A converted farmstead just over an hour’s drive north of Windhoek, the Elegant Farmstead combines a traditional exterior with a far more contemporary feel inside. Each of the 11 rooms is cool, comfortable and modern, with plenty of space and air-conditioning to make them feel light and airy at all times. Elsewhere there is a restaurant, guest lounge and thatched dining area, while outside there is a refreshing swimming pool, attractive gardens with assorted daybeds, and a floodlit waterhole. This not only attracts a range of wildlife but also doubles as an alternative spot for a scenic meal or drink!
One or two night stays here allow guests to explore the picturesque surrounds on foot, with various hiking trails nearby, and there is also the option to visit a local Herero village. It is perhaps most attractive though for visitors who are not keen to stay in Windhoek, the convenient location meaning that it fits in well with flight arrival and departure times for a relaxing night at the beginning or end of your itinerary.
