Tranquil and Romantic

The only thing that I was not happy about Elegant Farmstead was that we were only there for one night.

The lodge is close enough to Windhoek, yet secluded enough to have a quiet and relaxing time. The main building of the lodge is elegantly decorated and welcoming. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. The wine cellar has a very good selection of wines. The food was excellent!

I wish we could have enjoyed another day or two at the Elegant Farmstead.

Elegant Farmstead review

This was a good first stop after our long flight as it was only a reasonably short journey being just before reaching Okahanja. The road to the Farmstead was pretty rough due to many reconstructions taking place at the moment on the 27.5 Km D2102.

Warm welcome from the manageress, very quiet here, only two other guests. Very nice garden area and pool. Not a lot of wild life seen. Our room was very comfortable and the evening meal was excellent .

Elegant Farmstead review

This was our last night's stay in Namibia and was ideal.

The hospitality was excellent and the staff all very helpful. We didn't take part in any of the activities provided, but we did a couple of self guided walks, one of which had directions provided. Both walks were enjoyable and we saw quite a bit of game. It was a very restful place to stay and finish our trip. For us it was preferable than staying in Windhoek.

The food was excellent and tea and coffee is provided all day in the main reception area. The gardens are very pleasant. With a very large swimming pool.

Relaxed and homely

What a lovely spot - it was just a shame the road there was bad with several corrugations and stones.

Last night at Elegant Farmstead

Elegant Farmstead was great for a stay near enough to Windhoek to make a lunchtime flight without getting up at the crack of dawn. It's a really nice place in its own right too, however. It's a fairly lengthy drive up a bumpy gravel road from the B1, but worth it.

The rooms were well-furnished and set in lovely gardens - but the bathrooms need a bit of upgrading and the shower was rather weak. There's a lovely pool, home-made cakes mid-afternoon, and very good food and wine. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable way to end our holiday after all the travelling.

Elegant Farmstead, a tranquil oasis

An excellent stop off on our way north, just 1.5 hours from Windhoek. This was the ideal place to rest after a long overnight flight from the UK.

We found it really homely, very peaceful and tranquil it was just what we needed. The rooms were comfortable, the food and service was excellent and the farmstead was set in beautiful surroundings.Definitely a place to remember.
We enjoyed a lovely game drive here too, it was wonderful.

Could perhaps benefit from a "buggy" to carry luggage to rooms, there was no help offered on this front!

Elegant Farmstead review

Very helpful indeed particularly as we left a necklace which they went to great lengths to ensure we got it back.

Could fully recommend although the 27.5k road is a bit rough. Enjoyable walk in the area in lovely surroundings.
Food very enjoyable.

Cosy campfire at Elegant

We travelled here from Mushara via Tsumeb and Okahandja where there are craft shops / market to buy souvenirs from but apart from that we didn't find much else to see in the area.

Elegant is a handy location if you are wanting to relax before returning to Windhoek prior to flying home. The rooms are set in a lovely landscaped garden with an outside decking area and a pool. The food was of good quality especially the breakfast. It was great to to sit outside around a fire after dinner and chat to other travellers.
