Just west of Oropoko, and reached along the same D2156, Moringa is run by the Böhmcker family (who have been here since 1905) in a traditional style. It is typical of the country's adaptable farms, having farmed karakul for many years, before the market for the pelts crashed. Then it turned to beef, then became involved in hunting, and most recently tourism.
Moringa was one of the earliest farms to re-introduce game onto the land, and this has paid real dividends. Around 100km2 of the farm is now devoted to game, which is relatively relaxed and plentiful. Here you'll find giraffe, blesbok, kudu, springbok, leopard, cheetah, and more besides – and driving or walking around Moringa feels much more like a game reserve than most guests farms. Don't miss seeing, and perhaps exploring on foot, the large hillside stands of Moringa ovalifolia
(it's the same contorted species that's well known from the Haunted Forest, in Etosha) from which the farm takes its name.
One game drive is included in the farm's normal full-board rate, below. The farmhouse itself has a bar, a good small pool and a very welcoming conservatory for the winter. The cooking is traditional, with a strong German influence, and so if you are looking to relax at a pleasant traditional guest farm, this could be perfect.Rates: N$420 per person sharing full board, including one game drive.
