ETENDEKA PLATEAU – Perched on the rim of the Etendeka Plateau, the Grootberg Lodge stands sentinel over the Klip River Valley. 12 000 hectares have been set aside by the #Khoadi // Hoas conservancy for conservation and tourism and it is through this pristine wilderness that you meander either on foot or by car to encounter the inhabitants of this remote biosphere. The local community owns the lodge and your stay at Grootberg Lodge will contribute both to conservation and local rural development, enabling people and wildlife to live together in this special part of Africa.
The lounge/dining area has also some comfortable sofas and a small bar, where tea & coffee is served all day on a help yourself basis. Outside is a wide veranda leading down to the infinity swimming pool both with the most stunning views across the valley. Each of the 12 en-suite chalets are built from local rocks with thatched roofs and from the outside appear to be almost dry-stone walls. The chalets are rustic but comfortable with wooden furniture and a practical bathroom – a shower with a view and hot water from donkey boiler! Each chalet has a small, private deck with two chairs with endless views over Klip Valley Vlei.
