Terra africa guest house

Very nice space, although the footing on the path to our bungalow was very uneven and difficult to navigate after dark.

Nice place to stay for a night in Windhoek, although you will need a car to get to the centre of town or to any restaurants.

Although a bit outside the city center we liked the guesthouse. It has a friendly atmosphere and was less noisy than we had first expected.

Only one night here. Location was more remote than Vondelhof and would require driving to see Windhoek. That said, the grounds were especially beautiful, and the food very good.

Love this place. Esp. the rooms leading out to the pool. Third time we`ve stayed there. Friendly, helpful, love the attention to `African` detail. Location I like but it`s not a downtown spot.

Very pleasant. We had 3 different rooms (the first 2 quite cramped, but the 3rd one nice and roomy, though missing the nice courtyard view). It is well situated for driving to and fro, has very friendly & helpful staff, and had reliable WiFi, which we really appreciated.
