We spent a night at the Guest Farm on the journey from Windhoek to Walvis Bay, for which it was ideal. It meant we had a leisurely day's birdwatching from Windhoek and were able to reach the Spreetshoogte Pass early the next morning. The farm itself is quite isolated and pleasantly quiet. We visited their dam to see what birds were around, but, sadly, the two big dogs accompanied us, chasing off the wildlife. The room was comfortable, if a little twee, had a small bathroom partitioned from one corner and a door wwhich was almost impossible to unlock. At one stage I thought I might have to use the window to get out! There was a set menu for dinner, which was fine withough being very exciting and breakfast was pretty standard. Despite its location, I'm not sure I would want to use this hotel as a base to explore the area.
