Weltevrede Guest Farm
Throughout Namibia, the modest guest farm has a place next to the five-star luxury giants and Weltevrede is one such establishment. Meaning 'contented' the owners of Weltevrede place an emphasis on personal attention and a relaxed and accommodating style.
The farm is located half way between Solitaire and Sesriem and is surrounded by the elements of a typical Namib Desert landscape - hazy mountains, grass-covered gravel plains, acacia trees and iron-red sand dunes.
Twelve en suite double chalets face the rolling plains of the desert and the rooms are comfortably appointed. The farm has a tented dune camp and a basic campsite for the self-sufficient. Dinner is taken en masse in the lapa - a large, open-sided thatched gazebo typical of these hot climes - and the fare is hearty to say the least.
12 en suite rooms; tented camp; camp site; swimming pool; traditional lapa dining room
Scenic walks; 4x4 self-drive routes; game viewing; bird watching; Sossusvlei and Sesriem day trips; sundowner drives
Like the chalets the swimming pool has a view over the desert and if you fancy a bit of activity you can go on 4WD trails, scenic nature walks, sundowner drives and day trips to Sossusvlei and Sesriem. Springbok, gemsbok, ostriches and other desert-adapted creatures pop up from time to time on the farm so be sure to have your camera ready.
Similar Properties in Sossusvlei
Despite the many excellent private accommodation options around Sossusvlei, the Sesriem Campsite, owned and run by Namibia Wildlife Resorts, draws a steady stream of campers and groups.
Desert Camp, depending on how you chose to tour Namibia is either a luxury no-tent camping option or a first-class self-catering facility. Either way, you'll get a tranquil and secluded setting, a comfortable bed, a glorious shower and a sensational desert sunset. Guaranteed.
Solitaire Country Lodge
Solitaire. In addition to the mystic appeal of a settlement so aptly named, the Solitaire Country Lodge is an excellent stop en route to or from Sossusvlei.
