South of Uhlenhorst, on the C15, about 59km from the B1, is a specialist lodge that caters for glider pilots up to world-class level. This is not a school for gliding – it is a place for those who already know how to glide. A number of world records have been achieved at Bitterwasser, and each one has been marked with a king palm. In addition to this, a new palm tree is planted for every flight over 1000km. There’s an avenue of palm trees lining the way to the airfield, where each palm was planted to commemorate a record. Every year, the avenue grows.
Bitterwasser Lodge is the ideal place for those interested in gliding, especially if you can bring your own glider. The fantastic thermals of the Kalahari desert provide the opportunity for not only incredibly fast, but also exceptionally long glider flights. The large 3km diameter Bitterwasser salt pan, provides the runway system and is the perfect airfield to initiate glider flights.
The restaurant team of Bitterwasser Lodge and Flying Centre pride themselves on their Namibian and International cuisine. It has a terrace and is right in the middle of the resort, the perfect meeting place for pilots and guests alike.
