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).
Lodge has 14 canvas chalets extending out from the river bank on stilts over the river bed providing unrivalled, shady views of the cliffs opposite a short walk away from the main area, and towards the river bank towards the 14 tented rooms. These are built on wooden platforms which extend to form a private viewing platform over the riverbed. Each tent is simply but stylishly furnished with twin or double beds and has an en suite open-air bathroom. On the fringe of Kaokoland, the lodge offers a perfect jumping off point to explore the remote north west of the country. The immediate surrounding area of Damaraland has many rich and interesting activities including desert adapted elephants and Himba settlements within easy reach.
Accommodation at Khowarib Lodge is in 12 double rooms and 2 family tents. Both double and family units have either twin or double sleeping systems, built on stilts. En-suite bathrooms, tall floor fans, an in-room safe, and mosquito netting on the windows and doors are standard. Two of the tents are wheelchair friendly.
