Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
Damaraland is a region of ancient oddities and Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is slap bang in the middle. Its cool interior, camouflage exterior and all-important swimming pool turn this humble lodge into a veritable oasis.
Built from thatch and local stone, the 64 en suite rooms and main living area do a remarkable job of blending in with the red-rock and bleached grass that surround the lodge. The rooms are basic, comfortable and make way for the splendid restaurant, bar and swimming pool area.
Twyfelfontein is where you go to experience the phenomenal age of the Namib's interior. Ancient volcanic rock formations are the canvas for San rock paintings and engravings and the delicate ecosystem supports some amazing flora and fauna. Like the Welwitschia, which lives for about 2,000 years and sprouts a single pair of leaves that lie in a tangled heap on the ground.
Ideally located about as close as you can get to the sights of the area. By no means small or intimate. Here it is all about location, location, location.
64 en-suite double rooms of which 4 are inter-leading (ideal for families) plus 1 VIP suite; air-conditioning; safes; reception; lounge; curio shop; open dining room; bar and swimming pool; airstrip
The VIP suite also has WiFi; a private swimming pool; minibar & outside shower.
Nature drives; guided hiking trails; nature walks; Damara Living Museum and guided excursions into the surrounding wilderness areas, San rock art and geological structures.
The lodge is in a private conservancy and some of the interesting geological features in the Twyfelfontein area include the Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountain, Doros Crater and the Petrified Forest. You will also see a variety of desert-adapted animals including elephant, rhino, springbok, oryx and ostrich co-existing with the local Damara people.
