About Okiep Country Hotel

Okiep Country Hotel is a convenient stopover or holiday base for tourists, nature lovers, businessmen, and travellers. Located 100 km from the Namibian border on the N7 in the heart of Namaqualand, the hotel is the ideal stopover between Cape Town and Windhoek.

Malcolm and his friendly staff offer you traditional country hospitality in a modern and elegant setting in the historic town of Okiep, once the site of the richest copper mine in the world. Tours to the surrounding areas are also available on request. All rooms are en-suite, with air-conditioning and DStv.

Okiep is the oldest mining town in South Africa, where copper was first discovered and mined in 1855. A railway line from Okiep to Port Nolloth was built in 1866 for the shipping of copper, and because there was not enough water for the steam engines, the Namaqualand Mule Train was pulled by mules until 1890. In 1918 the Okiep copper mines ceased operating and the place almost became a ghost town. In springtime, Okiep is - like the whole of Namaqualand - very rich in blossoming wild flowers.

                  We were made to feel welcome from arrival to departure. Our room was comfortable and clean and our vehicle parked safe and secure almost outside our door. Dining was as enjoyable - the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate my meal preferences. The food was well prepared and tasty. We will definitely stay here again. A well run hotel in a very small town!

                   This hotel is very familiar, some minutes away from the busy city of Springbok, an oasis.Very clean, restaurant is really excellent.

                  We were 4 adults and had room 20, the room was clean but there is only one bathroom combined with a toilet. It would have been nice to have at least a separate bathroom and a separate toilet. The apartment isn't sufficient for 4 adults. The staff was very nice and the food was good.
