THE ELEGANT FARMSTEAD

Elegance, Tranquillity and Wildlife


Allow yourself to indulge in refreshingly different experience, a fusion of old and new at The Elegant Farmstead. A typical old farmhouse with boutique comfort, focussed on thoughtful touches and an elegant interior, giving it a modern and stylish twist. This unique combination of old and new is tucked away in a beautiful Garden of Eden with lush plants and trees. And just beyond stretches the African bush with an abundance of wildlife. 

Sit back and enjoy the tranquillity of The Elegant Farmstead after a long flight or an exhilarating safari. The Elegant Farmstead offers 11 tastefully furnished rooms with en-suite bathrooms. The stylish and modern rooms invite you to relax and unwind in the unique atmosphere of farmstyle life as enjoyed in yesteryear, yet never tiring. 

The beautiful and tranquil garden offers many seating arrangements and day beds meant to inspire the outdoor life on the Farmstead. Cool down in the huge, sparkling pool or lie on one of the many loungers whilst sipping a cocktail or reading a book. Treat yourself to a casual Champaign lunch under the mighty camel thorn trees in the dry river bed. Relax in one of our chic lounges, take endless strolls along the dry river beds and enjoy an unforgettable African sundowner on the nearby Signal Hill. 

In the evenings we invite you to unwind in our trendy cigar lounge and indulge in an excellent bottle of fine South African wine. Afterwards tickle your taste buds with our delicious cuisine, served in the warm straw-thatched dining area or under the African sky. After dinner take the time to enjoy a drink around fire pits, enjoying the African outdoors experience of open skies and clean air.

The Elegant Farmstead offers a large variety of wildlife and plenty of birds on the 2500 hectare farm. Springbok, Eland, Waterbuck, Giraffe, Kudu, Hartebeest, Blesbok, Duiker, Steenbok, Warthog, Ostrich and Jackal roam freely amongst the breath-taking setting of mountains, dry river beds, and open plains. Take pleasure in a game drive or view the game from the tranquil wooden deck. 

Various hiking trails via the dry river beds and open plains to the Signal Mountain can be explored on your own. The hiking trails will allow you to become intimate with nature as the endless horizons are engraved into your heart. 

We also recommend a visit to the Herero village Ovitoto, Okahandja with the famous Namibian wood-carving market and cultural sites such as the Herero graves.
