Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is situated in the ancient Huab valley in the Kunene region of Namibia (formerly known as Damaraland). The area, known as the Twyfelfontein Uibasen Conservancy, boasts a multitude of rock engravings and paintings. These are a silent testimony to the first hunter-gatherer and subsequent Khoikhoi inhabitants of 6000 years ago, who used the area as a place of worship and shaman rituals. To preserve this unique region, Twyfelfontein was declared Namibia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.
The developers of the Twyfelfontein Country Lodge used natural stone and thatch and chose paint hues to match that of the surrounding rocks and Namibian plains. Guest accommodation comprises 56 en-suite double rooms, a lounge, open dining room and bar where you can swop stories with fellow visitors.
The lodge is an excellent place from which to explore the attractions of Damaraland. The Twyfelfontein area, a very vulnerable and delicate ecosystem, is renowned for some of the best examples of bushman paintings and engravings in Southern Africa. Interesting rock formations and the remains of prehistoric volcanic action can be seen in the Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountain, Doros Crater and the Petrified Forest among the most prominent geographic features.
