Activities at Zebra River Lodge

Zebra River Lodge sits in the valley alongside the Zebra River which, although it is dry most of the year, is home to kudu, warthog, zebra, jackals and many more, all of which can be seen from the lodge veranda when they visit the water hole. There are several natural springs within easy reach of the lodge, ideal for a days walking and bird watching.

Trips and tours offered

At the lodge we offer sun downer drives and trips to a spring where you can relax under huge trees next to the crystal clear water. Trips to the famous Sossusvlei with the world's highest sand dunes can be done as self-driver. There is furthermore the possibility to visit a closeby wine farm.

Hiking trips

There are several hiking trails in the mountains surrounding the lodge, varying in length from one hour to all day. Maps and lunch packs are provided and guided walks are available


The Zebra River Lodge is of international interest as it has the oldest fossils of stromatolites and namacalatus (the very first living organisms with a shell) yet discovered anywhere in the world. Leading geologists from all over the world visit us regularly to explore the terrain and document their discoveries


The lodge has a bird list of 118 species including Verreauxs (Black) Eagle, Pygmy Falcon, Auger Buzzard, Herero Chat and Rüppell’s Korhaan. A resident at the lodge can help with identification and guided bird walks can be arranged
