In the Footprints of Giants
Welcome to Journeys Namibia’s flagship lodge, the first middle market establishment to be wholly owned by a conservancy. For the initial development the European Union funded the project through the Ministry of Environment and Tourism’s Development Programme. At the same time, the private sector was called in to provide the training and management skills until the local community becomes self-sustainable.Your hosts at Grootberg Lodge are members of the rural community, trained by Journeys Namibia to deliver excellent service for international guests in a home-away-from-home atmosphere. Visit www.journeysnamibia.com for more information on our other lodges. Marvel at the breath-taking view of the Klip River Valley below while lounging on the deck or cooling down in our infinity pool. The rooms are comfortably appointed.

Between a rock and a hard place
The word “Hoada” is the Damara-Nama term for “everybody”, reflecting the core values of Journey’s Namibia and the ≠Khoadi-//Hôas Conservancy in their commitment to benefitting the community, the environment, and the adventurous travellers experiencing our beautiful country. The campsite is owned by the ≠Khoadi-//Hôas conservancy, along with Hobatere and Grootberg Lodge, and is a testament to the efforts in creating sustainable tourism and self-sufficiency for the local communities. Managed by Journey’s Namibia, this group of spectacular accommodations in the wilderness of Damaraland will awe you, whether you are seeking camping or comfort. Through our collaborative endeavours to enhance the well-being of the local community, we prioritise the employment of local staff.The name ≠Khoadi-//Hôas, means “Elephant’s Corner”, and you can hope to see these desert-adapted elephants as they wander the area. Although we cannot guarantee sightings as the animals roam free in these vast open spaces, do keep watch for them as they are a spectacular sight. A stay at the Hoada Campsite will ensure you leave with your heart light, your soul restored after evenings stargazing around the fire, and renewed energy to further your travels through this remarkable country.
Become one of the Pride
The ≠Khoadi-//Hôas Conservancy, home of Hobatere Lodge, is situated on the western border of Etosha National Park, a very short distance from the Galton Gate. This jewel of a lodge in its idyllic setting has earned it the nickname of “Little Etosha” due to its location and bounteous wildlife.Upon entering the gates, you will immediately sense the tranquil ambiance of this quiet corner of the world. The drive to the lodge from this point is a mere 16 kilometres, however, based on the road conditions it can take a little time to navigate. This is the perfect opportunity to take your foot off the accelerator and look for the abundant game that inhabit this area while you drive through the spectacular bushveld and riverine vegetation. You will be welcomed into the heart of this lodge with warm cloths to wipe away the dust of your travels and a refreshing drink while you book in, and can immediately retire to your room for a well-deserved rest or enjoy any of the amenities on offer.The name “Hobatere” translates to “find him/me” in the native Nama and is appropriate here, as the lodge peeks out of a forest of indigenous trees near a riverbed, overlooking a wide plain and very active waterhole. This rustic and cosy lodge will draw you into a setting of tranquillity paired with the magic of the African bushveld and savannah, where you can dine under a thatched roof or the evening stars, and go to sleep to the roar of the lions. A stay at this enchanting facility will have you put aside the stresses of life as you fall prey to the allure of Hobatere Lodge, the open spaces, incredible wildlife, friendly people, and fascinating history.

Unravel the mystery
Welcome to Shipwreck Lodge and unravel the mystery! Shipwreck Lodge is the only accommodation facility located on the desolate and world-renowned Skeleton Coast, steeped in history. Situated in the far north-west of Namibia, a short distance from the cold Atlantic Ocean, the lodge offers ultimate luxury and unparalleled service to our guests while they explore the mysteries of this coastline. The history of the Skeleton Coast is harsh and dramatic, and as you traverse these shores, you can imagine why the Portuguese sailors of old dubbed it “The Gates of Hell”. Over a thousand wrecks scatter the coastline, but only a few are visible to us, slowly breaking up or rusting away under the relentless assault of sea mists and saltwater over the years.Stories abound of the wrecks and their crew and passengers being stranded on these unforgiving shores. From ships to diamond mines, this coastline has a dramatic and colourful history. The bones and carcasses of animals litter the shores, another testament to its unyielding nature.The wildlife in this uninhabited landscape flourishes despite the harsh conditions. You can hope to see lion, elephant, brown hyena, jackals, gemsbok, and any number of smaller game on excursions. Our guides offer fascinating insights into the lives of these animals as they take you out and about.
