We stayed one night in the The Elegant Farmstead on our way back to Windhoek and it is the perfect place if you’re looking for a play where to stay when leaving Etosha and heading to Windhoek. The lodge is located around 25 minutes away from the B1 road by car (can be faster/longer depending on how you drive as... More

I had the fortunate opportunity to spend 3 nights at the Elegant Farmstead. It was amazing. The staff are all very friendly and you are made to feel at home from the minute you check in. The food is amazing and really delicious, I am going to miss the home baked bread. The swimming pool is stunning and I had... More

Having reached the last night of a fantastic trip, we were a little sad to check in to the Elegant Farmstead. It was pouring with rain but we received a very warm, cheerful welcome. Our room was comfortable and charmingly furnished. It was a little odd not having a bathroom door, but caused us no concern. The fruit on the... More

My comments are similar to others. Really pleasant facility with some really thoughtful decorative touches. Food was excellent and the staff really attentive and helpful. We did the well signposted walking trail and the sundowner trip. The tea and cake in the afternoon was good and most welcome. Rooms were spacious and spotless.

The Elegant Farmstead is the sister hotel of The Elegant Guesthouse (Windhoek) but is very different in character. Okahandja is approx. 135 km from Windhoek Airport and is in a beautiful tranquil setting. We stayed on a half-board basis and both the choice and quality of the menu were exceptional. The whole facility is spotlessly clean, with smiling, friendly staff... More

This is a lovely place within 2 hours drive of the airport at Wyndhoek- very friendly owners and staff with great food , nice pool and gardens. Kids will enjoy the farm animals and organised drives/trips are available

What a delightful surprise - the essence of hospitality! It was already late when we left Windhoek, having had a delayed flight, a few issues with the rental car and a fair bit of traffic heading out of town. The last 27kms on the dirt road to the Farmstead were rather bumpy - but we did spot a honey badger!... More

We were greeted with a cool iced tea and given a tour as part of our check in. There is a beautiful lounge area with tea and coffee station for guest use. Outside is a pool, bar, eating area, a huge deck for enjoying a sundowner and a fire pit with seating around it. The food was great with game... More

Wow what a place. So if you've just come off a long flight and you need somewhere nice to stay or if you are on the way home and you want a great place to spend the last night not too far from the airport (1.5 hours and in the direction of the Etosha National park) I can't recommend this... More

I recently stayed at the Elegant Farmstead and had such a lovely time. Katja, Paul and the rest of the team is such an awesome team that really gives you excellent service and Anna Kapeng (hopefully spelt correctly) makes thee best milk tart I've ever tasted! We also went on a sundowner drive with Paul and was amazed by his... More
