For a faster route between Damaraland and the south, cutting out Swakopmund and the coast, drive via Erongo and stay at the peaceful Erongo Wilderness Lodge, in the Erongo Mountains. This enchanting eight-tent lodge, is built into huge rock boulders, with breath-taking views over the surrounding wilderness.
Walking either unaccompanied or with the knowledgeable guides, is the best way to experience the tranquillity of this 200,000-hectare mountain reserve. Birding is excellent, and the nature walks are recommended, especially a visit to the well-preserved ancient rock paintings in Paula’s Cave. Well worth a two night stay.
