Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

This is in Eros Park - a well-to-do neighbourhood backing onto bush-covered hills with a splattering of wildlife and plenty of birds. A city base with a peaceful vibe. It is close to Windhoek’s centre but it's a bit of a stretch to walk it. Think 10 minutes in the car and they can arrange a driver for you. You’ll want to head out for dinner (it’s a B&B). Joe’s Beerhouse is the closest and that’s about a mile. It's a lively pub and restaurant famous for eisbein and large jugs of beer.

There are 7 standard double rooms and a family room - which is two standards connected by a door. All the rooms lead out on to the terrace and the pool so those extra thick curtains will certainly be handy. It's a home away from home and owner run, by one of the sweetest couple's you'll meet, Renette & Koos sure will make you feel welcome and like extended family, you'll definitely want to visit from time to time.

Facilities

Off road parking; lounge and dining area with tea and coffee making facilities; swimming pool; air conditioning / heater; mini bar; flat screen TV; WiFi; international adaptors; laundry services; transfer & shuttle service on request

Activities

You could do a Windoek city tour or a cycling tour to Katutura township.

Horse riding and half day trips to Durstenbrook are another option.

The National Gallery of Namibia’s worth a visit and at the Namibia Craft Centre you’ll find 40 independent shops.

Learn about Namibia’s history at the Independence Memorial Museum - there’s a glass lift on the side of the building which gives you a good view of Windhoek.

San rock paintings are next door at the National Museum of Namibia.

Daan Viljoen Game Reserve is about 15 miles from the city centre - good to explore on foot as there are no dangerous predators. Avoid eating trees though, giraffes go justifiably berserk. That’s a lie. Although probably not tested so bring a packed lunch.

The National Botanic Garden of Namibia is 12 hectares of land pretty much left in its natural state. 75 species of birds find this delightful.

For the more obtuse amongst you how about a trip to the Gibeon meteorites? Captain James Alexander found these space rocks on his travels in 1838. They’d been waiting 600 million years for somebody to notice them.

Or finally, how does space junk sound? Namibia’s Space Ball is a sphere which dropped from space and baffled the local police. Nowhere to put the handcuffs. Anyway, NASA stepped in and admitted it’s a load of old rubbish from an unidentified flying spaceship.
