The Farm Namibgrens (Afrikaans for 'bordering on the Namib) has belonged to the Rabie Family since 1940. As the farm sits beautifully near the impressive Spreetshoogte Pass, it is the ideal stopover midway between Windhoek and Sesriem, the gateway to the dunes of Sossusvlei. The pass itself descends steeply from the central interior plateau to the desert floor below.

These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
A good one-night stop. A different experience and ok for what it was. Food and service was good. we had fun walking on their property with their dogs!
Very nice location and private. The welcome was a bit poor. I just get the key in the hand without any information. I would have expected information about the walks or the drives in the chalet.
birding was OK. As an overnight between WDH and WB it`s good, really got to appreciate the habitats we passed through. the trip b/w namibgrens and Swakop took longer than anyone estimated, we didn`t get to Swakop until way after dark. Good food!
The guest farm was breathtakingly beautiful. However, we stayed there two different nights on our trip, and both times we were received quite unfriendly. It felt like we were an inconvenience to the woman in the reception house. They can maybe work on their people skills and guest welcoming skills.
