About Conductors Inn
Welcome to Conductors Inn.
We were never satisfied to merely establish the usual roomed accommodation found throughout Namibia, and therefore created something very unique and rare. Rail travel in Namibia ceased to exist in the late 70's, and we, therefore, acquired two disused rail carriages, which we converted into 8 luxury double bed sleeping coaches. We are sure that if you listen hard enough, you may still hear the familiar rail sounds of a by-gone era.
Near to the town are two large and famous sinkhole lakes, Lake Otjikoto and Lake Guinas. Guinas, at about 500 m in diameter, is somewhat larger in area than Otjikoto. The depths of the lakes are unknown, because towards the bottom both lakes disappear into lateral cave systems, so it is not possible to use a weight to sound them. Otjikoto, which has poor visibility, is at least 60m deep. The water in Guinas is completely clear and well over 100 m deep. Divers who have performed bounce-dives in Guinas to 80 m have reported that there was nothing but powdery-blue water below them. Guinas has been in existence for so long that a unique species of fish, Tilapia guinasana, has evolved in its waters.
