A place of mystery, wind-sculpted rock and far horizons... Nestling
in a timeless valley is the Vingerklip Lodge on the 3000 ha Farm
that is surrounded by a game fence helping us to protect and preserve
the animals. 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.
One of the most dramatic rock formations in Namibia is the 35m high pillar
of rock, the Vingerklip or Finger of Stone. It stands proudly above a
valley in the ancient landscape known as the Ugab terraces. A place of
mystery, wind-sculpted rock and far horizons, it is a nature experience
which lingers long in the memory.
