Waterberg Guest Farm - Situated at the foot of the majestic Waterberg Plateau in Northern Central Namibia is the magnificent Waterberg Guest Farm, a 42,000 hectare paradise of natural African savanna.
The ranch 'Okosongomingo', on which the Waterberg Guest Farm is located, has been in the Schneider-Waterberg family since 1909 and your host, Harry Schneider-Waterberg, a third generation German Namibian, carries on the family tradition of cattle farming. Okosongomingo is still a fully operational cattle farm breeding Santa Gertrudis, a cattle breed originating from Texas in the late 60's, which has proven itself as hardy and extremely well adapted to Namibia's dry climate. The farm has also gained a reputation for its breeding of wild Arabian horses.
Waterberg Guest Farm is conveniently situated just off the main road, halfway between Namibia's capital, Windhoek, and the world-famous Etosha National Park. It is the perfect place for your first or last stop.
The original 1930s manager's house was converted into a guesthouse with 4 double and twin rooms, all with En-suite bathrooms. All rooms have toilets, showers and basins (one of the rooms also has an additional bathtub). All rooms have their own private entrance leading out to a veranda.
The spacious dining room is also located in the guesthouse, along with the comfortable lounge - the perfect spot to relax after a long day outdoors. In addition to the guesthouse, there are five 'bush bungalows' situated 160 meters from the main guesthouse. The truly unique bungalows are built according to the traditional Herero method.
In the traditional African grass-roofed "lapa" next to the swimming pool guests can enjoy their afternoon coffee or a sundowner. Alternatively they can sit on the wooden deck or around the fireplace and watch the floodlit waterhole as antelope, warthog and the occasional leopard come to drink, and in turn, be watched by the resident family of baboons.
