About Kai-Oms Backpackers

Formerly known as Outjo Backpackers, we changed the name to Kai-Oms, which is a word used by the Damara people and means big house. We have carefully renovated and redecorated all the buildings and are especially proud of our communal kitchen.

Kai-Oms Backpackers offers self-catering units, Family Rooms, Dormitories and Campsites with braai facilities. We are situated in the small town of Outjo which is known to many as the gateway to Etosha Pan and, of course, the world famous Etosha National Park.

Deon and Jaenny van Zyl welcome you to come and relax, enjoy the African hospitality, and taste the traditional Namibian cooking.

We, a family with 4 children, mostly teenagers stayed 2 nights at Kai-Oms using it as a base for a day trip to Etosha. It was great value for money, very clean, friendly staff and a great experience for all.Martin(14) made friends with Francius and we managed to see 40 elephants in Etosha plus all the other usual ones even a rhino in the distance.Thanks for having us!

We were the only customers for that night, so it was very silent. It was very silent and small place to stay in terms of value for money. The dogs of the owners were very cute and the kitchen was very handy for cooking the meals.

Beautiful clean rooms, nice surroundings, especially the birds, dogs and squirrels in pretty garden and great service. Enjoyed chatting with very friendly and helpful owners. They even called for a dr and pharmacist after hours for one of our guests. Would definitely recommend to friends and visit again next year.
