This hotel was well located just a couple of miles from the centre of Windhoek, and in close proximity to a shopping mall and eating places. It was easily accessible from the airport, which made it a convenient starting/finshing point for our holiday. The rooms were comfortable, practical and clean. The pool area was lovely, and relaxing. The breakfasts were...

Terra Africa is a remarkable place. We have stayed in many places in Windhoek, including, at one end of the price scale, the Windhoek Country Club and at the other end, Backpackers Unite. Hands down, Terra Africa is the best. Not at all expensive, but with all of the amenities, comfort, and beauty one can expect. Rolf is the nicest...

Dear Moorhen, Thank you for your feedback. We always value both pro- and con's as this can only be beneficial for the future. Regretably the same factors that has made Guesthouse Terra Africa a smashing success may sometimes be to our detriment, in that as our house was originally designed as a family house, so we have smaller rooms, largers...

on the hills, overlooking Windhuek, just opposite the presidential grounds. Very nice staff, very nice garden - just a little bit too close to a busy street. But nevertheless a perfect place to stay.

We visited Terra Africa at the beginning of our trip and came back at the end. The hosts are wonderful, friendly, funny and very relaxed. Very entertaining. Very nice, big quiet clean rooms. Several areas to relax. Good breakfast. The best B&B we had in Namibia. Highly recommended.

We spent four nights at Terra Africa. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome.
