About 3km from the centre of town, just off the B1 road to Rehoboth and close to Eros Airport, the Hotel Safari covers several acres and includes a large pool set in the grounds. Its younger (and larger) sister-hotel, the Safari Court, is adjacent.
The Safari has two styles of accommodation. Budget rooms are laid out motel style, while slightly more expensive 'flats' are housed in a separate two-storey block.
All the Safari's rooms are a good standard, with en-suite toilet and shower/bath, direct-dial telephone, minibar/fridge, tea/coffee maker, and a TV. An excellent breakfast is included, and drinks and snacks (tasty toasted sandwiches, burgers, etc) are served beside the pool throughout the day – making this a popular venue for a mid-afternoon bite to eat. The hotel also has its own restaurant and grill bar.
If you've no transport, then the complimentary minibus is convenient for trips to/from town, leaving opposite the Kalahari Sands, on Independence Avenue.
