Düsternbrook Safari Guestfarm

Düsternbrook is the first guest farm in Namibia, located just north of Windhoek. Our guest farm is perfect for your first or last days in Namibia. We have 32 beds in total, subdivided in different price categories such as a suite, rooms, chalets and safari tents. Besides our rooms we offer various camping spots and activities like game drives and horse riding, also for day visitors.
Our guest farm is located on a mountain with a breath taking view overlooking a dry wide riverbed. The historical old farm house is built out of natural stone, in colonial style.
On our safari farm we have an abundant diversity of wildlife, such as giraffe, oryx, steenbok, cape eland, kudu, waterbok, zebra, baboon, cheetah, leopard and wildebeast. We offer special drives to see our cheetahs and leopards which live on our farm.
Very exiciting are the hippos which live around our dam. Stay at one of the chalets and connect with these animals from your own veranda.

Katrin luxury suite

The suite has a beautiful terrace overlooking the riverbed, comfortable seating with a fireplace indoor and is tasteful decorated. There is a small kitchenette and spacious walk-in shower.

Felsenhaus

Felsenhaus is our guesthouse with a great view overlooking the riverbed. This guesthouse holds our 2 best rooms, which both have a en-suite bathroom. The rooms have a terrace on the opposite side, so you will be ensured of plenty of privacy. The rooms have limited air-conditioning. It is limited to certain fixed hours which is not manually adjustable (because of our limited power usage).

Camping

For campers we offer two different campsites. The bush campsite is fenced but it has 3 light points and 3 plugs 24/7 (no noise). The area is sandy but a lot of shade palms and other trees. Our pioneer camping places are situated along the riverbed and stand further apart. There are sanitation blocks for all campers.

Bush camping

For campers we offer two different campsites. The bush campsite is fenced but it has 3 light points and 3 plugs 24/7 (no noise). There are tables and moveable as well as fixed braai areas. The area is sandy but a lot of shade palms and other trees. Outside the fenced is the sanitation block (toilet and showers) seperate for woman and men. On the fenced campsite you have 24-hr 220 V electricity and warm water. (No noisy generator at night).

Pioneer camping

We also have a campsite along the river bed with a beautiful view into the surrounding nature. The sites are further apart from each other, about 50 to 60 m, and have to use the same sanitation unit. The sites furthest away have a own "bush" shower and toilet. There is no electricity or any light points.
Please note: As we don't want to create a baboon problem we kindly ask you to take out anything you bring into the campsite to your next (city)stop, including your garbage. We have never had a baboon problem and we ask you to keep it that way. Thank you for your cooperation.
