Ugab terrace lodge

Ugab Terrace Lodge enjoys a fantastic setting, nestled on the top of a plateau with superb views. Expect friendly and helpful staff combined with homely and comfortable accommodation.

The lodge is situated in the heart of many of Namibia's tourist attractions in the Damaraland Region. It works well as a stopover when visiting Vingerklip, Brandberg Mountain, Twyfelfontein or the Petrified Forest. Travellers can then head off to Etosha Park or Swakopmund, depending on their itinerary.

The lodge pride themselves on their attention to detail, personalized service and exquisite cuisine. Their chefs prepare delicious meals with fresh vegetables and salads, seasoned with aromatic ingredients from the herb garden. Meals and drinks can be ordered from a set menu in the restaurant and bar, including light lunches of sandwiches or pasta, and a selection of starters, game meats and a dessert for dinner. The lounge is a great spot to sip a sundowner as the sun sets, chat to other guests and there is also a fireplace and open-fire to ward off that winter chill.

An unusual feature at the lodge is the swimming pool, constructed in the rocks at the top of the mountain. It has some great views and guests can take a dip, sunbathe or just unwind and read a book on a sun-lounger. Local artifacts can be bought from the Ugab Terrace Lodge curio shop and there is a laundry service, 24hr security and parking, and 2 of the bungalows have disabled access. Power is supplied from either a generator or batteries/inverter, providing 24hr electricity to charge cell-phones and cameras.

Accommodation is in 16 well-appointed furnished bungalows, all with an en-suite bathroom with shower and a toilet/washbasin and ceiling fans. The private verandah affords breathtaking views of the Ugab Terraces.

Activities include bird-watching, exploring the local area on hiking trails and mountain bikes.
