Ghaub Guest Farm review

We really enjoyed our stay at Ghaub. The staff were very friendly and helpful. 90 min drive to Etosha, and walks were excellent.

Kasane to Cape Town Days 7 and 8

We really like Ghaub; it is a simple place where things are done well.

Since our last stay two years ago (we loved it then but it's better now!) buildings have been spruced up, rooms redecorated and quality of bedding improved. Rooms remain large and cool with big bathrooms and excellent showers. We had the 'honeymoon suite' which has the only double bed. Food is good farm cooking (often featuring game meat). Whilst you may not get the same variety at breakfast as at some lodges the quality of the food on offer is superb. Mika is an excellent manager for whom nothing seems too much trouble – he seemed delighted to welcome repeat visitors. He also recommended an Aladdin's cave of a shop in Tsumeb which managed to sell us a gizmo to do the job of the camcorder recharger we'd left at home.

We enjoyed a morning walk on our own and then an evening drive around the farm with Klaus; we didn't see much game but learnt a lot about Ghaub and the farm.

Our one quibble is that, compared to other lodges, accompanied activities are rather expensive

Ghaub Guest Farm review

A very relaxed and friendly place to stay.
The bird hide was equipped with binoculars for all to use.
Food & ambience very good.
Lovely gardens - good bird life.
A bit of luxury after two weeks in the bush.
Would have been happy to stay more than one night.

A nice place to stay en route to Caprivi. We did not take part in any activities....hence no comment.

A long way home

After two weeks of 40+ degree heat, 3500km of driving and stunning wildlife viewing this is a great place to come.

It is much more than just an overnight stop and possibly deserves 2 nights as it is a great place to chill. The staff a very friendly and the rooms and facilities brilliant, plus they have food and wine of the highest standard.

The farm feel is very welcoming and the walking very enjoyable.

Too short

We arrived too late to take an evening trip which was a shame and we had to leave too early in the morning,another night would have been great as it is a lovely place and we enjoyed the farming aspect of it.

Ghaub Guest Farm review

We enjoyed exploring the caves at the farm together with our children (8+9 years) with only torches spending 1,5 hour in the dark passages!

The guide was very friendly and took good care of the children (and parents). Highly recommended for adventures families. There were good walking trails on the farm and a beatifull large garden (park). We got the best South African red wine in Namibia in the nice little restaurent "Rust en Vrede" (rest in peace) - try it.

The waiters were attentive and the manager asked to our well being all the time - hope they get a good salary. The family room was spacious and nice, the pool was perfect (but cold). Spend no less than 2 days here, highly recomended.
