About Duesternbrook Safari Guest Farm

The oldest guest farm in Namibia, with its spectacular view, lies just 50 km north of Windhoek, on the way to Etosha, Damaraland, Skeleton Coast and the Namib desert. Duesterbrook is a member of the Namibian Hotel Association and registered with the Namibia Tourism Board.

We cater only for the individual traveller. The old colonial buildings (1909) have been carefully renovated and extended to keep the flair of the by-gone times. Complimented by inviting rooms, a tasty cuisine and the personal service is brought to you by a team of individual players.

Adventure excellent cheetah and leopard drives and see about 15 different species of game and rich birdlife on the safari game drive. A early morning special mountain drive with different view points and the possibility to see the rare and endemic Hartmann mountain zebra is offered free if you stay two or more nights. Feel space, clean air and tranquility or enjoy four well marked walking trails or horseback riding. Enjoy a swim or the atmosphere around our big pool.

We run and manage the farm in an environmental friendly way and participate in the Namibian eco award. In 2005 and in 2007 we got three and in 2008 we been awarded with four out five flowers. Except for one or two wilderness Lodges we are the only safari guest farm in Namibia with such a high rating. If your senses like the mix of historical flair, eco management, pure nature and space, conservation of rare and endangered species, adventure, personal service, individual people and a family atmosphere, than you should be our guest.

Number of rooms: six double units and one single. All rooms are individually furnished, partly antique, partly specially made furniture. Limited camping, but what you take in you take out not to create a baboon problem.

We were really looking forward to our stay there but due to a heavy big tree in the road to the lodge we did not get to the lodge. We had to go all the way back to Windhoek and booked in at the Protea Hotel just to get a place to stay and it was twice as expensive. I also paid a deposit and would like to know if I can get that back please.

We booked two nights at Davidsdraai as a family, but only stayed one night!! We understand that it is a no luxury unit, but there is no electricity (on website is says electricity supplied via solar panels), no warm water (even with solar panels), no curtains, and probably their oldest beds and linen. We could not prepare a meal as the braai area is outside and it was raining, no other self catering facilities or electricity to cook with. Can't even make a cup of coffee!!Addition to the curtainless windows are the fact that there is no mosquito netting, thus you can't sleep with the windows...

Was the worst camp we had on our 5 000km trip. No ablutions were we first had to stand. Then overflowing of septic tank with owner swearing in Afrikaans about bad woman campers. We are from South Arica. (obvious "Afrikaans")Sorry will never recommend this place to any body. Establishment Response:Dear Mr Nel,thank you for your time to review my campsite even if you have not been happy. You must have understood something totally wrong. I did not even know you have been around. I was talking to my workers that if ladies do not use the bin but put them in the toilet its clogs the severage system,...

We had such a lovely time at Duesternbrook. The staff is very friendly and helpful. And Johan Vaatz is a real warm host to all his guests.
