Erongo

...

... is a an area of undulating farmland centred on the pleasant town of Omaruru in Western Namibia.

Lodges out in these farmland areas tend to be of limited interest, either being rather tame stocked-and-fenced game reserves or guest farms with hunting.

Far more interesting is the Erongo Massif, a large free-standing granite outcrop some 30km in diameter, the weathered remains of an ancient volcano. These hills contain some impressive erosion features, some modest wildlife and caves containing Bushmen rock-art. The hiking here can be excellent.

To the west of Erongo lie considerably more open plains which lead out to the similarly impressive hills of Spitzkoppie, an iconic eroded group of hills which offer opportunities for rock climbing.


Erongo provides an alternative inland route for self-drivers who want connect between Sossusvlei and Twyfelfontein, whilst avoiding the busy section of the coast around Swakopmund.

It is therefore most often included in trips which access the Skeleton Coast in other areas such as the truly wild Skeleton Coast North, the dunefields south of Walvis Bay and the diamond areas south of Luderitz.


Erongo Wilderness Lodge ... is by far the nicest lodge option, so pleasant that it might be worth spending more than the usual one night.


This Erongo area is most commonly combined in trips with other popular locations around the country such as Fish River Canyon, Luderitz, Sossusvlei, Twyfelfontein and Etosha.
