Waterberg is a huge mountain east of Otjiwarongo in the northern reaches of central Namibia. It is about 50km long, up to 16km wide and rises from the plains of the Omaheke, as this part of the Kalahari is known, to a height of up to 200 metres. The Waterberg is famous for the nature reserve established on the plateau in 1972. Waterberg Plateau Park is the home to game such as buffalo, white and black rhino, giraffe as well as eland, roan and sable antelope, and it borders directly on Waterberg Wilderness.
The buildings of Waterberg Wilderness Lodge lie sheltered in a long valley in the midst of the Waterberg massif. Built from red Waterberg sandstone they are nestled under enormous old trees. Accommodation consists of 8 double rooms and 2 family rooms with shower/WC, a lounge area and veranda. There is a dining room and bar with fireplace, tea garden, and a spring water swimming pool with sunbathing lawn.
The place for a drink after sunset is the campfire or the fireplace at the bar. Fresh dishes from the Namibian farmhouse kitchen are served for dinner.
