Omatozu Game Farm
Accommodation near Okahandja - Namibia
Omatozu Game Farm is located 100km north of Namibia's capital city Windhoek, and just 25km from the town of Okahandja. This central location means it is en-route to Waterberg Plateau and Namibia's main tourist attraction, Etosha National Park. This guest farm has easy access making it an ideal stop-over for self-drive tourists at the beginning or end of a Namibian holiday.
The location and relaxed atmosphere at Omatozu make it an idyllic place for those wanting to escape the rigours of modern life. The hosts Carla & Arthur are both very knowledgeable with regard to Namibian wildlife. Carla was one of the first woman trophy hunters in the country while Arthur is a retired vet who specialised in treating large game and was involved in cheetah research.
The entertainment area consists of a wooden deck with a bar, dining room and lounge. The braai area affords views of the farm dam with the opportunity to experience the incredible Namibian night sky around a camp fire. The cosy living room has an open fireplace, a popular winter night-time venue. Other facilities include a laundry service while dinner, breakfast and braai-packs are available on request.
Across the lawn from the main camp and nestled amongst thorn trees are 3 x luxury walk-in tents: En-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, electricity, bedside lights, plugs, linen and towels are standard.
Grazing land on the Omatozu Farm is gradually being reclaimed from alien invader bush. Wood is harvested to produce charcoal, a process that not only rehabilitates farmland but creates job opportunities and an export commodity.
Kudu, gemsbok, springbuck, impala, hartebeest, eland, zebra, giraffe, brown hyena, waterbuck and ostrich during the day and porcupine, ant-bear and honey badger at night. Cheetah and leopard frequent the farm, but sightings are very rare.
