Ozombanda Guest Farm
(4 rooms) PO Box 449, Okahandja; tel: 062 503870; fax: 062 503996; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ozombanda is easily reached on the south side of the B2, about 30km west of Okahandja. It started accepting guests in early 1997, and its owners, Volker and Monika, remain refreshingly enthusiastic. This is a typical Namibian farm, where you can relax whilst gaining an insight into how it all works.
Ozombanda has four palatial thatched chalets made to identical (and unexpectedly) high standards, with tiled floors, large twin/king-size beds and en-suite shower and toilet. These stand near the large swimming pool, which is just behind the farmstead. It's a lovely place to relax – provided that you can talk Volker out of taking you on a long farm drive to show you things.
The farm stretches for about 120km2, some of which has cattle on it, some just game – primarily kudu, gemsbok, and springbok, with a few smaller antelope, baboon, and the odd spotted and even brown hyena. On one side of the farm there's a kopje, perfect for short climbs or seeking leopard in the twilight. Ozombanda's located conveniently enough for a one-night stopover, but ideally allow two nights here to relax and take a farm drive or two. It's outstanding value.Rates: N$575 single, N$495 per person sharing, including full board.
