Meet The Animals

 The Meerkat Family 

Our meerkats originally came from N/a'an ku se's wildlife sanctuary. Due to conflicts with other meerkats they needed a new home. Guests always enjoy watching the family rummaging around the farm looking for food or basking in front of the fire on cold mornings!


Bokkie the Sprinbok was rescued by Simone when she was found abandoned when only months old.

She now spends her time walking around the Farm greeting guests.


Max the Oryx was also rescued by Simone when he was young. He has had his horns removed for people's safety.

He is very friendly and often approaches people hoping to get his chin scratched.


Sammy is an African Grey parrot and can be found at reception. The first voice guests often hear as they arrive is Sammy saying 'Hello'.  Sammy is hugely amusing with his vast vocabulary and when guests go to bed they will often here Sammy say 'lekker slaap' which is Afrikaans for 'sleep well'.

The farm is also home to peacocks, guinea fowl and two friendly cats. They also have a 'pets corner' with rabbits, chickens, ducks and guinea pigs.

Unique in Africa

Etosha National Park is unique in Africa. The park’s main characteristic is a salt pan so large it can be seen from space. Yet there is abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes, giving you almost guaranteed game sightings. At the same time Etosha National Park is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa.

The park is malaria free, accessible in a regular sedan car and the rest camps provide a range of accommodation as well as restaurants, viewing decks, shops and petrol stations. Luxurious camps in Etosha’s remote areas have now added top end accommodation to the park’s offerings.

 Landscape and Vegetation

Namibia is a very diverse country with an array of habitats and vegetation. It is also one of the few countries where animals still roam freely mostly unrestricted by human influence. The country has a great mix of desert, semi- desert and savannahs. As you travel further north in Namibia towards Etosha National Park, you will find a place that offers visitors a complete contrast of wide open grasslands, a massive pan that covers 4731km² and large camel thorn trees mixed with Mopani trees. This diverse vegetation accounts for the abundance of wildlife that thrives in the park.


The various accommodation options in Etosha National Park are well equipped with restaurants, shops, curios, swimming pools and petrol stations. The three main camps (Okaukuejo, Halali and Namutoni) offer various types of accommodation from camping to chalets overlooking floodlit waterholes. Situated deeper in the park are the more exclusive camps (Dolomite and Onkoshi) that provide a safari experience for discerning travelers.

About the Park
During winter the Etosha Pan is bone dry. This endless white expanse is an unlikely venue for a wildlife sanctuary. The park is a wasteland of white dust which comes from the clay in the pan. Bushes along the road turn white as vehicles throw up dust and visitors who leave the park usually have a dusty aura around them! This is also the time when most of the visitors come to the park as the climate is mild and the wildlife concentrates itself at the waterholes.  Yet the surrounding areas overflow with springbok and zebra.

The abundance of game in Etosha National Park is somewhat unexpected, showcasing some of the most common and rarest wildlife species. The areas with thicker vegetation are home to elephant (some of the largest in Africa due to the vitamins and nutrients found in the ground).

Many keen photographers visit the park looking to enhance their skills and photo- library.  In winter, the waterholes offer a unique opportunity to sit and wait for your subjects to come to you. The waterholes that surround the camps ensure that you are never left without something to photograph.

Ten Extreme Ways to Experience Namibia

The landscape is Namibia's defining natural asset.People use all sorts of words to describe it: vast, endless, magnificent, unimaginable, among others. There simply is no frame of reference, nothing that comes close to seeing the sunset at Sossusvlei, spending the day playing at Swakopmund or visiting the Himba in Damaraland. You have to experience it yourself.


Wide-variety of walks, overnight hiking trails and guided wilderness trails are available for those looking to see the sights on foot.


Together with Chile and Hawaii, Namibia is considered to be one of the top three destinations for stargazing in the world. With its generally cloudless night sky, especially in the dry winter months, minimal contamination by artificial light and air pollution, and excellent view of the southern constellations, Namibia has superb stargazing conditions.

The Khomas Hochland/Gamsberg area west of Windhoek has the third-clearest, least light-polluted sky in the world.


Better known as four-wheeling in some parts, quadbiking has become one of the more popular activities in Namibia, especially around Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. This is one of the best ways to access parts of the sand dunes that even 4x4's can't reach.


Ballooning is like a magic carpet ride. While you fly, you do not feel any turbulence as you are travelling at the current wind speed. The tranquility of your flight will give you plenty photographic opportunities and unsurpassed views.


With the fresh southwesterly winds and a nice, soft place to land, the dunes around Swakopmund represent one of the great paragliding training facilities in the world.


From meeting with pelicans to feeding seals, all can be seen while comfortably relaxing on a Catamaran while enjoying a glass of champagne and snacks. This is how to experience Walvis Bay in luxury, style and comfort.

Canoeing, Kayaking & Rafting

The country boasts plenty of reservoirs and rivers many kayaking options are offered at the coast in Walvis Bay where one can explore the lagoon and the popular birdlife. Canoeing is also offered on the Kunene and Okavango rivers as an additional activity from the lodges located next to these rivers. The Kunene experience  has plenty of sightseeing, cultural and wildlife surprises. Rafting on the Orange River, otherwise known as the Gariep River on the southern border of Namibia


As the name implies, windsurfing necessitates blustery wind conditions, of which the Namibian coast is happy to deliver. Both Walvis Bay and Luderitz are considered two renowned spots for the sport, which combine elements of sailing with surfing and a bit of creative freestyling.


Part flying attached to a kite, part traditional surfing, Kite surfing is one of the most extreme sports on the water.

Today fishing is still great fun and more and more fishermen flock to Henties Bay to partake in this popular sport.
