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

From the moment Katja greeted us with warm hand towels, we knew we were in for an exceptional experience. For the next three days we guested there, we were enveloped in one personal touch after another--meals to order, personal conversations with the staff, tours to order (everything from the farm to local schools and NGO projects, German military grave sites,...

The Elegant farmstead has a lovely pool. It is a great place to relax. The nearby restaurant has good food and a nice wine cellar. The rooms are spacious and clean. The owner is very helpful for his guests. The only disadvantage is that the surroundings are not that spectacular as other venues in Okahandja.

I stayed here one night on a recent trip to Namibia and wished I could have stayed longer. We were very warmly welcomed, given all the information on the rooms, dinner plans, and areas for relaxation. It is an elegant place to relax and rejuvenate and the best part is the food. Delicious dinner in a perfect setting. Next to... More

Close to Windhoek but completely secluded it is the perfect location for tranquil, relaxing break with great food, good wine and excellent service. Just be aware that you still drive quite a distance once you leave the tarred road...for a while we thought we had gotten lost... I had forgotten to mention that I was vegetarian but they were able... More

We spent two nights here at the end of December and, although they were working on a skeleton staff due to the holiday season, there was definitely no lack of service! Sandra met us on arrival with wonderful cold face cloths and we enjoyed a glass of homemade iced tea on checking in, gave us a tour of the property... More
