Vingerklip Lodge Review
In a dramatic locale in Damaraland's Valley of the Ugab Terraces, this lodge is set against the backdrop of a mighty stone finger pointing toward the sky. Take time while you're here to listen to the silence. The 360-degree views from the Sundowner Terrace are magnificent. The friendly and knowledgeable staff organizes tours to the well-known sights in the vicinity such as the petrified forest, a Himba village, and the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Bungalows cling to the side of a rocky hill and are clean and comfortable, but it's the remarkable views that you'll always remember.
