The Hohenstein Lodge is situated on
the south-western edge of the Erongo Mountains at the foot of the huge
Hohenstein massive, about 25 km north of Usakos on the road D 1935. It is the
closest lodge to the famous Spitzkoppe Mountains.
At Hohenstein all the bungalows and the restaurant share the same breathtaking view. To the right you will see Mount Hohenstein (2.319 meter above sea level). In front of you across a wide valley dotted with ancient Camel thorn trees, is Mount Kainachab (1.469 meter). A little further to the left is the famous Spitzkoppe.
Anyone choosing to stay longer can do day trips to Spitzkoppe and Brandberg, go on long hikes, or do game- and bird-watching. The panorama from the peak of Kainachab cannot be described - it's something that has to be experienced.
Hosts are active members of Erongo Mountain Nature Conservancy (EMNC) which works to protect the wealth of endemic and rare wildlife species and the archaeological sites of the Erongo Mountain. At lodge's border the community area of the Damaraland starts.
Having dinner inside the restaurant or outside on our spacious veranda while game comes to the water hole to drink is an experience you will never forget. During the day, birds are attracted to the water. Remember to bring your binoculars!
The area of the Hohenstein Lodge is without any doubt one of the most impressive landscapes of the country. The name of the lodge is the name of the highest mountain of the Erongo, the Hohenstein. After hosts bought the farm years ago hosts started to transfer the farm into a reserve and the local people from the Damaraland were part of the project and these local people were building the lodge under the supervision of skilled people from outside. Lodge's stuff is very proud on what was done already and like to share their feelings with the guests.
