Part of the attraction of Hohenstein Lodge is its bird life. The lodge, situated at the foot of the Erongo Mountains with its granite boulders near Omaruru, provides a fitting base to do some quality near-endemic birding.
Violet Wood-Hoopoe, Rüppell’s Parrot and Carp’s Tit can be offered. The calls of Herero Chat, Rockrunner and Rosy-faced Lovebird echo around you. A practical birding hide with a bird friendly water spot in place and a wetland area in front of the restaurant has been constructed to maximize the bird watching experience.
Birding at Hohenstein Lodge certainly delivers and memories will stay with you long after you left this birding hotspot.
