Positives: DO go on the Cats Unlimited tour - to see the cheetahs and leopard up close! DO go on an afternoon game drive. DO either walk or drive to the hippo chalet area where you can watch hippos relaxing in the water. For those staying over, DO go on the 6am morning game drive for great views! Other positives:...

The farm house has a spectacular view overlooking a dry river bed. The original building is a beautiful colonial house and the rooms are decorated with taste. You also get the chance to see leopard and cheetahs that are kept in spacious enclosures close to the farm. there are mostly German and Dutch guests

We spent our last night in Namibia in the Hippo chalet #2. We didn’t want to camp on our last night but didn’t want to stay in a hotel in Windhoek, so decided on the Dusternbrook guest farm (about 50 km away). The hippo chalet seems like a good compromise. We actually booked chalet #1 but were given a choice... More
