Welcome at the Rooisand Desert Ranch. We invite You to have a short virtual tour around our lodge

  Activities and services of the ranch at a glance
Rooisand Desert Ranch is situated on the fringe of the Namib Desert in Namibia's Central Region, at the C 26 between the mountain passes of Gamsberg and Kuiseb, halfway between Windhoek (170 km) and Walvis Bay on the Atlantic coast (190 km).

The farm has a size of some 12.000 ha, a huge area - by European standards. Surrounded by the magnificent scenery of red sand dunes - deposited in distant times
by winds from the Kalahari Desert - vast grasslands and rugged mountains, Rooisand Desert Ranch affords its guests a relaxing sojourn with every convenience.
Gamsberg, 2.347 m high and dubbed Namibia's Table Mountain is seen as Rooisand's very "own" mountain.

Guest accommodation, the main building with the kitchen and farm management quarters, the technical buildings, the pool and the tennis courts are all located in the central farm area.
Pool, Lapa und Bar.

The Lapa: during the day Rooisand's dining room alfresco with local and international cuisine, in the evening bar and our guests' meeting place.

In the old farmhouse we offer our guests a homely living room with a small library - at cold evenings with a cosy fire in the open fireplace.

The farm's technical equipment is kept far enough away from the guest accommodation as not to disturb your stay.

Cell phone is working good. Internet is (slow) possible, a standard MTC USB stick is nessacary.
Our Rooisand Team lives in its own little village close to the main farm buildings.

For the religious and social needs of the staff a church was built on instruction of the farm's German owner and consecrated by the Bishop of Windhoek. Church services are held on a regular basis.
Guests who would like to attend a service are most welcome to do so.

Next to the church another building was put up. It houses consulting rooms for the travelling "bush doctor", who looks in once a month, and other rooms for social purposes.
