To reach Dürsternbrook, turn west off the B1, about 30km north of Windhoek, on to the D1499, and then follow the clear signs for another 18km. Dürsternbrook's venerable main claim to fame is its leopards, which are kept in a large enclosure, and can be viewed from a vehicle, or on foot. It also has a much larger area of land for drives and walks to view less dangerous game, including hartebeest, giraffe, eland, oryx, kudu and smaller buck. Horseriding is an additional attraction.
Dürsternbrook's main building is a large old colonial farmhouse dating from 1910. Its walls are adorned with hunting trophies, a practice it encourages with limited trophy hunting. It was one of Namibia's first guest farms, and its owners speak English, German, French and Afrikaans.Rates: N$658–804 double, including dinner, breakfast, and leopard/cheetah viewing and game drive. Single supplement N$203.
