About Gessert's Guesthouse

Relax in a quiet family atmosphere at this cosy guest house in the heart of Keetmanshoop, Namibia. Gessert's Guesthouse offers seven comfortably furnished en-suite bedrooms.

All the bedrooms are spacious with remote controlled air-conditioning and TVs. They are lovingly decorated and all lead to the beautiful, shady garden with its sparkling swimming pool as the centre. The hosts, Zelna and Hendrik Knouwds, are proud to offer guests their comprehensive and stylish breakfasts.

There are good restaurants close by as well as a museum in the old church where the illustrated history of Keetmanshoop is on display. Worth a visit is the old Kaiserliche Postamt built in the year 1910, which now houses the Tourist Information. About 13 km northeast of Keetmanshoop, lies the spectacular and much photographed Kokerboom or Quiver Tree Forest on the farm Gariganus. The site has been declared a National Monument.

The Quiver Tree or Kokerboom is indigenous to the hot and dry southern part of Namibia. The plants are succulents and can reach a height of up to 9 m. They have adapted to the extreme environmental conditions by storing water in their trunks. The tree only blossoms for the first time after 20 to 30 years and can reach 300 years of age. The wood is very light and spongy inside, and because the trunk and branches can be easily hollowed out, they were used as quivers by the bushmen who formerly inhabited this area.

              The fridge in the room was not turned on which meant that the cold contents from my car fridge went into a hot one The shower head bracket was broken and I forgot to tell them Otherwise it was a comfortable stay with a hearty breakfast

              Excellent breakfast. Easy access to the centre of town for restaurants. Nice garden for summer evenings.

              Great guesthouse set in a lush green garden. The rooms are well equipped and clean and everything worked. Safe off road parking for two SUV's with trailers. Hendrik, our host was very friendly and helpful and even got up to make us coffee and say goodbye when we left at 05h30 the next morning. Overall a great place to stay.
