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.
Guided Elephant Drives - Especially during the drier periods of the year, groups of desert elephant rove in the valley of the Ugab river. Here, there is no worry for water and bush and trees to feed on in abundance.
The "White Lady" - Perhaps the world's most famous rock painting, is a half-day excursion from Brandberg White Lady lodge.
Small private lodge consisting of thatched domed bungalows scattered amongst large granite boulders. It is well situated near Twyfelfontein and several other major Damaraland attractions.
Damaraland is home to a community of people who have survived and thrived through a remarkable adaptation and deep connection to the land and to one another. Here lies their history, inscribed in the crumbling rock and stone. This is the community spirit that we offer to our visitors: warm, unexpected, village-esque, and always memorable. Delve into the community setting in the unique cottages, each with its own small vegetable garden. Enjoy the view of unique landscapes from the sunset deck, where the glow of light reflects off the majestic mopane trees. Or select one of three walking trails, to experience the woodland in a more personal setting.
This camp was started by Wilderness Safaris and is now managed by the local community. Expect luxury, desert elephants and rhino.
A good quality lodge located close to the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Excursions to the engravings and in search of desert adapted elephant are available.
A fairly basic establishment just outside the town of Khorixas.
Private campsites in a beautiful setting.
One of the most luxurious lodges in the area - accommodation is in luxury tents or more 'solid' suites.
This is Africa, infused with unmistakeable Namibian flair, visible all around you in the staff’s gleaming smiles and the tastefully curated suites
Nestled in rolling boulders of a granite outcrop, Twyfelfontein Adventure Camp is conveniently situated a ten minutes drive from Twyfelfontein Rock Engravings, within walking distance.
Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is much more than just accommodation; it is a destination in itself.
Close to the Vingerklip rock formation and offering exciting views of the Ugab Plains.
The Vingerklip is a 35m high finger like rock structure - this popular and well equipped lodge has two swimming pools and apart from being close to Vingerklip is in close proximity to Twyfelfontein, Burnt Mountain, Petrified Forest and other wonders of Damaraland.
These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
A wild campsite along the riverbed. No electricity or internet, but the dreamy chance to spot elefants while having breakfast outside your tent.
Like an oasis in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful and extremely warm, good food and hospitality. The guide at the White Lady entrance hike smelled of liquor and we did not want to do the walk with him.
Brandberg White Lady Lodge is is situated at the foot of the Brandberg Mountain - 12km off the D2359 roadDownload Map
