Düsternbrook Guest Farm Job Vacancies in Namibia
Historical farm house
The historical old guest farm in Namibia, was built in colonial style and out of natural stone, is nestled at the foot of the Khomas Highland Mountains and the surrounding African savannah. Before 1908 the area was called ”Otjiho- rongo“ (the place of the kudu). The ranch was situated on the old ox wagon road which formed the main supply route from the coast (Walfish bay) to the inland, called Bay road.
