About Bethanie Guesthouse

Known as the very first hotel to be built in Namibia, Bethanie Guesthouse is situated at the center of all the tourist attractions in the south, like the breathtaking Fish River Canyon, the rocky shores of Luderitz, and Sossusvlei with its unforgettable sand dunes.

The guest house was originally built before 1880 and is therefore one of the oldest in Namibia. Bethanie is a small town with a rich historical background against the backdrop of beautiful mountains, breathtaking sunsets and starlit skies at night.

We offer fully furnished, en-suite rooms, seven of which are air-conditioned. Meals are enjoyed outside at the lapa restaurant area, with a bar where we serve home-cooked meals and open-fire dishes. There is a superb swimming pool available to guests if they feel the need to cool off. The guest house also has a tea/beer garden with a well-stocked bar and DStv.

Along with the many scenic trips one can make in the area, there are some more activities available such as quad biking, hiking, horse riding, 4x4-ing, and birdwatching.

The location suited us and, with a tarmac road all the way from the main B road it was easy to get to.The hosts were very friendly, the room clean & spacious and the pool area lovely.We had a really great evening meal and breakfast was good, too. I guess the only thing some might not favour is a lack of air-con. It wasn't that hot anyway, despite the heat of the day and ceiling fan was more than sufficient.
