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 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 hiking, 4x4-ing, and birdwatching.

          We were made so welcome, almost as part of the family. The menu for supper was limited, but what great food it was! The staff were friendly, professional & accommodating. We appreciated the fresh towels supplied when we enjoyed an evening swim in the clean and well maintained pool area. Absolute awesome people that made our visit a great & memorable experience. The only negative: the air conditioning in the rooms could do with an upgrade, it gets quite hot in that part of town.
