Property Facilities:

The Lapa is the central communal area and is situated on the main lawn where several tame wildlife species roam free. Behind the main area are Chachma Baboon enclosures where guests can watch the baboons going about their daily antics. The restaurant is run by an acclaimed Executive Chef and his team who present guests with exquisite plated meals. The Bar in the front of the Lapa provides guests with a wide selection of snacks, drinks, fine wines and other alcoholic beverages. Towards one side of the Lapa, is the Boma where the great African traditional "braai" is held. The chefs grill a selection of meats over an open fire pit and the dining area surrounds the warmth of the fire underneath the cool night skies. The pool will help to cool down the hot summer days while the fireplace in the restaurant help warm the cold nights. The kiosk and reception is also placed at the Lapa for convenient check in`s and purchasing unique Harnas paraphernalia.

Attractions:

Morning Feeding Tour:
On the morning feeding tour you will hear about the history, facts and stories on our big cats, wild dogs, baboons etc. The drive is conducted in an open game drive vehicle ensuring impeccable views during the feeding tour. You will witness the beastly grip of a lion grabbing a chunk of meat in mid-air as well as the immense power of a leopard leaping up a tree for his meal. The amazing sounds and behaviour of the endangered wild dog will leave a lasting impression on you before seeing the agile and graceful cheetah. One of the highlights of this tour is watching the baboons feed. Large and small baboons scramble around like naughty school kids while grabbing food from each other and stuffing their faces with as much as they can eat!
The tour starts at 09h00 and continues for about 3 ½ hours.

Afternoon Tour:
On the afternoon tour you will have the opportunity to experience Harnas on a more personal level. Learn more about the history, nursery, care facility and feel the heartbeat of Harnas. Your guide will accompany you to view amazing animals like the meerkats, mongoose, brown hyena, vervet monkeys, cheetahs and many more animals with amazing life stories. The tour will also cover the church, volunteer village and many more intimate Harnas sights. The tour starts at the Lapa at 15h00 during winter time and 15h30 during summer and the duration is +/- 2 hours.

All staff members were all extremely helpful and friendly. The tour guides are very well trained and knowledgeable. It was really a great time as a family and well worth every cent paid. I would definitely recommend this facility as an outing for family or friends.

We stayed there 2 nights in family, and were welcomed late at night as our plane was late.
The room is just amazing, spacious and well thought. Surrounded by animals, all the time, you can even be very close to many of them.
You feel the animals are taken care of, and you can be part of it. We did the feeding excursion, definitely impressive and worth it :)
Food and breakfast are okay, staff is helpful, smiling and efficient, certainly our best experience with animals in Namibia.

Superb. 5 out of 5
