Midgard Country Estate Namibia

“A paradise where the earth rises again, fertile and green.”

Midgard Country Estate is located 85 km (one hour) north-east of Windhoek, and only 70 km from Hosea Kutako International Airport, in the unspoiled Otjihavero Mountains.

An ideal family hide-away, first or last stop for international visitors and the perfect venue for intimate meetings, team-building events or weddings.

Today our guests are invited to enjoy the tranquility, while marveling at the pioneering German Settler spirit which gave birth to it all. “Midgard”, a word found in Old Norse, Middle English and High German languages, has varying meanings, but is popularly thought to mean “A paradise where the earth rises again, fertile and green, creating a protected world and a safe empire for the people”.

It’s an intimate world of its own. One which offers 46 newly decorated and fully equipped rooms, Carl’s Dining Room & Bar, the African Boma, two swimming pools, the Pool Bar & BBQ Terrace, gym and sauna, and private skittle alley (kegelbahn). These are all spaciously situated in a sprawling country garden, bordering the banks of the Swakop River, as it meanders through the estate on its way to the Atlantic Ocean.
