Easily include Erongo Wilderness Lodge in your Namibian itinerary. Only 3 hours from Etosha National Park, 3 hours from Windhoek, 3 hours from Swakopmund and 3.5 hours from Twyfelfontein in Northern Damaraland.
Travelling from Windhoek, use one of the following routes:
From Windhoek, take the B1 to Okahandja, which becomes the B2 as you head towards Swakopmund. Shortly before Karibib take the C33 towards Omaruru. Travel along this road for 63 km, and just before the town of Omaruru, turn left onto the D2315. After 10 km of gravel road turn left into Erongo Wilderness Lodge. (Please ignore the sign which says “ Erongo Lodge 42 km” as this is a different establishment.)
This route is approximately 40 kilometres shorter in total than the previous one, but involves an extra 70 kilometres of gravel road. About 70km after Okahandja take the turnoff C36 towards Wilhelmstal on your right. Travel on this gravel road for about 67km until you reach a T-Junction with the Karibib – Omaruru tar road (C33). Turn right on this road towards Omaruru. About 3km along this road and about 3 km before reaching the town of Omaruru turn left onto the D2315. Travel along this road for 10 km until you see the Erongo Wilderness Lodge sign indicating you to turn left into the Lodge.

For a more scenic route from Swakopmund, follow the directions above towards Karibib and Usakos. At Usakos, turn left on the D2306 towards Okombahe. After +/- 50km turn right on the D2315 towards Omaruru and continue along this road for +/- 48km until you see the signs to turn right into the Erongo Wilderness Lodge gate. This route is accessible with a normal 2 wheel drive vehicle, will add on +/- 30 min to your journey and will take you on gravel roads through the scenic Erongo Mountains.
