Thank you Elsie and Danie for your great hospitality and excellent service. We felt welcome as soon as driving through the gates. The room was very comfortable and perfectly clean with the small touches that makes the difference between staying with a family and being at a fancy chain-group lodge. The food was amazing and staff super friendly. A true...

We could only stay one night, but the hotel is well located, close to the Etosha National Park. The rooms are more or less basic, but the highlights are Else and her husband who gave us an extremely warm welcome and really included us into their little family. The food was simply amazing and true Namibian! Would definitely recommend the...

This guest house has a welcoming family feel. Food is fantastic. Rooms are spacious, clean and gave all the amenities you could need. The farm is well looked after with lush gardens and cozy seating areas. It has a nice pool which is great for a cooling dip midday. The farm itself is nice to walk around as the sunsets,...

Room and facilities were excellent at Vreugde. Very clean facilities, friendly staff and delicious food. All guests had a few drinks together around the fire followed by dinner in an outdoor setting on our first night which was great. I'd highly recommend Vreugde. Its about a 30 minute drive from Anderson Gate (Etosha entrance).

It was a pleasure to welcome you to Vreugde, and we're thrilled that you felt so at home. When I one day learn to speak the local Hei//kom bushman language (!), I will let you know how it is they manage the clicks! We hope to welcome you back again one day.

We had a lovely stay with Elsie, Danie and Rachel. The rooms are not brand new, but functional and very clean. The location and hospitality are wonderful and the food was one of the best we had in Namibia. Thank you again and hope to see you again in the future! We had room 10, which was good for us,...

We were made to feel very welcome the moment we arrived. Very comfortable accommodation and lovely meals. Enjoyable drinks around the fire in the evening chatting with our hosts who were more than happy to share their amazing knowledge. Really felt like guests in their own home. Thoroughly recommend staying here.

What an absolutely delightful family who went out of their way to treat us as valued guests. The meals were genuine local style dishes and all explained to us at each meal. The camaraderie around the outdoor fire at night was so enjoyable and the guests mingled happily with their hosts. The safari tour with Dannie gave us lots of...
