Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is situated in the ancient Huab valley in the Kunene region of Namibia (formerly known as Damaraland).
The area, known as the Twyfelfontein Uibasen Conservancy, boasts a multitude of rock engravings and paintings. These are a silent testimony to the first hunter-gatherer and subsequent Khoikhoi inhabitants who used the area as a place of worship and shaman rituals.
To preserve this unique region, Twyfelfontein was declared Namibia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.
Guest facilities comprise 56 en suite double rooms, a lounge, open dining room and bar. The lodge is built with natural stone and thatch and is painted in hues to match that of the surrounding rocks and Namibian plains.
Various activities are catered for. Visitors can relax alongside a sparkling pool. The more energetic can explore the area on bicycle, or on guided nature walks and safaris.
Plant lovers will find many Namibian plant species here, such as the unique welwitschia.
Animal species in the region are adapted to the Namibian desert climate and include elephant, rhinoceros and giraffe.
Spectacular rock formations bear witness to volcanic activity and geological events of prehistoric times. Those interested in geology will, no doubt, pay a visit to the Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountain, Doros Crater and Petrified Forest – all rock formations unique to Namibia, situated in the vicinity of the lodge.
Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is approximately 100 km from Khorixas and can be reached by air or via road.
