Windhoek Game Camp
Self Catering accommodation north of Windhoek
In an area known as Brakwater a mere 20km drive north of Windhoek lies Windhoek Game Camp. Although situated so close to to the capital, this lodge offers a tranquil setting in the Namibian bush. Here the noise of traffic rushing by is replaced by bird song while guests have an opportunity to view some magnificent Namibian wildlife.
Although primarily catering for those looking for self catering accommodation, a continental breakfast can be arranged (although this needs to be pre-booked), while the location allows for easy access to Windhoek's numerous restaurants and cafes.
The tents are not what you might expect from a self catering establishment, the emphasis here is on quality and a touch of luxury. Each tent can accommodate 2 adults & 2 children and is built on a raised wooden platform. At Windhoek Game Camp you will find crisp white linen, an en-suite bathroom and a well equipped self catering kitchen (and braai area). Each unit has power points for hairdryers and shavers (220v) as well as an external power point. All this is topped off with views over the veldt and mountains of central Namibia.
The self catering kitchen in each unit is well equipped with a microwave, fridge, & hob and all the cutlery, crockery you would hope to find. Firelighters, ice & wood can be purchased from reception.
The communal pool is very popular during the summer months, while larger groups can rent the cosy custom built braai (BBQ) area.
Permanent residents of Windhoek Game Camp include giraffe (who can often be seen strolling around the pool area), kudu, oryx, hartebeest, springbok, warthog, ostrich and guinea fowl. All of these can be freely seen roaming around your tent, or at the camps own waterhole. For the more active there is also a hiking trail.
In order to ensure guests have an exclusive stay at the camp, day visitors are not allowed on the property. For those concerned with security the luxury tents are surrounded by an electric fence and entry is controlled via the main gate.
- Walking Trails
- There is a route around the inside of the camp where the chances of encountering some of the game camps' residents are high.
Follow the B1 north of Windhoek in the direction of Okahandja. About 1.9 km after the double lane highway ends turn left on the D1473 (the Brakwater / Dobra intersection). At the T junction D1491 turn left and drive for about 1 km and then turn right on the Brakwater South road, Valley of Angels road sign. Drive for 2,3km along the gravel road and when the road turns sharply to the right, you will see the Windhoek Game Camp reception on a hill to your left
