Weltevrede Guestfarm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 February 2014

We stayed here one night going to Sossusvlei and have some mixed feelings about Weltevrede Guestfarm.
The pro's: the lady is very friendly and helpfull. The food (buffet) was nice and given a lot of attention. As we had to leave early cor Sossusvlei, the gave us a nice breakfast packet.
The cons (but that may be personal): we feld very lonely (being the only guests until around 20.00 hours) and the rooms are a little outdated. The price (1520 Namib$) for two persons, 1 night, halfboard is quite high for what is offered, but maybe this is quite common in this remote area.

On Sunday 19 January 2014 my daughter and her friends were involved in a car accident a few kilometers from Weltevrede. The Swarts family came to their rescue at the scene of the accident, towed the rolled vehicle back to the guest farm and very generously fed, looked after and put up the 5 young women for the night and refused to allow them to pay for their accommodation. What absolute Namibian generosity and hospitality. I am eternally grateful to the Swarts family for taking them under their wing and looking after them until I could come and rescue them the next day. I do hope that those of you reading these reviews will chose Weltevrede as your destination of choice in the Sesriem area as the lodge is really beautiful and the host family totally wonderful.

We stayed at Weltevrede for two nights on our honeymoon in December 2013. The accommodation is clean and unpretentious, and the ambience of the camp relaxed and friendly. Our host, Marletta, was kind and welcoming and keen to help with organizing activities near the camp. The evening meals were delicious, and the pool a welcome relief in the heat of the summer sun. The free WiFi was a much-appreciated added bonus!

The pricing of the camp is extremely competitive compared to others this close to Sossusvlei. For the level of service we received we would definitely stay there again!

After a number of nights in B&B and lodge accommodation, we stayed at Weltevrede Guestfarm on our way north to Windhoek. We had two nights there, and really enjoyed it. Young owner-managers, floodlit borehole with wild life for evening viewing, a slightly longer drive to the Dunes than we had hoped for, but all together this was a very good experience. The chalet accommodation was just fine - a little basic in structure but with all facilities - and the lappa-based drinking and eating was excellent. We were lucky to strike up conversation with a family friend who drove us around the farm, and took us right up to where the Dunes start (on the border of the farm), and regaled us with stories of the family and local living.

Compared with other places the cost seemed a tad higher than one might expect, but then you have to make some allowances for the distances they have to travel to do anything, or get anything, and the farm does seem to be developing slowly, which needs investment!

We will definitely recommend the farm to friends, and we will stay there again. Next time, we will stay longer and undertake some of the local activities OTHER than the red dunes!

We stayed at Weltevrede when visiting Sossusvlei. It is 47km from the main gate to the Sossusvlei Dunes . Marletta was our hostess and she was very friendly helpful and efficient. The accommodation is "rustic" but comfortable and clean. The 4 course dinner served was fantastic with good home cooking style food. I would definitely return if in the area.

All accommodation in the Sesriem area is expensive so you have to compare what is provided to you, as I have paid the same price to stay at the Hilton as I did to stay here at Weltevrede Guestfarm. That said, it was good value for money for Namibia. The sunset is spectacular and you do not have to leave your veranda for this. The food was very good, and the host was amazing, very helpful and friendly staff. An honesty bar which is well stocked, and they arrange a picnic basket for you if you need to leave early.

My only complaint is the decor is in desperate need of a makeover and bring your own pillows if you can.

If you looking for a clean, friendly honest place this is the place to stay and I would stay there again.

This is a very unique place with BB and self catering unit which we hired. a very spacious place with all basic amenities and clean and nice rooms. Location is good , they serve delicious food.location is not far away ( about 45 minutes ) from the main gate to Sossusvlei dunes.the owners are very very helpful and very well decorated bar and the best part is that the bar is self service, you pick up what u want from well stocked bar and put money when you check out at the bar counter or in your room.very safe place too.
