Dornhugel Guest Farm


In the North of Namibia, en route to the untouched Bushman country and the Caprivi region, and only three hours away from the Etosha pan lies our guest farm Dornhügel. We offer you a unique combination of a guest farm with a homely atmosphere, stylish ambience and rustic farm life.



Our eight spacious and newly renovated guestrooms are all individually decorated and surround the lush green courtyard – our Oasis in the middle of the farm.


All rooms are equipped with mosquito nets so that you can choose to enjoy the African night air seeping in through the windows or you can escape the heat and have a restful sleep by making use of the air conditioners that we have installed in each room.

Each room has WLAN (Wifi) reception, Mini-Bar and an en-suite bathroom with a shower and a separate toilet.


Each room has an animal name that is indigenous to the area – Suricate; Kudu; Guinea Fowl; Gecko and Zebra look toward the bush. Porcupine and Giraffe room has a view of the garden and fruit-trees growing in the courtyard.


Kudu room can be converted into a family unit with either one or two extra beds for children sharing with parents.  


Suricate room can be converted to a family unit but, is also adapted to facilitate a physically challenged guest in a wheelchair. 


Gecko room is close to the swimming pool and restaurant, ideal for elderly guests who wish to be close to the main area. 


Oryx suite, located a short distance outside the courtyard. It is a double story unit with the best view of the farm from the upper level room. The two twin rooms and large sharing bathroom is ideal for families with older children or friends travelling together.
