Hammerstein Lodge, on wild cat walk

When traveling in the South of  Namibia on your way to Sossus, Sesriem or Naukluft Mountains, pay a visit to Hammerstein Lodge. Situated on the C19 , nestled between the Nubib and Tsaris mountains, only 60km from Sesriem.

You have a choice of accommodation, ranging from  Selfcatering bungalows , Camping or Lodging with dinner, bed and breakfast.

A few kilometers from the Lodge, rocky outcrops of massive granite boulders conjure up visions of a giant’s playground. It is from one of these boulders – an enormous rock shaped like a hammer – that “Hammerstein”, the German name of the farm, was derived.

The main attraction on Hammerstein is the opportunity to meet some Caracals, Cheetahs and the famous Leopard, Lisa, raised by the family. The Guides are experienced and very friendly, telling you the story of each cat.  You can get up close and personal to some of the cats, hear them purring ,snarling and growling.

The Lodge is close to the road, so even if you are on a tight schedule, plan your visit to include the Wild Cat Walk and enjoy lunch in the beautiful garden or restaurant. Cold Beers, amongst others are served at the Bar and the big swimming-pool are always inviting in the desert heat. The Springboks grazing around the lodge, so used to everyday visitors, they wouldn’t mind you.

Enjoy a Scenic Nature Drive, experience the beautiful mountains and grasslands.

Reception can assist you with other activities, eg. balloon safaris and flights over the famous Sossusvlei desert.

Owned by the Porteus family, involved in management, they will make sure you have a lovely time at Hammerstein.
