Ever wondered what it feels like to experience a breeze on a hot summer's night around a fire with the jackal's cry as the last colour drains from the endless landscape? Far away from towns and cities is a rustic little farmhouse and four campsites on a huge farm at the foot of the Erongo Mountains – Erongo Rocks - Farmhouse & Camping.
It is argued that the Erongo mountains are one of Namibia's hidden gems. Isolated and truly wild, there are some treasures to be experienced. From the rare and endemic small black mongoose to the majestic Verreaux's eagle scouring the magnificent and unique landscape.
There is something for every kind of nature lover. A variety of hiking and mountain bike trails, birding, photography, natural history, free roaming wildlife, and much more!
We currently offer self catering accommodation. The house is fully stocked with everything you need.
We have a marked Jeep Track with lovely viewpoints, ideal for sundowners. Also great spots for yoga enthusiasts.
Would you like to arrive and find your fridge full of food for breakfast, lunch & dinner? If you book this ahead of time, we can arrange for this service.
We respect your privacy and won’t disturb you unless you need us. Once you check in, the house is yours to treat as if it was your very own home.
