Very nice and welcoming guesthouse. Very friendly and knowledgeable hosts, who know a lot about the animals in the Etosha National park. The food they serve for diner is local and very nice to enjoy the real Africa.

From the moment we were greeted by Elise and their entire family (Rachel, Danie, Danie, Isabel) and staff, we knew we had chosen the perfect setting for us to experience farm life in Namibia and the animal beauty of the near by Atosha National Park.

we were three couples and staid two nights. We all liked it. Took the half day safari to Etoscha Park one day and did not see any 'cats', but our driver was very knowledgeable and I wished we had taken the Day trip.

We were welcomed by the Owner & the daughter In-law....wow...super friendly. The Accommodation was beautiful and with Flowers & chocolate on every cushions was a special touch. The swimming pool is very private and the garden is made with lots of love.

this is a guest farm where you are in touch with the owners and hosts right away, getting a good insight into what life is like in Namibia and on a farm. Nice pool, nice dinner, relaxing stay! And you usually meet interesting other guests on farms like this- we had a great evening!

Vreugde is a great destination for keen birdwatchers. The garden is an oasis in the middle of the dry bush. Visitors include numerous hornbills, bulbuls, paradise flycatcher and sparrowhawk, as well as the resident pair of white faced owls.Young Dani is a keen birder and took me to the local spring where he spots more unusual visitors.

We spent a night at Vreugde on our way up to Etosha, and very glad we did. This is a real hidden gem of a place, a green oasis in an otherwise parched Namibian landscape. We were immediate made to feel very welcome by our host, Rachel, upon our arrival and chatted for quite a while over cold drinks. As... More

It is hard to find the right words to describe the hospitality and friendlyness you discover when you stay at Vreugde. The reception by Elsie, the talks with Dannie , the dinner with Rachel, these are memories which will stay for a long time.

Vreugde is quite simply the best accommodation experience we have ever had in Namibia. Elsie, Dannie, Rachel and Dannie along with their team make you feel like it is home from home. The rooms are clean, well maintained, beautifully decorated and set in fabulous green grass gardens. The thatched papa adds a certain charm to the setting and the pool... More
