Khowarib Lodge

Khowarib Lodge situated approximately 10km from Sesfontein, only 1km off the main track towards Palmwag, and to the east of the Khowarib Settlement. It is nestled on the banks of the Hoanib River in the spectacular Khowarib Gorge.  Set on the limits of Kaokoland, this lodge has been described as 'the perfect jumping-off point' to explore the remote and rugged territories of north-west Namibia. It is an ideal destination for an expedition to track desert-adapted elephants and black rhinos.  The main lodge consists of a reception area, guest lounge, bar, dining area and curio shop. The centre piece of the complex is a 'lapa', an enormous thatched structure with great views of the surrounding environment. There is a laundry service, secure parking and an Internet facility at reception(not with wireless connection).
