“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I stayed at Midgard with my wife and my son, nearby Windhoek is deffinetly the best place to stay.
The property is beautiful, the gardens huge and green, 2 big swimingpools, a very big and safe playground for children next to the pool allowing the parents to relax at the pool while watching the kids, a bowlling house is available complementary for all the guests, very nice to spend some time, in the night we can watch the stars with a very good stargeyser.
The service is very good and the food above average. I strongly recommend to anyone that likes quietness and relax. The property also offers some game and 4x4 drives are available.

Room Tip: Luxury rooms, very good, very big with a comfortable balcony.

Midgard Country Estate is the most peacefull, quiet location just outside Okahandja, to get a well deserved rest. This lodge gives you value for money as well as style incorporated. The food is just out of the books and with breakfast served under the trees in the garden if you like, it cannot get any better. Your bedtime is splended with white linen to dream of, spoilt every night with a chocolate on your pillow so many things to see and do there.... do yourself a favour and book now please......

Don't let the 60km's of gravel road leading up to Midgard Country Estate make you turn around...arriving at Midgard we were welcomed by an extremely friendly staff member (Julian) in a golf cart with some ice cold wipes to freshen up on a hot summers day in Namibia. At reception a round of refreshing drinks were served and our luggage was taken to our rooms in no time. I've been to a few places in Namibia, but the friendly and kind service at Midgard is in another league! The gardens, pools and rooms are in a mint condition and a family holiday paradise. Air conditioned rooms with private entrances and crisp white linen ensures that you get a wonderful night's rest. The buffet dinner and breakfasts are both very generous and again the service of the staff blew me away. We had a 3 year old that wanted ice cream (not on the buffet) and it was no trouble for the staff to get some for him. We will make this an annual family holiday destination from now on!

had a fantastic fun stay, the staff could not be more attentive and friendly without hassling. My colleagues and I certainly enjoyed the bowling alley! Location can be difficult but worth it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Midgard Country Estate is located only 60 minutes or 85 km northeast of Windhoek and only 70 km from Hosea International Airport in the unspoiled Otjihavero Mountains. An ideal family hide- away, first or last stop for International visitors, intimate meetings, team-building events or weddings.The founder of the Namibian Conglomerate, Ohlthaver & List, Carl List, originally acquired Midgard Country Estate in 1937. His son, Carl Werner List originally farmed the 16,000-hectare Estate and developed this private and intimate world: a household name in Namibia. Today you are invited into this very private world to enjoy the tranquility whilst marveling at the pioneering German Settler spirit, which gave birth to it all. Midgard, a word found in Old Norse, Middle English and High German languages has varying meanings but is popularly thought to be a paradise where the earth rises again, fertile and green, creating a protected world and a safe “empire” for the people.It is an intimate world of its own, which only offers 46 newly decorated and fully equipped rooms, the Main Dining Room & Bar, the Boma, two swimming pools and Pool Bar & BBQ, Gym and Sauna, private Skittling Alley or Kegel Bahn all spaciously situated in a vast sprawling country garden bordering the banks of the Swakop River as it meanders through the Estate on its way to the Atlantic Ocean at Swakopmund. Activities consist of either doing absolutely nothing or discovering Hiking and Mountain Trails, driving along 4x4 tracks, playing Volley Ball, Tennis, Table Tennis or outdoor Chess, Star Gazing, and then viewing the Vintage Car Collection.One of the Estate’s major attractions is a Sundowner Drive or Nature Game Drive to Hilltop for an amazing sunset accompanied by traditional “sundowners”. Morning and afternoon Nature Game Drives through the separate 2,000-hectare Nature Reserve along the Swakop River will open up an experience clearly confirming what life was like on a traditional Namibian Farming and Game Estate in years gone by. Wildlife found here includes Giraffe, Blue and Black Wildebeest, Oryx, Kudu, Hartebeest, Eland, Warthog, Baboons, and smaller antelope species such as the Steenbok. Birding along the riverfront can also be rewarding. ... more   less
