Comfortable and enjoyable stopover

Ghaub Guest farm is an interesting and comfortable place to stay. There was a very relaxed atmosphere and meals were nice. The local staff were all very friendly, helpful and clearly proud of the place.

The old building and rooms give a nice feel to the farm and the bedroom was well fitted out. Many birds were flying around the grounds which were amazingly green after seeing the rest of the country.

As we only had one night enroute to Bushmanland we didn't partake of the activities,the cave or seeing the rhino. Not much game was seen around the farm.

Overall a delightful and recommended place for a stopover in the region.

A great place to see Rhino

This farm has recently changed hands, and the new owner has introduced more game onto the farm. This was a truly magnificent place to visit, its reminiscent of the old colonial days and really takes you back in time.

The lodges are spacious and very well equipped, and well within walking distance to the hide and water hole. The staff were excellent, and the food fantastic.

Its certainly a place I would return to, its so peaceful and tranquil ,and set in some truly wonderful surroundings. During our stay there were no activities on offer, but I would recommend two nights here.

Ghaub Guest Farm review

We only stayed here because Sabina thought we would otherwise have a very long drive. We were so glad we did, what a really delightfully place, we could have happily stayed 3 nights.

The rooms are large and very tastefully decorated in the old mission school rooms. Everything one could want was thought of the scenery and gardens are beautiful with a super pool and the gardens full of flowers and colourful trees. The manager who has been there 17 years is a real treasure, he was informative cheerful and helpful. The food was delicious and the wine good.

We were bowled over by the whole place. Fascinating history and great birds and walks. really would love to visit again.

Ghaub Guest Farm review

Superb accommodation. Peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. The farm trip we chose to do was good for the 1st half - very informative and interesting. Then the 2nd half was basically an extremely bumpy uncomfortable drive back and of no real interest.

We had 2 evening meals, one of which was excellent and the other was one of the worst meals we have ever had!!!!!!.

Ghaub Guest Farm review

We didn't stay in the farm but camped on one of the three pitches.

The facilities provided were good with the abultion block for each pitch providing two showers and two flush toilets with electricity. Kitchen facilities with concrete and stone table and a braai area. The table provided can really only be used as a work surface as it is too high to sit at. Each pitch is private with good views.

One of the guides at the farm took us down the cave on the farm which is a two and a half hour adventure going down a hundred meters. There was a lot of scrambling and climbing in muddy conditions so you need to be prepared for that. But it was a great experience. Not for the claustrophobic. An excellent base to explore the Otavi area.

Quiet location

Mark went caving; he enjoyed it but it was incredibly hot and there was a shortage of oxygen!

Other than that it was a good place in which to relax. Currently, there is no horse riding so walking is about the only other option. Fine for an overnight stay, but no longer.

Ghaub Guest Farm review

The welcome here was wonderful, despite being the only guests, yet again. The rooms are really huge with a lovely view over the immaculate grounds.

The Manager is great, a real Namibian success story who joined us after dinner for really interesting conversations. Chris McIntyre please note: it is on the opposite side of the road from what you say in the Bradt guide.
