About Vreugde Guest Farm

The meaning of the word “Vreugde” is joy, and that is what we strive to offer on our guest farm in Namibia

Vreugde Guest Farm, Namibia, is a small, friendly, family-run business. It’s a much-loved place to stay, renowned for great food and hospitality, all served up on a real Namibian working cattle farm.

Vreugde Guest Farm is situated in the heart of Namibia, just 30 minutes’ drive from the Etosha National Park’s Anderson Gate. It’s a perfect stop-over for couples, small groups or families alike, as it offers comfortable and affordable accommodation.

We have a large, lush garden offering you plenty of places to sit in the sun or in the shade. The farm also has an inviting swimming pool for you to cool off after a long day driving.

We offer activities including guided Etosha tours, as well as farm drives / sundowners, and walks around the farm.

Meet your hosts

Husband-and-wife team Danie and Rachel Brand run Vreudge Guest Farm. Danie’s mother began the guest farm in 2001, and still plays an important part, with Danie and Rachel running the business since 2015.

Danie is a fifth-generation Afrikaans-speaking Namibian, who met his British wife Rachel while they were both students in Etosha National Park. They’re both passionate about wildlife, with excellent knowledge of Etosha and its flora and fauna.

The farm has been in the family for nearly 100 years, and has always been a cattle or sheep farm. It’s now home to three generations of the Brand family, along with three families of employees.
