The overall package here was just great. Great hospitality from the whole team - the personal touch was around all the time. Excellent food (best Game meat we had in Namibia) perfect breakfast. Roughly 1 hour from Sossusvlei entrance makes this a great place to stay and enjoy. Will defintely go back when back in Namibia for our next trip!!

32,000 hectares comprised of sweeping desert landscapes and formidable jagged mountains is not the only thing that makes this German guestfarm special. The farm dates back to the 1800's ,mainly used as a cattle ranch, although ecotourism is now the basis of activities for the family who have lived here for three decades due to frequent droughts and water shortages....

A very special place to stay when you are on the Namib area. Incredible house, is like a museum of the colonial times. From here you can visit the Namib desert , Sossusvlei, etc. And don't forget to take a ride with the farm owners in the farm. Orix, Zebras and much more to see !

Our hosts, Uwe and Kathrin were most...

We recently spent one night at Ababis and really enjoyed our stay. Everything was beautiful, rooms were clean and comfortable and both dinner and breakfast were delicious. We highlly recommend a stay here, however it did take us about 11/2- 2 hours to reach Soussusvlei from Ababis.

Katrin and Uwe made us feel very welcome; they were always at the breakfast, coffee and dinner table to chat with us. They were also very helpful in planning our daytime activities. A nice hike on the farmground is the Zipfelberg tour - we...
