Khowarib Lodge offers an interesting choice for those eager to get a little off the beaten track, as its location is slightly off the usual route between Damaraland and Etosha. Indeed, it is worth spending a few days here as it is an excellent launching point for a varied number of activities, including game-drives to search for desert-adapted elephants or black rhino.
It is a good option for those with a desire to visit a Himba settlement, as its position on the fringes of the sparse and wild north-western region brings it close to a number of Himba villages.
The central lapa dominates the area, sheltering the dining area and lounge, with a viewing deck tucked to one side that gives out onto the Hoanib river (one of the few in the country that often has water in it, so birdwatchers take note!). Accommodation is in 14 canvas ensuite tents that border the river, each with a veranda to add to the views.
