Set in the jagged and rocky surroundings of Namibia’s Kunene region, Twyfelfontein Lodge is only 4km from the 6,000-year-old Twyfelfontein rock engravings of the Khoi-San people, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The lodge aims to protect its historically and culturally significant surroundings through a partnership with the nearby conservancy ensuring that local communities benefit from tourism.
A mesmerizing experience is to be had at the Twyfelfontein rock engravings, where guests can learn about the area which was once used as a place of worship by the Khoi-San people. The geology of the area is also fascinating, with magnificent rock formations borne from ancient volcanic activity at the nearby Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountains, and Doros Crater making for a remarkable viewing experience.
The design and decor of the lodge mimic the colours and shapes of its rugged surroundings, ensuring that it blends into its mesmerising backdrop. Made of thatch and stone, Twyfelfontein’s 56 en suite rooms and VIP Suite offer a cool respite from the African sun. Guests can enjoy nature walks, safaris, and sundowners at the lodge’s swimming pool overlooking the expansive Kunene landscape.
