Grootberg Lodge is proud to be 100% owned by the ≠Khoadi-//Hôas Conservancy, an 8,808-hectare expanse of land nestled along the western border of the renowned Etosha National Park. Established in 1998, this Conservancy represents a pioneering initiative for its community and the nation. It operates as a self-governing entity, although it is subject to oversight by the Ministry of Environment, Forestry, and Tourism, adhering to specific rules and regulations.
Frequently, these conservancies join forces with the private sector that offer support and assistance, and such is the case with the ≠Khoadi-//Hôas Conservancy and Journeys Namibia. Over the past years, a deep and meaningful partnership has blossomed between Journeys and the Conservancy's residents, marked by a commitment to community development through various initiatives and training programs.
The workforce at Grootberg Lodge is predominantly drawn from the local community, not only providing them with supplementary income but also enhancing their skill sets through training opportunities. While Journeys Namibia oversees the lodge's management, it plays a pivotal role in generating revenue for the conservancy and its inhabitants. With a genuine stake in the community's future, the dedicated staff are eager and enthusiastic to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.
With the spectacular setting, numerous activities, and friendly staff, your time at Grootberg will be unforgettable. So sit back, soak up the atmosphere and view, and savour the moments in this amazing corner of the world.
