Day 1: Windhoek – Ondekaramba

The farm Ondekaremba measures 7.300 hectares and boasts a 100-year old family tradition. Shortly after touching down you will be met by the peace and quiet of Africa’s wide-open spaces. Enjoy after a long flight the charm of scenery and unspoilt nature. Ondekaremba means: The place where grazing is good. Thanks to this, combined with numerous watering places, you can be at one with nature by exploring, be it via game drives, hiking trails on a terrain where there are an abundance of wildlife and birds. The lovely garden with landscaped pool area waits for you to come and have a swim, or to just relax. Meals made to a large extent of our own products are prepared in our farm kitchen and are served on the open-air verandas, as a picnic in the bush, or inside the old rustic stone farmhouse.

The town had received its name, Twyfelfontein, referring to the spring itself. The area is in a Pro-Namib region and this can be seen through the prominent geographic features as well as the Fauna and Flora.

These indentions were created over a course of thousands of years. The oldest engravings can be as old as 10 000 years and the creation of new works probably ended by the arrival of pastoral tribes. Additionally, the site contains rock paintings. The similar occurrence of rock paintings and rock engravings is very rare.
