About the Grootberg Lodge

These links are to information about the lodge Amy was just at. Once I figured out what the actual name of it was, I found a lot of information about it. It is actually called the Grootberg Lodge. Khoadi Hoas or ≠Khoadi //Hoas is the name of the conservancy where it is located at.

I was pleased to find your posts about Amy's experience in Khoadi //Hoas. My wife and I were Fulbright volunteers there in 1997 and helped the conservancy incorporate. Ten years later, it is a joy to see it thriving. We spent a total of 4 years in Namibia
(between 1990-1992 and during 1996-1998)but nothing was as rewarding or life changing as our work with this community. Best wishes, Tim Abbott
