And you can even have a tour of the farm.
Because of the "farm" theme, the rooms have a definitely rural ambience...
Our room. Simple, but comfortable.
Loved the bathroom sink and fixtures. Especially the rainwater shower head!
We almost wished that it was cold enough to light a fire in the fireplace!
Our front porch...complete with farm cat!
They grow grapes on the farm as well.
The most interesting part about this farm? First of all, it employs about half of the nearby town of Stampriet. Second, the farm is owned by Gondwana Collection and it supplies fresh fruit, veggies, cheese, and meat directly to all of the Gondwana lodges in Namibia. This guarantees the best fresh foods on your plate at any of the lodges!
Stuffed tomato appetizer.
Kudu steak with fresh veggies and potatoes.
Another farm cat.
Now that's a different Christmas Tree!
Mandy took us for a tour of the farm. She works in the dairy where they make all the fresh cheese. We can tell you, Mandy is a great cheese maker!
Greenhouses for growing lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, squash, etcetera!
Almost ready for picking!
It rained a lot while we were at the Kalahari Farmhouse, but we really enjoyed sitting on the porch of our chalet with a glass of wine and watching the rain come down. It's a relaxing place to hang out for a couple of days!
Oh, and they have a really cool bar!
Kevin, hanging out at the bar!
Relaxing by the pool.
Not much in the way of criticism, although one thing bothered us both. Of course it's a farm, so there are more flies around than normal. You know, like house flies. Doesn't normally bother us, but when you're sat down to a nice meal, it would nice to not have them buzzing around all the time. It's also nice that they have the windows wide open during meals because everybody likes the fresh air. But there are no screens on the windows. We both think this would be an easy fix by having screens on the windows, especially because this is a farm.
Otherwise, it's a comfortable place to read a book for a couple of days and simply relax!
