It's cool to be hot in the Huab valley

Huab Lodge began with the objective of generating funds to protect Namibia’s desert-adapted elephants from poachers and has played an active role in bringing back the wildlife that calls the banks of the Huab River home. You’ll need a good few days at the lodge since it's well off the beaten track and offers a variety of riveting activities to occupy every visitor.

Activities in the area include expertly guided bush walks and scenic nature drives in open vehicles, superb birding, stargazing and swims in the natural thermal spring that bubbles up out of the ground at about 60 degrees centigrade, with a neighbouring cold pool. This region of Damaraland also showcases unique rock paintings done by the San people hundreds of years ago.

Accommodation is centred on comfort in eight stone and thatch bungalows, sleeping 16 guests. The rooms have wide private patios and are filled with natural light that streams through large windows – even the shower has a view! Double the tranquillity of your stay by arranging a treatment with the resident wellness therapist, and make friends with your hosts over a meal at the family table.
