Eningu Clayhouse Lodge

Eningu Clayhouse Lodge is an ideal destination to both start and end your trip. Eningu is a little over an hour’s drive south-east of Windhoek’s main international airport – Hosea Kutako International Airport. Eningu was built from 120,000 handmade clay bricks, which blend into the surrounding red sand of the Kalahari Desert.

Eningu Clayhouse Lodge accommodates nine spacious rooms. From the outside the walls are almost Mexican in appearance, with a red adobe finish and soft, curving lines topped by thatched roofs. Inside are moulded stone bed and seats topped by muted and coloured cushions and fabrics. On the floor are hand-painted porcupines and outside each room you will find a few sculptures, befitting for a lodge that was started years ago by two artists.

We have a family room that can sleep up to 5 people (2 adults and 3 children). It’s decorated in almost the same style as the other rooms, but more spacious and situated at the end of the line of rooms. It even has its own little garden area with hammocks.

There is a choice of relaxing spots and dining. In the lodge’s main building, there we have a small lounge. Here the walls are decorated with many paintings and at the end a wine-rack with a wide range of wines suiting your taste buds. There’s also a fire place for those chilly winter nights.

Meals can be served on the open veranda in summer or inside the heated restaurant in winter nights. Our award winning chef will pamper you with a great choice of light, nutritious and creative meals.
