OMARURU SAFARI AREA NAMIBIA
This wonderful game farm has been owned by the same family since 1978, it lies in the central Highlands of Namibia and is situated about 190 kms northwest of Namibia’s capital city Windhoek in the district of Omaruru in one of the country’s most game and species-rich areas. We pick up our guests on arrival at Windhoek Airport in a luxury SUV or Combi, from there it is a 3 hour drive to the farm.
The guesthouses are situated directly near the farmhouse, the 5 clients rooms each accommodating 2 persons are equipped with own shower and toilet; daily room-service and a laundry service is included in the daily rate. The main house is also equipped with telephone and an internet connection/ WIFI.
On hotter days, a dip in the pool may help to refresh you or you may prefer to relax under the shade of trees with a glass of wine – in any case, the richly planted acreage and a citrus fruits plantation provide for a special atmosphere.
We meet for breakfast and meals in the farmhouse. Breakfast is continental style and our main meals are various wild game recipes, complimented with vegetables and fruit. Of course, this is also the best time to plan the next day or relax after a days hunting. We use this time to get to know you better, your needs and wishes, in a friendly and uncomplicated atmosphere.
Our experienced German and English speaking guides and drivers along with our off-road vehicles are always available to help plan your hunt. We also have contacts with renowned car rental agencies in case you wish to rent a car for trips outside the ranch.
Medical care, pharmacies, banks and shopping opportunities are all at hand, either in Omaruru or Okahandja an hour’s drive from camp.
