Lovely place near Etosha ruled by a friendly family. It felt like home being there. Also dinner was most délicious and we were given many good tips for our self drive safari. Next time we will stay more days because we loved it so.

The owners of the lodge, the Brand family, make you feel of being part of their family. We never stayed in a place with so much intimacy. Apart from this everything is well at this place: small, quite, good food, good service, everything is well maintained, nice plants and close to Etosha. Vreugde is the best place to stay if... More

We enjoyed the rooms, which were covered by a straw roof and had good beds, where we could sleep very well. The food was great - and... More

Stayed at Vreugde already several times and it is still stimply the best real Guest Farm in Namibia. More than friendly hosts, great food, spotlessly clean rooms, familiy-like atmosphere and friendly staff. The distance only 25 minutes from Etosha makes it a great spot to do daytrips into the Park.

Only half an hour from Etosha's Andersson Gate, this is a well-established, family run guest farm appealing to those looking for a personal accommodation experience. Rooms are rustic but fully equipped and very clean with nice bed and bathroom linens. We were welcomed and hosted by Rachel, which added a lot to our overall enjoyment. Food was simple home-cooked.
