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.
Nestled on a rock terrace high up on the slope of Waterberg, the chalets of Waterberg Plateau Lodge have fantastic views of the endless Kalahari bush below. Each of the double room chalets sits between red sandstone rocks in the midst of green bush, with total privacy guaranteed.
The 7 chalets have a shower and WC. Chalets are supplied with hot water every day so that guests can make tea or coffee at any time. There is a central lounge area with a fireplace for chilly winter evenings. The lodge also has a private terrace with plunge pool in which to refresh.
