Indigo Self Catering
accommodation in the Kalahari Desert - Namibia
Indigo Self-Catering is a friendly owner-managed establishment situated in the scenic village of Stampriet. They offer value-for-money accommodation in a peaceful and tranquil setting especially for guests who wish to self-cater. Marthinus and Lisbeth are passionate about Namibia and the Kalahari Desert. They are only too eager to share this knowledge with their guests.
The village of Stampriet dates back to 1898 when a trading post was established. Today this small village is well known for exporting vegetables around Namibia, this is made possible by the towns abundance of artesian wells. This abundance of water has also led to Stampriet being a green oasis amongst the surrounding red Kalahari dunes. The town, and Indigo Self Catering, are also strategically located between Windhoek & the Mata Mata entrance to the Kgalagardi Gemsbok Park (the park was previously called the Kalahari Gemsbok Park) and serves as an excellent overnight stop for those visiting, or returning to Namibia from, the park.
Indigo is surrounded by beautiful gardens, and the pool is the ideal place to wash away the heat & dust of travelling on the long hot Namibian roads. Guests are invited to relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings or have a braai (BBQ) in the shaded lapa.
The twin or double en-suite rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, wardrobe, & are fully equipped with microwave oven, bar fridge, cutlery, plates, glasses, mugs, pots and pans. You will need to bring your own food - or purchase it at the reasonably well stocked local supermarket. Each room also has a private garden & braai area.
