About Huab Lodge
Huab Lodge Namibia is a premier all inclusive Lodge with 8 Luxurious Bungalows and an extraordinary atmosphere in the scenic nature of Damaraland. With a hearty welcome to Huab Lodge located in Damaraland in the heart of Namibia, your hosts invite you to recover from the stresses of your day to day lives and to discover and absorb the soul of the African bush. Enjoy the comforts of the lodge, the relaxed atmosphere and the personal attention as well as the stunning landscape with its impressive variety of animal and plant life.
Discover for yourself or together with a knowledgeable guide the beauty and the fascination of 'the place where kopjes grow like giant mushrooms and elephants tread like ants' as so succinctly expressed by Oria Douglas-Hamilton.
Huab Lodge began as an idea to generate funds to save the desert-adapted elephant from being harassed and shot. Since 1992 awareness regarding environmental conservation has increased, as has tourism and the "value" of the elephant is changing.
The original farmland is a small, unique area called Monte Carlo which boasts stunning views bisected by the mostly dry Huab River. The former rest camp which accommodated tourists in the 1970s now houses the lodge's staff. At a permanent spring, just down river from the old rest camp where the German Schutz Truppe built the so-called German Bath in the late 1890's, Huab Lodge was erected.
Despite its size the unique main building blends into its surroundings. The irregular thatch roof mirrors a mountain on the opposite bank of the river. The stone and thatch bungalows spread along the elevated north bank of the river ensuring a private and magnificent view - even from the shower.
Huab Lodge with all it has to offer and being off the beaten track is not a place for a single night-stop. You should allow several days to enjoy and absorb the tranquility and quiet, the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, and the many activities. There is an airstrip near the lodge for those that wish to fly in. Special attention has been given during the construction phase of the lodge to provide access to physically disabled guests.
