Bungalow accommodation set on the vast landscape of Namibia’s ancient Ugab terraces

Named after the nearby 35 m high pillar of rock known as the Vingerklip or Finger of Stone, this lodge offers bungalow accommodation on the ancient Namibian landscape of the Ugab terraces. Their 1.600 ha private reserve has 3 waterholes all located around the lodge and includes one waterhole that is flood-lit at night. From the waterholes, you can watch animals like giraffes, zebras, kudus, impalas, warthogs and baboons, or they can also be spotted while following the guided or unguided walking trails. Relax at the lounge and bar areas, swimming pools and jacuzzi, or taste locally brewed beer and gourmet cuisine at the restaurant.

Best time to go to Damaraland

You’ll be relieved to hear that the dramatic and glorious Damaraland is a year-long destination! However, the best time to visit is in May through to September, due to animals frequenting waterholes, so you’ll be spoiled with especially rare sightings. If you want Damaraland all to yourself, avoid visiting in July to September when some places can get rather busy. From October to January things can get heated during the day, so come prepared with clothes to stay cool and enough water to hydrate you during your daily experiences!
