Kalahari Farmhouse will be open to guests as of the end of April

Avatar of gunnar gunnar - 10. October 2016 - Gondwana Collection

The eleven rooms for the Kalahari Farmhouse are available in chalets reminiscent of the Cape Dutch style. Kalahari Farmhouse and the Self-Sufficiency Centre are supplied by the Stampriet Aquifer. It is one of Namibia's largest and most important aquifers and lies underneath the Kalahari dunes like a huge water reservoir.

The Kalahari Farmhouse in Stampriet will be closed for renovations and the Gondwana Training Academy the first four months of 2017 as of 1 January. It will open to guests as soon as 28 April 2017. Originally the Kalahari Farmhouse was to be used for the Gondwana Academy as from January until July 2017. However, this year's training programme has been streamlined for various reasons. Gondwana's current Managing Director Mannfred Goldbeck, soon to be the Director of Brand and Marketing, will head the Academy.

The Tourism Industry is currently experiencing a boom and the prospects for the coming year look promising. Therefore Gondwana can make use of the eleven rooms at Kalahari Farmhouse once the Academy courses have concluded at the end of April 2017. The rooms have already been released for bookings.

Located on the fringes of the village of Stampriet in the valley of the seasonal Auob River, Kalahari Farmhouse combines upmarket hospitality with a rural ambience. The reception and restaurant are housed in a farmhouse, built decades ago in the. The small farming business next-door keeps the kitchen stocked with fresh produce for the delicious dishes on the menu. Kalahari Farmhouse is ideally suited for a short holiday with the whole family.

When the Kalahari Farmhouse is not open to guests, it will serve as the home of the Gondwana Academy. The lodge group’s hospitality training and leadership development programme aims to provide service excellence, promoting Namibia as a top African tourist destination.

While the Academy is initially aimed at increasing the skills of Gondwana staff, the intention is to also provide training for people aspiring to work in the hospitality industry and to be a source of leadership development for service professionals wanting to further their skills.
