We stayed for just one night at the lovely Farmhouse on our way south to Luederitz but would happily stayed for longer. After driving for a few hours through the dry countryside it is lovely to be suddenly surrounded by greenery, flowers and birds and listen to the wind in the palm trees.
And that is only the beginning of a wonderful stay. The cottages are quaint, on the small side but very comfortable. The bathroom is semi-open (at the top) but it does the trick, and the shower is good.
Dinner was delicious and very imaginative, and the service impeccable all round.
The small shop deserves a special mention because it's so nicely laid out and full of lovely merchandise a bit outside the normal spread.
The Farmhouse is some way away from Mariental, so it's a considerable detour if you are stopping over going from North to South but I will go the extra mile any day to stay there again.

Although 50 km off the main south / north BI, worth the diversion.

A surprising treed green oasis in the arid kalahari. Accommodation is private in separate little cozy cottages. Adequately furnished and all functioning. A fireplace to counter the winter chill.

Welcoming and helpful staff. A good restaurant and an interesting little shop supplying locally made goods such as handbags and the like.

One of the Gondwana Lodges we always wanted to visit. It is a bit out of the way travelling from Cape Town to Windhoek as you have to drive to and from Stampriet to the B1. The friendly staff, good food and clean rooms made up for the detour. Should be an excellent stopover travelling from the Kgalagadi (Mata Mata) to Windhoek.

We use this accommodation to interrupt one of our long distance drive. The Farmhouse was well situated with a small creek and enough trees to find shadow ;-) and we ware happy to get a wonderful Steak of oryx for the diner.
Thanks for a good stay.

A nice surprises with excellent service, nice and comfortable accommodation and great food. The people were very friendly and attentive. The room was initially cold and we would have appreciated a fire in the the room.
