We cannot over emphasise the warmth of our reception and the general helpfulness and pleasantness of the staff. In particular we would like praise Walter and his tracker Jannis for the amazing elephant tracking tour that he took us on. Although this lodge does not have all the luxury of some lodges such as wifi in the room and air... More

We were booked at the campsite, and managed to upgrade (for a fee) for the guide rooms instead - which made the whole experience very enjoyable, as the staff, food and view were great. To top it off, the sundowner drive, rhino and elephant trekking was really special - fully recommend the experience.

Great location with good food. The location is outstanding and worth staying just for the views. We were disappointed that we could not go on the walking safari which was offered - we felt that the staff wanted to sell us the more expensive jeep safari.

Brilliant place to camp if you are in the area. Friendly staff, clean facilities, nice showers, good kitchen area and braai place. Shaded seating area in the campsite. And then there is the viewing deck with bar and plunge pool. Highly recommended.

Recently stayed at the lodge - Its atmosphere and staff are amazing and the views to die for - but the downside is that the rooms just need a bit of an upgrade. The sliding door to the bathroom didn't work and the bathroom itself is in need of an overhaul.

We spent two nights here as part of a self-drive tour of Namibia, and had two rooms, a standard one, and a family room. All rooms are perched on the edge of the escarpment, and have the most fabulous views - really takes your breath away! The standard rooms were just the bedroom and bathroom, and were perhaps a little... More

Getting there may take some driving skills and a 4x4 capable of conquering steep hills&descents but the result is well worth the effort. The Grootberg Lodge is located in a fantastic setting overlooking the Grootberg mountains on a plateau. From here you can start guided tours, relax by the pool or in your lodge. This lodge is exploited by a... More

Our only regret was that we didn't stay a couple more nights. This is one of those rare things in Namibia, a well-run middle market lodge. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel really welcome, and all the staff felt really proud to be working here. The chalets are well-designed with stunning views and the whole place... More
