Activities

If it is your first visit to the area, we recommend that you consider a guided tour to Etosha National Park. This will not only give you an introduction to Etosha and its wildlife that is full of information and fascinating anecdotes, but will also give you an opportunity to sit back and enjoy the scenery while someone else does the driving for a change! You will then be better prepared to tour Etosha on your own the next time.

Our guides have an intimate knowledge of Etosha NP, having themselves lived and worked in Etosha for two years.

However, for those guests looking for a more relaxing stay at Vreugde, we offer short tours of our working cattle and sheep-farm. Or you can take a relaxed walk through the farm's mopane-bushveld as you try to spot some of our indigenous wildlife, such as warthogs, steenbok and kudus, or the great variety of bird-species.
