Goibib Mountain Lodge
About Us

Goibib Mountain Lodge offers easily accessible accommodation in the Great Karas Mountains in Southern Namibia. Our comfortable rooms, warm hospitality, tasty meals and ideal location between Grunau and Keetmanshoop enable you to experience the very essence of Namibia and its people.

Nestled in the Karas Mountain, with the dry Goibib River ‘running’ through the property, Goibib Mountain Lodge is a tranquil hideaway between Grunau and Keetmanshoop, just off the B1 road between Cape Town and Windhoek.

Bring your camera and capture this pristine environment with a variety of wildlife both great and small as well as a sizable herd of majestic Nguni cattle. From wide-angle landscape shots to close-up, macro-photography, which brings the little things to light, the area is a photographer’s dream. The curious can even explore the nightlife with fluorescent light and discover the nocturnal world around us.

An added bonus is that the southern part of Namibia is malaria-free.

Pristine Wilderness

The south of Namibia is known for its wide-open vistas and seemingly endless bright blue skies, and despite nestling among the Great Karas Mountains, for which the ǁKaras Region takes its name, Goibib Mountain Lodge is no exception.

Farm Experiences

One of Goibib Mountain Lodge’s unique features is that it is located on a working farm, with a breeding herd of Nguni cattle – highly sought after the world over for their unique pelts, where each animal’s colouration and pattern is one-of-a-kind (much like a fingerprint).

An elusive aardwark


Hop into one of our air-conditioned 4×4 vehicles for either a sundowner or sunrise nature drive, while keeping your eyes peeled for the region’s oryx and springbok, or if you’re really lucky even one of the more shy, nocturnal inhabitants such as the aardvark, bat-eared fox, ratel (honey badger), or porcupine.
