We camped there for an evening: two adults and three boys under ten years old. The gruff hostess was no non-sense. I would not come here with kids to stay in a room: pins and needles. We did not eat in the "restaurant" because there were too many guests and they didn't think they could serve us. The pool was... More

Not worth the money at all. People not friendly at all. Poor facilities, dirty, best of all the host replied that the fee of R2400 included breakfast, but when we arrived we were told the deduction from safari now made it not profitable to give us breakfast. As we didn't had the confirmation email with us and no WiFi available... More

A farm -hotel located near the Gamsberg pass , rooms and dinner very correct, also it has the advantage that the owner is an astronomer , so if you like this activity you will be in one of the best places to do it !

It's definitely a place that is not to be judged by first impressions!! Campsites are well positioned with each one having an uninterrupted view of the Gamsberg mountain area as well as being a good distance apart from each other. Ablutions are neat and spacious. Campsite also have a shelter big enough to pitch a small tent or to sit... More

After over 12 months of extensive travel throughout Namibia over the past 4 years, this is sadly our first terrible encounter with a hospitality business professional, which I feel needs to be reported here for the sake of other visitors' awareness. Not to mention that the campsite facilities provided by the farm are one of the very worst that we've... More

They are pleasant enough people,but at the price(about $160 US/night per couple)it was below par in many respects,especially considering the trek.They hype the stargazing,so be sure of the weather,and be aware it is charged seperately-kind of petty on their part,IMO.

Hakos guest farm is an interesting place for those who like adventures like me. It has wonderful mountain view, the meals are so good and reasonably enough. The only problem with the owner or the lady managing the house treat guest as children in her house, she is also a racist, I understand most of the reviews were good probably... More

Stayed for one fabulous night with some amazing stargazing. Middle of nowhere, clear skies. Beautiful house with indoor pool and library. Basic, nice and clean accommodation with good dinner and breakfast.

We went to Hakos to have a very first time experience of stargazing. The farm is on a convenient 135 km drive from Windhoek and it is easy to find - just go C26 and find the road to Hakos a few kilometres before the Gamsberg pass. Don't expect a traditional luxurious farm. This is much more homely. Rooms are... More

Well we didn't actually stay here, but broke down and got towed here. What I can vouch for is the fantastically generous hospitality we were offered by the family when we arrived. They welcomed us (smelly, unwashed after bush camping for several days) even though they we closed for christmas holiday and having their own family celebration. We were made... More

“camping spots are on an exposed hill; the shower facilities were decent. There was water at each campsite but no electricity.”

“Because of the stargazing the farm is kept dark. Bring a torch to find your way between the rooms and the dinner room.”
