Dornhügel Guest Farm
Dornhügel Guest Farm, a place so remote, not even TripAdvisor knows about it, is a delightful taste of true Namibian hospitality on a genuine working farm near Bushmanland en route to the Caprivi in northern Namibia.
Though the farm is just 30 km from the town of Grootfontein, you are deep in the Kalahari here with sandy plains dotted with acacia trees, makalani palms and the great open skies of a vast, uninhabited realm.
Accommodation at this guest farm is in cool and spacious brick chalets with stone tiled floors and large en suite bathrooms. The main living area is an open-sided hall with a bar, dining area and sparkling swimming pool. The grounds are well tended with a soft green lawn all around and shady trees.
Feeling more like a home than a lodge, dinner is in a cozy dining room with a fireplace - Kalahari winter nights can get nippy - and being on a game farm expect a variety of venison on the menu.
Dornhügel farm produces cattle, sheep and horses on 11,000ha of private land and mingling with these domestic animals is an impressive diversity of wildlife including eland - Africa's biggest antelope - as well as giraffe, zebra, oryx, kudu, several small antelope, warthogs, jackals and, if you're very lucky, leopard, cheetah and lynx. The birdlife, as in all of Namibia, is astonishing.
DBB accommodation in brick chalets with en suite bathrooms, mini-bar and ceiling fan; restaurant and bar; lounge; swimming pool and terrace.
Game drives and farm tours in an open Landrover; hiking trails; cycling; donkey cart tours; day trips to local attractions; tennis, table tennis and darts; library (Note: some activities cost extra so please check with us first)
