Weltevrede Guest Farm is situated in the heart of the Namib Desert, 300 kilometres South west of Windhoek, on the C19 Road between Solitaire & Sesriem and bordered on three sides by the Namib Naukluft Park. The Swarts family welcomes our guests to a warm, friendly, family operated Guest Farm. Our guest numbers are limited to ensure a very personalised service. With the name “Weltevrede” meaning “very satisfied” we aim to ensure that your experience, being at one with nature in an eco-friendly environment, is one of contentment.

Our Family, Staff and Community. All our staff members, with their respective families have been living on the farm for several years. The staff and their families receive continued experiential and skills development training ( like cooking, tourism, decorating, clothes making, knitting, human relations, etc.) and support in the education of their children. We are actively involved in supporting the communities police, health and conservations services.
