The 7000 ha farm within the majestic Khomas Hochland mountain range is just a stone throw away from Namibia’s capital, Windhoek. A wide range of activities are offered on the farm including camping and picnic day visits. And for the more adventurous outdoor lovers also mountain biking and hiking.
Gather your friends and family for a weekend out in Mother Nature and encounter some of the best hiking and mountain biking within an hour from Windhoek. Or just spend the weekend relaxing in an exclusive idyllic scenery.
The hiking enthusiast has various trails to choose from. You can attempt the challenging 16 km Leopard Hiking Trail, the more relaxed 7 km Dassie Hiking Trail or even both on consecutive days. And for the cyclists – the demanding Castle Hill return route of 32 km will definitely test your will power climbing over 500 m just to get to the top. However, you will be rewarded with countless free riding moments on your way back. Or you can just enjoy one of the many easier routes within the Springbok Reserve ideal for families or beginners.
All this is only 70 km west of Windhoek (about 1.5 hour travel time) and although gravel road is easy accessible with either a 2×4 or 4×4 vehicle.
One of our favorite campsites close to Windhoek. Amazing views; great hiking trails; lovely private camping area with picnic table, nice clean ablutions, and plenty of shade. Make sure you take the trails past the toilet up the hill to the sundowner spot!Kathryn Welter-Savio via Google Reviews
