Hohenstein Lodge


At the foot of Hohenstein: Erongo’s crown

The rust-coloured expanse of Hohenstein—the highest peak of Namibia’s Erongo mountains—looms before Hohenstein Lodge, proffering magnificent views of this remote and desolate location over 2,000m above sea level. Lying at the foot of this massif, the lodge is perfectly located to explore the country’s Central Highlands and its exceptional bird population, array of wildlife, and traditional home of the Herero people. 

Apart from the obvious attraction that is Hohenstein and the Erongo mountains, the Phillipp’s Cave rock paintings are also found nearby—evidence that the mountains served as important refuge for people as far back as 3500 BCE. The distinctive granite mounds known as the Spitzkoppe are undoubtedly one of Namibia’s most notable landmarks and invites mountain-climbing and outdoors enthusiasts to its base.

Hohenstein Lodge has 14 Bungalows each featuring an en-suite bathroom, private terrace, and safe. The main lodge is home to the reception, swimming pool, and restaurant. In the summer months, meals are had on the terrace accompanied by magnificent views, while in winter guests dine inside comforted by the warmth of a roaring fireplace.
