Self Catering Accommodation

Self Catering Establishments around Namibia

Namibia has a wide variety of accommodation choices ranging from upmarket hotels through to backpacker lodges. Self Catering establishments are fairly common in the larger towns such as Swakopmund, Walvis Bay, Luderitz and Windhoek but much scarcer in rural areas.

We have tried to identify several good self catering options in various locations around Namibia - many of the establishments listed here offer both self catering & non-catering rooms so if you are looking for the self catering option please make this clear when booking.
