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!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Acquired in 1937, Carl Werner List originally farmed the 12 000 hectare estate and eventually developed this private and intimate world into a household name in Namibia. Today you are invited to enjoy the tranquility of Midgard. Midgard Country Estate offers 46 fully equipped rooms, Carl’s Dining Room & Bar, two swimming pools, a gym and sauna as well as Namibia’s one and only private skittle alley (Kegelbahn). Choose between one of our 35 Standard Rooms, 5 Family Rooms or 5 Luxury Rooms with views overlooking the swimming pools, gardens, courtyard or mountains. Our self-catering units at the trains offer an alternative for all guests who prefer a true “camping experience” at highly affordable rates. The estate is spaciously situated in a sprawling country garden, bordering the Swakop River Valley. At Midgard we invite you to relax and have fun; feel free to soak up the ambiance and simply unwind; or explore the outdoors on our hiking and mountain trails, play bowling, volleyball, tennis, table tennis, pool or outdoor chess or view our vintage car collection. One of the estate’s major attractions is a Hilltop Sundowner Drive, where you can enjoy a stunning 360° view over the Otjihavera Mountains with a refreshing sundowner in hand. We also offer morning or afternoon Game Drives through the separate 2 000 hectare nature reserve, along the Swakop River. Our game park is home to giraffes, blue and black wildebeests, oryx, kudus, hartebeests, eland, smaller antelope species, warthogs and baboons. If luck is on your side, even brown hyena and leopards can be spotted. ... more less
