About 3km south of Otavi, Khorab is set back just off the main B1 road to Otjiwarongo. It was built in 1996 and is a beautiful place to stop. Khorab's main building has a large, plush bar area, relaxing couches, a small curio shop and a breakfast room, all under high thatched ceilings. At the back of this, set around green lawns, herbaceous borders and even a small artificial stream, are ten chalets, six of which can be linked (if necessary) to make larger family rooms.
Each chalet has tiled floors dotted with rugs, twin beds (which can be pushed together for a double), and airy thatched ceilings. They are large and well built, using colourful fabrics, with en-suite showers and toilets, and much space and style – though they do not have telephones, fans or air conditioning. This is a stylish place to stop for a night, but lacks intrinsic reasons to encourage you to stay longer.Rates: single N$435, N$320 per person sharing, including breakfast. Children under 12 sharing N$100. Dinner N$90, lunch N$55.
