Düsternbrook Guest Farm near Windhoek is open year-round. Not only for overnight guests but also for day visitors. We offer an attractive, varied, and interesting combination of activities for a few hours. However, you can easily spend a whole day here.
A very exciting leopard and cheetah drive, which takes approximately 45 to 50 minutes. Here you can take excellent photos as the distance to the cats will be only 10 to 15 meters. Departure time 14.00 (april until september); 15.30 (september until april).
The style of riding here is Western, and our trails are long established, well-trodden routes with plenty of time to take in our beautiful local scenery. Of course the absence of a car engine also allows for a more peaceful journey, and the opportunity to get a little closer to the wildlife.
On a game drive in our private game park "Otjihorongo", you see game such as Giraffe, Zebra, Oryx, Kudu, Hartebeest, Gnu, Eland, Steenbuck, Ostrich, Warthog, Baboon, Klipspringer and Hippo. This activity takes approximately 2h. Sundowner drink is included.
In the morning we'll go into the Khomas Hochland mountains. A beautiful drive with fantastic scenery and viewpoints. In addition to game such as kudu and oryx, you could see the rare Hartmann's mountain zebra. Trip takes about 1.5h. Coffee/tea included.
