Experiencing Ghaub

Our guests always praise the calmness exuded by the wide-open valley and the buildings of the former mission station with its age-old trees and sprawling lawns. But besides a place of relaxation, Ghaub is also a place of adventure.

Ghaub Rhino Drive

Rhino drive

(afternoons, 2-3 hrs.)

Round trip through the African bush savannah in the Otavi Mountains. A charming contrast to Etosha: The mountainous area of our nature reserve is home to game such as giraffe, zebra, eland, impala and red hartebeest. We almost always encounter white rhinos.

Ghaub Rhino Tracking

Rhino tracking

(mornings, 2-3 hrs.)

Accompany the trackers of our “Rhino Patrol” on foot in their search of the white rhinos. You will learn a lot about the behaviour of the animals. With a little luck you will encounter the rhinos – on eye level. Fitness is required.

Ghaub Cave Excursion

Cave excursion

(max. 6 persons, mornings, 2-3 hrs.)

Not for claustrophobic visitors! Physical fitness is also a must: the deeper the cave, the less oxygen in the air. With a passage system extending to a length of 2.5 km, the Ghaub limestone cave is the third largest cave in Namibia. We have to crawl and climb in places, so please wear sturdy clothes and shoes. Helmets and headlamps are provided.

Ghaub Farm Tour

Farm tour

(only for groups of 10 p. or more, booking 7 days in advance; mornings, 2-3 hrs.)

Agriculture in Namibia? Indeed! Since it is raining well in this region and there is plenty of groundwater, we at Ghaub do not only raise cattle, but also grow vegetables. The tour provides fascinating insights into an extraordinary farming operation.

Ghaub Nature Trails

Nature Trails

(Exclusive to overnight guests.)

Whether you want to take a walk or go on a hike – farm roads lead you through the mountain paradise of Ghaub with its over 250 bird species. A cemetery and a stone pulpit at the side of the road are historical reminders of a small missionary parish and the last fights between the German Schutztruppe and troops of the South African Union during World War One.
