“Great place to relax.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2010

On the way to Etosha park I had a short break here, for what this place is absolutely perfect. Rooms are big, comfortably furnished and clean. They are facing a perfectly looked after garden, a perfect place for a rest. The owners seem to know everything about the area as well as close by Etosha park and happily shared their knowledge about anything I could ask for. Very, very friendly people! Food was very good and the location close to the park is excellent. A long walk on the farm with the dogs at sunset was a real highlight. This was the best guest farm I have encountered.

We choose the Vreugde Guest farm after reading the excellent reviews on trip advisor. The farm is around 30km's from the park and the rooms are spacious and really well furnished. However, the real bonus of staying here is the really warm welcome you get from the owners. From the first minute you get to the farm you are made to feel like friends rather than just guests. The food is tasty and plentiful. The owners also provides a great transport and guide service into the safari park. We saw loads of animals that we would never have seen without our expert guide from the farm. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the place to anyone visiting Etosha.

This truly is an oasis. Very nice and clean rooms, with fresh towels. Danie and Elsie were great hosts and made a excellent dinner. Comes highly recommended.

Pristine rooms, lovely guarden, ever so friendly hosts Daan and Elsie, excellent staff, delicious food. Would have loved to stay longer! A brilliant base to discover the beauty of Etosha NP.

We loved the Vreugde Guest Farm from the minute we got there. It’s intimate, family-run, with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Not only did our spacious room look cute on the outside, the interior did not disappoint either: it was fresh, comfortable, and spotlessly clean with a large, well-appointed bathroom ensuite. Our charming hosts, Elsie and Danie, met us with a cool drink and warm welcome. A delicious dinner was served in the cosy dining room where the conversation flows freely. The open fire in the garden invites guests to sit round and swap stories of Etosha until sleep beckons. It was a delightful stay and our only regret is that it was such a short one. We will definitely return if we travel to this part of Namibia again.
