Beautiful grounds at Gaub

Very comfortable accommodation, set in lovely grounds with a nice pool.

The rooms are big and airy and the veranda outside was an ideal place to sit, relax and watch the plentiful birdlife.

Warm feeling at Ghaub Guest Farm

We felt really welcome by all staff after our exhausting drive from Windhoek to Ghaub to arrive in time before sunset.
The warm welcome at the farm made it extra special.

As we arrived late and only were there for one night we could not enjoy any activities or facilities like the swimming pool.

Ghaub Guest Farm review

A very relaxing place in a great location. It had originally been a mission station and evidence of some of the history is still present. The rooms are in separate buildings and date from this time with very high ceilings.

Previous reviews had mentioned a helpful manager, but the ownership changed around 18 months ago and the Farm is now part of a larger organisation and this may be impacting the service a bit. We received a very brief greeting and no information about activities etc.

The local staff all tried very hard, especially in the restaurant but organisation was lacking. The food in the restaurant is good but there is a lot of it and it can be quite heavy. I don't think many people managed to finish what they were given!

We found a brochure in the office so realised there were Rhino drives and mentioned booking one the next morning. However had we not looked for it I don't think anything would have been mentioned. The guide was quite inexperienced but we saw Rhino and a number of other animals.

Overall our stay was fine and it is a nice place to relax

Beautiful location

A very friendly welcome. I've forgotten the name of the manager, but a lovely man.

We liked the option of Namibian food at breakfast.

Unfortunately it rained heavily during our one night stay so we were unable to walk the bush trails that we had been looking forward to.

A truly relaxing environment.

I am a great fan of Ghaub Guest Farm, its one of the very few places we have stayed at on two separate occasions. To me it offers a very relaxed and welcoming environment, with excellent large rooms.

The grounds surrounding the farm are lush with palm trees, and the whole atmosphere offers a very nostalgic view of Africa.

We were lucky to see the new baby Rhino with her mother from the viewing Hide. The restaurant and food were as expected superb.

NB. the evenings in May get very cold.

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.
