Igowati Country Hotel
Igowati Country Hotel offers no-frills stopover accommodation in Khorixas, central Damaraland, with the added option of camping and self-catering units.
How many times, after hours driving when your eyelids are sticking shut and your throat is like sandpaper, do you arrive at your overnight stop only to discover another half-hour drive down a dusty, bumpy road to get some magical (expensive) setting you couldn't give two hoots for?
If that sounds familiar, Igowati Country Hotel should be a welcome relief. Situated in the tiny town of Khorixas in Damaraland, central Namibia, this delightfully homegrown hotel offers a convenient overnight stop of the instant gratification kind.
Park right in front of your room motel-style, wash away the dusty fatigue in the swimming pool and rest up in the deep shade of the thatched terrace while your friendly waiter whips up a round of ice cold drinks. Dinner will be ready shortly in the form of a typically Namibian buffet with lots of venison on offer.
Accommodation is in chalets with en suite bathrooms. The decor leaves much to the imagination but you'll be fast asleep in your comfy bed before you've even noticed.
Igowati Hotel is well placed for day trips to the famous Twyfelfontein ancient rock art, the Petrified Forest, Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain. As a stopover, Khorixas is on the scenic - dirt road - route to Western Etosha and Kaokoland from Swakopmund.
Igowati Country Hotel also offers excellent camping sites with lawned sites, electric outlets and running water. And two of the chalets are self-catering.
