Bespoke tours in Southern Africa


Otjiwarongo – meaning in Herero ‘the place of fat cattle’ – is a tranquil, German-influenced town with numerous lodging options, shops and other amenities, making it ideal for a stopover between Windhoek and Etosha National Park. The region includes the farming districts from Outjo and Otjiwarongo in the west, to Grootfontein and Tsumeb in the east. Tranquil, vast, and breathtakingly beautiful, the region is known for its landscapes of undulating bushveld hills, deep gorges, clear streams, and magnificent mountains. The area features many game reserves which are home to an array of wildlife. Points of interest include, in the town itself, the Crocodile Ranch, where visitors can view these fascinating reptiles and, if they fancy, sample a selection of crocodile meat dishes at the ranch restaurant. Nearby attractions include the CCF, Cheetah Conservation Fund, as well the Africat Foundation, located at Okonjima. Both offer the possibility to watch some of the cats and learn about them, as well as their threats in Namibia. Lastly, the Waterberg Plateau Park, located south-east of Otjiwarongo,  is a 50-kilometre-long and 16-kilometre-wide sandstone plateau, dubbed 'table mountain' because of its shape. It offers many walks on its slopes and the view from the top, over the surrounding plains, is a sight to behold.
