OMAHA Guest Farm & Estate Description
Come and experience the warm hospitality and tranquil setting of OMAHA GUEST FARM & ESTATE situated at the base of Mt Etjo! OMAHA offers its guests the utmost in peace, tranquility, and privacy. The 10,000 acre estate has a natural beauty that is virtually unsurpassed. With a lovely landscaped garden, numerous hiking trails, and splendid vistas of Mt Etjo at the doorstep, one can become lost in space and time…no red lights, no shops, no petrol within 75 km! “Omaha” in the Herero language means "the place where one can live". Mt Etjo, standing over 2000 meters in height, is a “sister mountain” to the famed Waterberg Plateau/National Park lying 120 km to the NW. They share a similar geological history and are capped to a depth of 70 meters with the distinguishing red “Etjo sandstone” formed during millions of years of severe desert conditions. Mt Etjo harbors several protected species including Hartmann’s Mt. Zebra, Damara Dik-dik, Leopard and Klipspringer. OMAHA has a number of other wild free-ranging species such as Kudu, Oryx, Cheetah, and Bat-eared fox. Seasonally, over 250 bird species occur, including waterfowl. RATES For short-term guests, OMAHA has 5 double bedrooms with private bathrooms that can sleep up to 12-14 persons. Rates include DINNER, Bed & Breakfast. Meals (1) typically feature fresh vegetables from the garden and venison prepared in the traditional Namibian-farm manner and (2) are served family style. Vegetarian (free) and Halal (slight premium) dishes are available upon request. The OMAHA estate is now being offered for extended stays, weddings, other special or private occasions, and as a “holiday home”, either self catering or with kitchen & house cleaning staff. You may bring your own provisions, or we will stock the pantry, refrigerator and bar for you. Lodge bookings for extended stays are for a minimum of 5 days and three bedrooms (Pool Room, Cheetah Room, & African Room). Both the Tower Room and Gecko Room (exterior to the Lodge) may be included. Make inquiries directly to the management and provide as much detail as possible for a quotation.
