Safari Guest Farm

Dear guests,
In Germany, Namibia has been further downgraded. It’s no longer a high-incidence area.

A valid vaccination certificate is required for entry. Further information on the entry of unvaccinated five to eleven year old children from the mentioned case groups can be obtained from the Embassy of Namibia.
All other arrivals must present a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours issued by a certified laboratory in the country of departure upon entry. If a PCR test is presented that is older than 72 hours at the time of entry, non-Namibian nationals will be refused entry without exception.
The so-called Trusted Travel System applies in Namibia. Travelers who require a negative PCR test certificate in digital form for entry must upload it to the African Union Trusted Travel Initiative website or the Global Haven Platform for verification. Trusted Travel (TT) aims to improve the checking of corona test results and make it easier for travelers to enter Namibia. To do this, travelers must visit a laboratory authorized by TT for a PCR test. Travelers with results from non-listed labs must upload their test result to the Global Haven System website for review.

First Guest
Farm in Namibia

Düsternbrook is the first guest farm in Namibia, only 45 min from Windhoek (new highway A1 direction Etosha, exit D1499/Okapuka). Our guest farm is perfect for your first or last days in Namibia. On our traditional family owned safari and guest farm (since 1962) overnight and day visitors are welcomed alike. We are open all day and the whole year around.

Historical farm house

The historical old guest farm in Namibia, was built in colonial style and out of natural stone, is nestled at the foot of the Khomas Highland Mountains and the surrounding African savannah. Before 1908 the area was called ”Otjiho- rongo“ (the place of the kudu). The ranch was situated on the old ox wagon road which formed the main supply route from the coast (Walfish bay) to the inland, called Bay road.

Private wildlife reserve

Our main attractions are the unique Leopard and Cheetah Drives ”Cats Unlimited“ in a spectacular setting. Furthermore you can enjoy a light lunch, a game drive, a scenic mountain drive in the morning, horse riding with game viewing and also different well-signed hiking trails.

On our guest farm we have an abundant diversity of more than 15 wildlife species, such as giraffe, mountain- and plain zebra, oryx, kudu, the rare sable antilope, cape eland, waterbuck, baboon, steenbok, cheetah, leopard and even Hippo.
