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.

Elegant Farmstead review

Arrived late from Etosha and left early for the airport, so we only spent a limited amount of time at the Farmstead.

The staff, grounds and food were great, but the rooms are a little outdated and the road to the Farmstead is a little rugged ... We passed 3 cars with flats, which is a bit of a worry on the way to airport! Would definitely recommend it for an overnight stay on the way to Etosha

A very pleasant surprise

We were met by a charming young woman already out on the parking area.

A welcoming place, we were shown around immediately on arrival.

The room was really great but not too spacious. The bed had mosquito net. The bathroom very good!

And on top of everything a gorgeous staff. They all made our short visit very comfortable. Please remember to tip well if you are as pleased as we were. Food better than excellent.

Elegant Farmstead review

This was our last lodge and is mainly used as a last stopover or the first! What a pleasant surprise! It is very well run and has a lovely modern feel to it, without losing the charm of the old farmstead. It was not busy when we were there but we received excellent service and even got to meet the owner who was just dashing back to Windhoek and his other lodge there.

The pool area was lovely and we enjoyed a pleasant drink at the bar in the evening with some locals who had popped in for a beer or two! Dinner was served on the wooden deck which was a lovely idea but a bit cool for us and rather dark but the food more than made up for dark and chill of the night. The stars that night were magnificent and a joy to look at!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and congrsatulate the owners on a very nice lodge.

Elegant Farmstead review

At last we had other people to talk to at dinner. Everything here was very good and it made for an easy drive the final day to the airport.
