My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way down to southern Namibia and we loved it. The whole family were so welcoming, we all had dinner together and were even taken on a night time scorpion tour, we also got to look through Axel's telescope to look at the moon. The property is lovely and homely,...

We got this recommendation through a friend who lives since many years in Namibia. To make it short: It turned out as a great recommendation! The lodge is located in a breathtaking landscape, the rooms are spacious, there is a nice pool area, and even a tennis court. Management is excellent and helpful! We had a great dinner and experienced...

The idea to have a stop at Rooisand Desert Ranch on our way back to Windhoek came through a friend who lives in Namibia since many years. To make it short: It was a brilliant idea! A beautiful guest farm inmidst a spectacular landscape (with big rooms, a nice pool area and a tennis court) and an excellent management. Not...

We had a very good time at Rooisand , the hoststess and all staff was very friendly and helpful . The environment beautiful and very relaxing . I feel however it is a bit expensive . For R1200.00 per person it was the most expensive place we stayed, without the option of self-catering .Like Gondwana or Taleni , I think...

We had a very enjoyable night at this property. We were three people so took the villa accommodation which was excellent. The food was delicious, especially the game and the facilities were very clean and comfortable. Well worth a visit!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rooisand! The hospitality of the Dainat family and the team (Julia and Roland) was great. We loved the game drives, sundowners, lunch and dinners (local game) and the kids enjoyed roaming around the lodge and playing with the Dainat children. The pool was cold and refreshing and the atmosphere informal. As the Dainats say:...

We visited this ranch on our journey between Swakopmund and Windhoek for a pitstop and a bite to eat. We were welcomed by friendly staff to a beatiful place. They offered lunch as well as advice for our journey ahead. We wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely return.

this is not about money making. this is about love for the place and giving the guests the best possible reception. Service was very personal and well organized. This is an oasis with excellent service and food. View from the stargazing house was beatiful. Do not drive too fast in the neighbourhood as you can quickly get a flat tyre.
