About Waterberg Wilderness Lodge
Waterberg Wilderness Lodge is your chance to escape from modern civilisation and journey into the heart of the natural world. This oasis on the border of the Kalahari is the perfect place to walk through history. Learn about the Herero people who, like the Nama, are a traditional tribal community which was almost lost through the brutal colonisation of Namibia. The quantity of flora and fauna will astound wildlife lovers, as will the quality; you’ll be able to spot rare species like black mongoose, rock hyrax and dik-diks. You can also take part in rhino tracking, as well as the rhino drive, which will take you up close to the white rhino.
The Lodge is also an example of the possibilities of eco-friendly tourism, as solar energy generates all the electricity here. A local spring basin close to the lodge is the water source, and recent tests have revealed its high quality and great taste. Also, firewood heats the water, making this establishment part of the debushing process which keeps the plains a perfect habitat for so much life.
