Where to start.......made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. Travelling as a family (with a 4 and 7 year old) it was a much more interesting to stay on a family run farm than in a nondescript hotel. Kids got to learn a bit about farm life, given lessons on the incredible stary skies, could even have gone to school with the local kids (if we'd had time!). Lovely camp fire and drinks at sundown. Spacious, clean, comfortable minimalistic style rooms with lovely shaded veranda overlooking the waterhole - which apparently rhinos frequent (just not when we were looking!). The day trip to meet the San people in their 'living museum' was good fun and informative. Our son was enthralled by making fire by rubbing sticks together and using their bow and arrows (OK - I was too!). He even tried his hand at making jewelry!

We stayed at the campsite, we were all alone in this beautiful part of the farm, and had it all to ourselves. It was great, everything worked out well, we had good shade and the sunset was beautiful. It was a hot day so we enjoyed a cool shower. We slept well, the night was cool and we woke up with the birds! I can recommend this little paradise for nature lovers.

In fact we did not have the feeling as though there was a lot of interest in our stay. As we were told that the rooms were built the year before we expected pretty new rooms. We found:
- rooms with a strange smell coming from the toilet.
- if the rooms were really one year old, then the toilet was minimum 20 years old, at least the way it looked. Apparently it has mit been cleaned on a regular basis, as the inside had a yellow-brownish color, which should have been white
- as the area is a pretty warm one, ideally the room should be equipped with air con. Understand that this might cause problems with electricity, a fan would have helped to make the night more comfortable. Without both the night was equal to a nightmare.
- the rooms were pretty big, but at the end we had only limited space for our belongings.
- some minor things f. i. we stayed in a double room, there was only one glass in the bathroom (not that I wanted to use it) shows lack of interest from side of the hosts, sorry to say: the staff is only as good as the host
- bugs were running on the floor of the rooms, guess that the were harmless, in fact we did not know. So we used insect repellant...

To put it in a nutshell, we would not book there again.

We toured Namibia for 6 weeks and our children (5 and 7 years) still talk so much about Omandumba. It really was a wonderful ‘family’ experience in many regards and quite different from what you usually find on other guest farms. Eating together, having very informative talks, playing with the animals, exploring the beautiful settings of the farm, climbing huge rocks, seeing the rock paintings, sitting around the fire with other guests and the family for a drink….

The spacious rooms divided in 4 houses are very comfortable and ‘stylish simple’ with a veranda that provides good shade and a beautiful view. My wife ‘had to’ immediately start painting the amazing landscape. We hope to be able to come back to Namibia and would then stay longer at Omandumba!!!!!

Room Tip: book in advance

We stayed here for just one night. Too bad for us. I could have stayed 2-3 -- so that we could have seen more sights around the farm (which could also be thought of as a very large ranch). The rooms are basic, but new, clean and roomy. The best part is the communal meals and the socializing around the camp fire. Don't miss the opportunity to see the local rock art.
