Eningu Clayhouse Lodge
Eningu Clayhouse Lodge
Adobe Architecture in the Kalahari Desert
Eningu Clayhouse Lodge is an ideal destination to start and end your trip. Eningu is a little over an hour’s drive southeast 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. The walls are almost Mexican from the outside, with a red adobe finish and soft, curving lines topped by thatched roofs. Muted and coloured cushions and fabrics outdo the moulded stone beds and seats. On the floor are hand-painted porcupines, and outside each room, you will find a few sculptures befitting a lodge that was started years ago by two artists.
Our family room can sleep up to 5 people (2 adults and three 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 a 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 fireplace for those chilly winter nights.
Meals can be served on the open veranda in summer or inside the heated restaurant on winter nights. Our award-winning chef will pamper you with a great choice of light, nutritious, creative meals.
