Midgard Lodge

close to Windhoek - Namibia

The large farm called Midgard is nestled in the unspoiled natural splendour of the Otjihavera mountains only 90mins drive from Windhoek. This beautiful country estate is an ideal hide-away especially on the first or last stop of your Namibian holiday for self-drive tourists and families alike. The grounds also provide the perfect backdrop for meetings, team-building events and for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or weddings.

The old farm house, built of clay bricks, was converted into a guest farm in 1993. Midgard means 'Empire of the People' and is deeply rooted in Germanic mythology. Midgard Lodge is well known for its food and is a popular place for Windhoek residents to enjoy Sunday lunch. The varied cuisine caters for all tastes. Meals are served with a variety of biologically grown fruit and vegetables from the lodges' own garden.

Guests can enjoy their meals outside, in the lapa or boma dining area. Drinks are also served in the pool bar. There are 2 swimming pools offering respite from the hot Namibian sunshine. Guests can also work out in the gym and take a sauna. The private skittle alley (Kegelbahn) is great fun for all the family. Others prefer 8-ball in the pool room or some time watching television.

Accommodation at Midgard Lodge is in 46 rooms with either mountain, courtyard, garden or pool views. They are located in single or 2 story buildings in the beautiful gardens:

  • Standard Rooms: The 36 x Standard Rooms have an en-suite bathroom with a shower or a bath, air-conditioning, complementary Wi-Fi, in-room safe, hair-dryers, tea/coffee station, LCD TV with hotel package satellite channels and electronic door locks.
