Activities & Experiences
Namibian hospitality is legendary, and nowhere does it become more apparent than at Grootberg Lodge. While eco-tourism is Grootberg’s main focus, members of the local community ensure that your stay will create golden memories. Furthermore Grootberg Lodge ensured that the #Khoadi //Hoas Conservancy be recognized among the 2020 suitable destinations. Receiving recognition as one of the top 100 in responsible tourism and distinctive appeal.
The thrill of adventure sets in as soon as you arrive at the lower gate before negotiating the 4×4 route up to the lodge.
During your stay, nature will immerse you, and you will encounter some of the larger inhabitants of this unique landscape. While the abundance of diverse species found in the ≠Khoadi //Hoas Conservancy provide for a unique and serene experience.
What you can expect to see now, ranges from common antelopes such as kudu, oryx and springbok. As well as elusive mammals such as aardwolves, civets and wild cats. If you are lucky you might even encounter some of the big predators, like lions and leopards.
Our most popular excursions are the half-day drive in search of desert-adapted elephants. Similarly the almost full-day guided tracking of free-roaming black rhino, one of the planet’s most endangered species, is often recommended by previous guests.
Scenic evening drives across the plateau present fantastic photographic opportunities. While discovering the rich plant and animal life that thrives there.
When traversing the plateau, you will encounter a wide variety of wild residents: springbok, zebra, kudu, and oryx, which you can easily spot during drives and guided walks. Although shy, you often see klipspringer leaping gracefully from ledge to ledge on the steep cliffs.Possible sightings of predators are not unlikely, especially lions, as the population has increased after years of draught.
A visit to the #Khoadi//Hoas community is a favourite activity for most guests to participate in. The warm cordiality with which we receive visitors touches every heart. You will learn more about the local culture and customs as we invite you into the midst of the community.
