Hohewarte Lodge

Windhoek International Airport

The reasonably close location to Windhoek (45kms) and Hosea Kutako International Airport (30kms) makes Hohewarte an ideal first or last night stopover to Namibia. Relax and unwind in a landscape dominated by bush savannah, dry rivers, rolling hills and the picturesque Bismark Mountain, all set in the beautiful Namantanga Conservancy. Expect a high standard of personal attention in this award winning guest farm. The closest translation to 'Hohewarte' is a 'point high up with a view'.

The main building is steeped in history, with 100 years of tradition. This charismatic and charming rustic house was once a colonial police station and post office. Guests spend can spend their spare time lounging by the pool to soak up the sun, or enjoy an unforgettable Namibian sunset from the 'sundowner spot' that overlooks the farm.

Hohewarte Guestfarm recently received the Silver Award of Excellence 2009, from the Hospitality Association of Namibia. They promise to 'spoil you with genuine Namibian hospitality' and to 'tickle your taste buds' with a variety of game dishes, including oryx, springbok and hartebeest from the farm, all complemented by a fine selection of South African wines. All of the meals are set and prepared in the main kitchen and served in the family dining area.

Accommodation is in:

  • Guest Rooms: There are 4 comfortable guest rooms with tea/coffee station located in the main building. Some of the rooms have en-suite facilities, whilst others share a separate bathroom. Gauze netting is fitted to the windows. Hohewarte is a 'base cool' location and there is no requirement for air-conditioning, fans or mosquito nets. An in-room safe is standard. Splendid views of the Olifants River can be enjoyed from your private verandah.
  • Bungalows: There are 2 bungalows set close to the farm's pool. The facilities are similar to the Guest Rooms.

Apart from cattle farming, a wide variety of local Namibian game such as oryx, kudu, zebra, hartebeest, steenbok, cheetah and leopard are around. Ornithologists can spot the 'usual suspects' at Hohewarte.

An unusual feature at Hohewarte Guestfarm is a car storage facility. They offer 'out of Namibia' travellers the opportunity for safe parking in one of their outbuildings for an extended period of time. Your vehicle will be sheltered from the sun, wind and rain in buildings spacious enough to accommodate 23 (twenty-three) 4x4 vehicles, including roof carriers and roof tents. There is also a sedan carport. The service extends to a car wash, tyre pressure checks and battery charging to coincide with your return and collection. An extensive maintenance service including custom-built or spare parts, and overall servicing can be arranged.

Visible to the naked eye are constellations such as Orion and the Seven Sisters (Pleiades), which means 'dove' in English. The biggest and brightest stars in this cluster are blue-white and some 5 times larger than the Sun .
