Exceptional experience where staff go to any length to provide extraordinary service. Not to be missed and book early, limited rooms. Always fully booked for good reason! Incredible views, delicious food and massage options. In addition it is all community owned and operated !

Perched above a dramatic valley the 'hobbit house' we stayed in could not have been better located. The staff were very helpful and efficient. I don't remember the two meals we had so probably okay. If you have a 4x4 and some experience then the drive up to the lodge is fine, otherwise get them to transport you.

We had a great time enjoying one night in the lodge. The view from the small lodge houses as well as from the main building is breathtaking. Also swimming in the pool with the view all over this big valley is amazing. The ride up to the lodge with our 4x4 is definitely very exciting. Take L4 and first gear...

We had a great experience. Staff were wonderful and Kanu and Charles were very informative and great fun on the Rhino and Elephant tracking - both of which were successful. The room was amazing and it felt as if it was just hanging on the edge of the mountain side. The resort is up the mountain, so the electrical supply...

n the email below one can read why we were 2 nights at Hoada Campsite belonging to Grootberg Lodge. The campsite would be very nice if it would be maintained better. Also the staff could look cleaner. Here comes the issue with Hoada: Hello, You are asking me to review Hoada Campsite and I am waiting to get a reply...

We were very much looking forward to our stay at Grootberg Lodge after seeing beautiful pictures and reading positive comments on Tripadvisor. It should have been the most memorable accommodation of our trip, it was, but for different reasons. As advice for fellow travelers this is our experience: On September 14, 2016 we had a booking at Grootberg Lodge with...

On a recent trip to Namibia, I stayed at Grootberg Lodge along with 3 friends. The lodge is beautiful, the location spectacular. Food was excellent. We did an afternoon 'game drive'. Don't let the name fool you. Yes, you see a few zebra and springbok, but this is about the landscape. The surface is red rock that can only be...

Thank you for the 5-star review. We take it as a huge compliment that a group of photographers call the lodge and the scenery pretty. We loved having you there. Please feel free to share some of your photos on our Facebook page. (if you are comfortable doing so.) Keep snapping, until we see you again for a return visit.
