlife in the Waterberg, though elusive in this densely wooded and hilly region, includes some of Namibia's more rare animals including rhino, roan and sable antelope, leopard, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, oryx, eland, hartebeest, wildebeest and many more. Birding is also excellent thanks to the permanent water and vegetation. Activities include guided plateau hikes (approx. 3 hours), scenic drives into the game reserve; walking safaris; marked hiking trails of varying distance; and guided cultural tours into Hereroland where you can visit the school, marketplace and community centre and sample some traditional street fare.
