Ghaub combines ambiance of pioneer days with modern comfort. Buildings, palm trees and farm walls recall the mission station founded by the Rhenish Missionary Society in 1895.
In the late 1990s, the buildings have been renovated and guests wings have been added in the same style.
12 rooms with bathroom, lounge and patio, coffee station & mini bar, 220 V power, restaurant (set menu) and bar, large swimming pool with children's pool and free WLAN at reception.
The pitches are well apart from each other, hidden under trees on the slope of a little mountain and offering a view of the valley.
3 pitches, each with with own shower/WC, lawn, barbecue, table, sink, power plug, 5 min. walk to the lodge (pool, free WLAN) and dinner available in the restaurant of the lodge.
ur guests always praise the calmness exuded by the wide-open valley and the buildings of the former missionary station with its age-old trees and sprawling lawns. But besides a place of relaxation, Ghaub is also a place of adventure.
Rhino drive (summer 16h00, winter 15h00, 2-3 hrs.)
A charming contrast to Etosha: The 30 km² mountainous area of our nature reserve is home to game such as oryx, impala, eland, blesbok and red hartebeest. We almost always encounter white rhinos. Another highlight is the unique rock engravings of our ancestors. Experts rave about the elephant.
Rhino tracking (summer and winter 8h00, 2-3 hrs.)
Accompany the trackers of our "Rhino Patrol" on foot in their search of the white rhinos. You will learn a lot about the behaviour of the animals. With a little luck you will encounter the rhinos on eye level. Fitness is required.
Cave excursion (Summer and winter 8h00, 2-3 hrs.)
Not for claustrophobic visitors! Physical fitness is also a must: the deeper the cave, the less oxygen in the air. With a passage system extending to a length of 2.5 km, the Ghaub limestone cave is the third largest cave in Namibia. We have to crawl and climb in places, so please wear sturdy clothes and shoes. Helmets and headlamps are provided.
Whether you want to take a walk or go on a hike – well-demarcated trails lead you through the mountain paradise of Ghaub with its over 250 bird species. A cemetery and a stone pulpit at the side of the road are historical reminders of a small missionary parish and the last fights between the German Schutztruppe and troops of the South African Union during World War One.
