Excellent break away, an highlight of our vacation. We enjoyed the location, on top of the plateau and were extremely lucky to see lions during our game drive. What an experience... Ideal to relax in couple.

Excellent service and gorgeous view from deck and room! Staff wakes everybody up with local songs and also prepared performance at dinner, so fun! Also great activities possible however think a 2 night stay would be better for rhino watching

We stayed as a family with 2 kids for one night at Grootberg Lodge. We had 2 bungalows. The rooms were comfy and with a small balcony... all with a stunning view into the breathtaking valley. The road up there is advantorous, but a great start to this great place. We were lucky to have a nice thunderstorm... Amazing. Food...

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We feel blessed with the storms in the area, Grootberg lodge and the area around it really needed some rain. Hope you took some amazing pictures of the storm.

Everything perfect; the drive up to the lodge is a nice 4x4 adventure. There is only one negative aspect about the lodge: it is not allowed to walk freely on the plateau. It was reasoned by safety but it felt as if the lodge was desperately trying to sell guided walks or tours. No real problem for a one night...

Recommend this place, staff is exceptionally good and friendly. The place could be modernizedone but over all good. Activities are very expensive and there is nothing around to do. No plugs to charge cameras and cell phone in the rooms you need to charge everything at the reception.

Grootberg is just one of those place where it feels that time is suspended. Ok everything is not perfect. But who wants perfection in such a place? The local community team is doing an amazing job, food is good, the charm is working. Stay one night in Grootberg lodge, you won't regret it!

The view from the lodge and the rooms is simply amazing! It's a challenge getting up there but the view is worth it. Staff is really friendly and enthusiast, very nice dinner. We really enjoyed or evening guided walk on top of the plateau, seeing a lot zebras, springbok and oryx from close by.

I have to start saying that our stay at Grootberg Lodge was one of the best we had so far on our trips around Africa. The main reason off course is its location... Just PERFECT! The views and the location of the rooms are beautiful and breathtaking. The little swimming pool is the perfect place for you to relax and...

What a location. What a view from the rooms! OMG I am in love with this lodge and wishes I had the time to spend more days there! Damaraland is the most beautiful landscape of Namibia! Grootberg is the perfect place to discover this area.
