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.

It's all about gifts in this corner of northern Namibia. First the biggest meteorite in the world lands 80,000 years ago: 60 tonnes of nickel iron named Hoba which means... ‘gift’. Thanks very much. Then this lodge. A 10, 000-hectare haven originally given as a present. Wow. Thanks very much indeed. The lucky recipients? The French du Preez family. Who gave them that? The South African government. When? 1945. Why? For outstanding merit during the war. Woah.

A variety of accommodation options - chalets, family units, a private luxury villa and a guest house - all with air conditioning, WiFi and DSTV and your own terrace with a view of the waterhole or swimming pool.

The Private Villa is 500m from the main lodge. It can accommodate up to ten people in comfort and you have the option to have your own private chef. Private swimming pool.

The high-vaulted Guest House, with its private swimming pool, can accommodate a family or group of 8 to 10 people. There is also a separate extra room for your guide/driver.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities

* The Private Villa has the option to have your own private chef and has a private swimming pool.

* The high-vaulted Guest House has a private swimming pool and a separate extra room for your guide/driver.


The swimming pool is right there and you can watch animals and birds at the waterhole.

The lodge can help you arrange to go horse riding, mountain biking, clay-pigeon shooting and archery. They can even sort out plane tours. And there’s access to a flood lit tennis court as well as table tennis.

Join a guided game drive and look out for kudu, oryx, ostrich, eland and zebra. You may get lucky and come across leopard and cheetah. More than 20 different game species live on the farm. You can go on game drives to other waterholes too and there’s a nearby natural fountain which attracts game and birds.

Or head to Etosha National Park. The eastern gate is a 1 hour 30 minutes drive.

The famous sink hole lakes aren’t far either - Guinas and Otjikoto. A pioneering scuba diving film was made here in the 1970s and of course don’t miss the Hoba meteorite which lies between Tsumeb and Grootfontein.
