We stayed two nights here on our way to Etosha. When we arrived we were greeted very warmly and shown to our lodge. It was without flaw. Everything one might hope for and more. Super beds, the ability to open every window with great bug guards, lovely stoop to sit out on. Great. We were able to wander around and... More

Beautiful accomodation (tidy, clean, spacious and comfortable cottages or an extensive campsite) combined with delicious food and very friendly staff made our stay at Sophienhof Lodge very memorable!

We spent 5 days at Sophienhof and had a wonderful time. As Namibia in winter is very dry we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Sophienhof to find the grounds very lovely and green and well maintained. This is a family run operation and we were greeted like family when we arrived. The rooms are quite comfortable and include... More

We were received in a friendly way by the manager, who showed us our room which was comfortable, clean, spacious and prepared with care. It had an area outside where we could sit and watch the waterhole, where we did see some game. We had brought food to cook on the braai, and the manager kindly saw that we had... More

The Lodge at the farm "Sophienhof" is very nice - large bungalows, lot of space, with nice character. Even better are the people there. Very friendly and helpful. We received a lot of good ideas for our stay in the Etosha Nationalpark. The Game drive at the farm is great, too. Breakfast and dinner were very good - and the... More

One of the best, most peaceful camping sites during our long travels around southern Africa. The campsites come with water tap, lights, power points, a bag of fire wood, and large raised firepit perfect for sitting around with your feet up. Campsite number 1 has a sweet double bench and wonderful trees which the hornbills love. Almost all the sites... More
