Grootberg Lodge

Keeping watch over the Klip River Valley, Grootberg Lodge is positioned high on the edge of the Etendeka Plateau in 30,000 acres of a community-run concession. The lodge is a landmark in Namibia's tourism industry in that it is the first middle-market establishment that is fully owned by the conservancy. Approximately 12,000 hectares have been set aside by the Khoadi/Hoas people for conservation and tourism. The revenues generated by the lodge greatly benefit the local community.
