Location

A lodge in the heart of Damaraland nestled along the mountainside and beautifully blending in its ancient surroundings.

Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is located in the Huab valley in Namibia’s Kunene region, west of Khorixas. Twyfelfontein in Damaraland is home to one of the largest collections of rock-art engravings found in Southern Africa and the whole area is characterised by natural wonders such as Doros Crater, Burnt Mountain, Organ Pipes, Petrified Forest and desert adapted animals. The desert adapted elephant is probably the most well-known species of the area.

Nestled along the mountainside, Twyfelfontein Country Lodge blends in beautifully with its surrounding environment. Using natural stone, carefully selected paint colours and thatched roofs, its design compliments the sandstone rock formations with minimum visual impact on this picturesque landscape. Magnificent views from the deck over the Huab Valley, desert plains and distant mountains provides for hours of relaxed comfort, peace and tranquillity.

Guests are accommodated in 56 en-suite rooms decorated with natural materials according to the local African theme and rounded off with luxury linen. Guests are spoiled with comfort and serenity amidst an arid desert backdrop – a comfortable experience with a lifetime of memories. Construction of the lodge is such that half the rooms have a view over the plains and the other half a view of the red sandstone mountains. Large spotlights light up the mountains at night providing for a majestic atmosphere. All rooms have ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms, mosquito nets and electronic safes for safekeeping of valuables.

The public spaces consist of a restaurant, lounge and bar, which is the best place from which to enjoy the beautiful sunsets of Namibia. Just down the steps from the lounge you can find the pool between the rocks.

The lodge caters for a host of activities mainly focusing on the famous paintings and engravings of the region. Guests can take a trip to Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Burnt Mountain and The Organ Pipes accompanied by a resident guide. Marvel at the rich vegetation with the possibility to encounter desert adapted elephants in the dry Aba-Huab River valley. Experienced field guides will take you on an exciting nature drive, filled with interesting facts pertaining to the area, its history and wildlife. Guided morning and afternoon hiking trails are also available. During these trails you can encounter fascinating plants in the area, including the Welwitschia Mirabilis, the Moringa and a variety of Commiphora species.
