Ababis Guest Farm


Ababis Guest Farm is located on the edge of the Naukluft Park. Its name comes from the word ‘calabash’ – a Nama word for ‘carrying water’. This guest house is 160-year-old, one of the oldest guest farms in the south of Namibia and has been a guest farm since 1993. It was established as an outpost for the former “Kaiserliches Landgestuet Nauchas” and belonged to the Voigt family until 1985. It is now being run by the Schulze Neuhoff family. Our Berghouse was built in 1948 at the farm Stolzenfels, which was part of Ababis since 1960. Our farm has wildlife such as gemsbok, springbok, occasional zebra, blesbok, kudu and bat-eared foxes.

Ababis Guest Farm Accommodation

Ababis offers comfortable accommodation in rooms or in the house at the river. Our rooms are all en-suite bathroom with shower, personal toiletries, twin beds, bedside tables with lights, air-conditioning or fan, a small lounge and a wardrobe. Some have a veranda with chairs and table outside and have a view over the pool and gardens. Our house at the river is self-catering with bed space for 5 people. The decoration is sandy neutral tones mixed with bright red, including an interesting brown and orange print duvet.


Activities at the Ababis Guest Farm include hiking trails, the petrified dunes, 4×4 trails for self-drivers and sundowner trips. We have hiking trails down to a dry river, afternoon sundowner and game drive with a booking to the fossil dunes. We offer guided off-road excursions along the fringes of the Ghaub River to Corona Lodge, where guests will have a lunch, and then it carries on to the Gamsberg and Remhoogte Pass. Guests can choose to do mountain biking or sightseeing by air.
