The lodge is located on the bottom of the Hohenstein, the highest peak of the Erongo mountains. Measuring up to 2,319 m above sea level, the Hohenstein represents the impressive western edge of the Erongo mountain range. In the evening, spectacular sunsets above the desert plain bathe the mountain in fantastic red light. Towards the west, the view over the impressive scenery extends as far as the Spitzkoppe peak, a prominent relief from the plain in a distance of about 30 km.
Take a seat on the restaurant’s terrace and sip a cool drink while enjoying this spectacular view as well as the view down the valley dotted with ancient camel thorn trees and the Kaichanab located on the farm grounds and rising up to 1,469 m. The panoramic view from the peak of the Kaichanab is beyond words, you’ll have to go and see for yourself. Having dinner in the restaurant or on the spacious porch while watching game on the watering whole is just as much a memorable experience. During the day, numerous birds can be seen at the watering hole.
If you stay a little longer, make sure to schedule day trips to Spitzkoppe and Brandberg, do some game and bird watching or go on extensive hikes. Our hiking guide also offers mineralogical and other mountain hikes.
