Description in other languages:   German Fort Sesfontein Lodge

The Lodge is situated in the north western part of Namibia, close to the Hoanib river, on the southern side of Kaokoveld. A gab in the mountains gives access to the valley basin on Sesfontein (six fountains), where luch green gardens give the landscape its special oasis character. In 1896, the government of what was then German South-West Africa built the Fort Sesfontein as control point for keeping in check cattle disease, arms smuggling and illegal hunting of big animals. The fort was abandoned in 1914 and only ruins and a small army-cemetery still stood witness to the former German presence in Sesfontein. Fort Sesfontein is the gateway to Kaokoveld, an area of some 50 000km between the Hoanib and Cunene, the frontier river to Angola. In the afternoon you can take part on a scenic drive - untouched landscape structures, such as sandy desert and bizarre rock forms, vegetation and wild animals - elephants, giraffes, zebras. Oryx antelopes, ostriches - can be discovered in their natural habitat beyond the reaches of civilization.
