Hotels and other accommodation

Areas / Regions – Towns I have divided the Namibian map into horizontal areas (towns always arranged from west to east) for your planning convenience. If you find this overview too boring, then simply go back to the first page to download the Map! with 35 embedded ‘hyperlinks’ which lead to the respective towns/hotels. It is free!
Each property is attributed to the closest settlement or town; and I have included the exact street address in the hotel description. You just cannot get lost!

Simply click on the town link (of where your holidays start, for example) select the most suitable hotel, reserve the room, come back here and click on the town link of the next leg, select hotel, …. (repeat, repeat, repeat!)

Recommendation: let me recommend that you pre-book your entire itinerary. It’s really no fun rocking up at your favorite camp just before sunset only to discover that they are fully booked and don’t have a pillow for you for the night. Worse yet, tired and displeased as you are, you will have to cover another (how many?) kilometers on unknown and difficult gravel roads to reach the next neighbor… and hope for that pillow…

Camping – The simplest form of course. Contrary to Europe / America however, a camping site is often nothing more than a dustbin chained to a tall tree.  If you’re lucky, you will find a brick-slabbed-fire-making place! You will need your own camping equipment and you will use communal showers and toilets.

B&B or Backpacker – this stands for Bed & Breakfast and the most reasonable accommodation property, often with communal showers and toilets. In some houses, you will pay extra for your breakfast – check the room description!

Guest farm – typical for Namibia. A guest farm is a commercial cattle farm or agricultural farm with only a handful of guest rooms. Decor is usually very simple, but the farmers are extremely hospitable and welcome their guest as if they were long-lost friends.

Rest Camp – is very often a collection of camping sites, simple rooms and country cottages (see photo) to accommodate the widest variety of travellers.

Lodge – this property is geared to serve every need. Usually lodges have a large number of air conditioned rooms, a central ‘lapa’ (thatch roof) for the reception, bar and restaurant and swimming pool, and lodges also offer guided game drives and other extras for their guests.

Pension – this is the German name for a small town hotel which offers well-appointed rooms and breakfast. Often in Namibia, a Pension will also have TV and Mini-bar in the room, a swimming pool in the garden and a very cozy atmosphere.

Hotel – is an internationally recognized expression…
