Gauss Guest Farm
(5 twin rooms) PO Box 6, Kombat; tel/fax: 067 231 083
To reach Gauss, turn into Kombat from the main Otavi–Grootfontein road, then turn right, left, right, and left at successive junctions, heading in the same direction as the sports fields.
The farm itself is in a beautiful open area of fields, surrounded by mountains. Accommodation is in a large bungalow a distance from the main house. Within this is a bar and lounge, as well as five twin rooms, all carpeted, with en-suite showers and toilets. Outside is a large swimming pool.
Active visitors will go walking in the hills, and your hosts can arrange food-drops in caves if you want to stay out for a while. Then there are mountain bikes available to borrow if you wish, and the farm's owner has a landing strip and a micro-light. Note that like most guest farms, you must pre-arrange your stay here.Rates: around N$400, N$300 per person sharing, full board.
