A popular stop-over for travellers heading to the southern regions of the country, The Kalahari Farmhouse is to be found on the outskirts of the village of Stampriet, approximately 60km north-west of Mariental. Built at the site of a permanent spring on the fertile land of the Auob River, the lodge is surrounded by beautiful gardens and farm land. It is a real treat in the middle of the desert. Guests can read a book whilst lounging on the grass and relax after some long drives through the barren landscape in this area. The farmhouse actually supplies fresh produce to other lodges in the Gondwana Collection and guests can freely explore the farm and its cheesery.
The lodge has 11 standard en-suite, cottage-like chalets with colourful patchwork quilts and fireplaces which all look onto the garden lined with towering palms. All the charming chalets come with air conditioning and heating as there can be temperature extremes out here in the desert.
The farmhouse main building was once a manor house constructed at the height of the Karakul sheep farming industry some 50 years ago. It has a restaurant, bar and swimming pool. The lodge's Self Sufficiency Centre, next to the lodge, grows seasonal vegetables and makes a variety of cheeses, salamis, sausages and biltong. Several chickens wander about and pigs find their home here too.
