Duwisib Guest Farm


... is located in the Helmeringhausen area in the Southern region of Namibia.

Tucked away in a valley in the mountains between Helmeringhausen and Maltahohe is the remarkable Duwisib Castle.

Built in 1909 by a German military officer, this small fortress became the centre of a personal fiefdom in which the somewhat neurotic owner spent most of his time indulging in his passion for thoroughbred horses. After he was killed at the Battle of the Somme in 1916, the estate fell into disrepair and the horses ran wild.

Today the castle has been almost fully restored and is open daily to visitors, whilst the descendants of those same horses continue to run wild in the hills.

Duwisib Guest Farm was part of the original estate and is now a small and intimate guest farm, with 7 rooms and a small restaurant with excellent home-cooked food. They also run a nice cafe over at the castle.
