En route from Swakopmund to the Etosha Pan nestled between the majestic Ugab Terraces, lies a place of mystery amongst wind-sculpted rock and far horizons.

This place is called Vingerklip Lodge.

Accommodation at Vingerklip Lodge consists of 25 units made up of 12 double rooms, 12 family suites and 1 luxury suite. Each room has an en-suite bathroom and separate entrance. The difference between the family suite and double room is that the family suite has a mezzanine floor with an additional double bed. The luxury suite is located on top of the Ugab Terraces, and is more commonly known as “Heaven’s Gate”. Experience breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and unmatched splendor of the Namibian sunset from your private terrace.

We have two fully licensed restaurants at our lodge offering delicious cuisine. These are the main Vingerklip Lodge restaurant and the “Eagles Nest”. Day visitors are welcome at the Vingerklip Lodge restaurant, however it is advised to phone ahead to secure your booking.The Eagles Nest restaurant serves dinner buffet only and is located up on the plateau. Capacity is limited to 20 people, with a surcharge of N$100 per person.

Apart from a number of walks and day trips, we offer a number of activities such as sundowner drives, Bushman art tours and ziplining.

Our 1600 ha private reserve has 3 waterholes in various locations around the lodge with the main water-hole being flood lit at night.Various types of animals including Giraffe, Eland, Zebra, Kudus, Oryx, Springbok, Impala, Warthogs, Baboons and Steenbok frequently visit the waterholes and are also often spotted when following the walking trails.24 Thatched rooms stand nestled on a hillside to form an atmosphere of relaxation and tranquility. The spacious and comfortable bungalows, each with en-suite bathroom and a private verandah, allow you to spread out and feel at home. For family holidays, 5 of the 24 rooms have loft accommodation for two children.

We offer two swimming pools, various decks and lapas, all of course with a spectacular view of the surrounding area and Ugab Terraces.

Activities offered are spectacular sundowner trips and hiking trails. Don’t miss sundowner or dinner at the Eagles Nest Restaurant high on the plateau behind the lodge! (N$100 surcharge for bookings at Eagle’s Nest and advance bookings are required.)
