Fort Sesfontein Lodge
The lodge FORT SESFONTEIN was rebuilt out of the ruins of a historical Monument from the year 1896.
The district KAOKOVELD in those days needed a checkpoint to control cattle disease, smuggling and illegal hunting on elephants and rhinos and the Schutztruppe agreed to help the local population, the Namas, Hereros, Damaras and Bushman.
The Fort was abandoned in 1914 and only ruins showed this early sign of wild life- and nature conservation.
Today comfortable accommodation and excellent bar and restaurant service is available to up to 44 guests.
Located in an arid area between Damaraland and Kaokoveld it however offers an Oasis with the palm tree courtyard and the enormous pool.
The whole year day trips in open or closed 4x4 jeeps take place, where you can discover African wild life in free range with desert-adapted elephants, rhinos and lions, visit Himba tribes in their villages or see old rock carvings at Sosos showing wild life from over 1000 years ago.
