The lodge Fort Sesfontein – located in a wilderness area far from civilization – offers all modern facilities which guests may expect today. You will enjoy luxury with historical background. The central court of the lodge is planted with palm trees and has a generous pool. The former officer’s mess has been refurbished as a restaurant with integrated lodge and bar.
In 1896 the government of what was then German South-West Africa built Fort Sesfontein (six fountains) as a checkpoint for keeping in check cattle disease, illegal hunting and arms smuggling.
The Fort was abandoned in 1914 and only ruins and a small army cemetery still stood witness to the former presence of troops in Sesfontein.
The Fort offers comfortable double bedrooms and family units, all including bathroom/WC, for up to 44 persons. 25 local staff members are employed and do their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
The place offers a pleasant atmosphere with hot dry days and cool nights. After the adventures of the day and the culinary delights of the evening, you will enjoy a relaxing night below the Southern Cross and a fascinating star-studded sky. Fort Sesfontein is an oasis in the Namibian wilderness.
