Brandberg White Lady Lodge
Accommodation Damaraland - Namibia
A stay at Brandberg White Lady Lodge puts visitors within easy reach of the 'White Lady', the most famous of the region's rock paintings. The Brandberg Mountain also features many other fascinating artworks, drawn hundreds of years ago by the San Bushmen. The scenery surrounding the lodge is amongst the most stunningly beautiful in Namibia, especially around sunrise and sunset.
The main area at the Brandberg White Lady Lodge has a fully licensed, well-stocked bar, with a comfortable lounge area for their guests to relax and unwind. The restaurant serves fine cuisine, and the large swimming pool, is the place to go to cool off from the hot, afternoon sun. The accommodation here is best described as rustic, and those looking for any form of luxury would be best advised to look elsewhere - but due to a pretty location and lack of alternatives in the area the lodge plays an important role on many Namibian self drive itineraries.
Accommodation is shielded from the elements by large, shady trees set in the Ugab river valley. En-suite bathrooms, mosquito net, tea/coffee station, electric lights, ceiling fans and a private verandah with braai facilities are standard. There are:
- Double rooms: 15 double rooms including 4 poolside.
- Family room: The Family Room is a double room converted for 2 adults/1child or for 2 adults/2 children.
- Chalets: 8 individual, rustic chalets interspersed in the river valley for additional privacy.
- Tents: 6 furnished canvas tents with private braai area.
Despite the arid conditions, Damaraland hosts a wide variety of wildlife. The famous desert elephant, the rare black rhino, springbok, oryx, zebra & ostrich can also be seen on guided hiking or 4x4 vehicle tours, in the most of the region.
Much of the landscape was formed by ancient lave flows, which add to the beauty of the surrounding countryside. It's many unusual rock formations and rare flora, including the endemic Welwitschia mirabilis at the Petrified Forest, make it a perfect area for hiking and photography alike. The region is also renowned for its geology, as well as the World Heritage Site of rock engravings at Twyfelfontein.
Activities in and around the area include hiking and guided 4x4 trails into the Ugab River valley, home to a wide variety of game, birdlife, reptiles and insects, the Brandberg Mountain itself, and Damaraland, with the Doros and Messum Crater.
Children of all ages are welcome at the Brandberg White Lady Lodge.
