Reviewed 10 September 2009

Terra Africa is a remarkable place. We have stayed in many places in Windhoek, including, at one end of the price scale, the Windhoek Country Club and at the other end, Backpackers Unite. Hands down, Terra Africa is the best. Not at all expensive, but with all of the amenities, comfort, and beauty one can expect. Rolf is the nicest...

Dear Moorhen, Thank you for your feedback. We always value both pro- and con's as this can only be beneficial for the future. Regretably the same factors that has made Guesthouse Terra Africa a smashing success may sometimes be to our detriment, in that as our house was originally designed as a family house, so we have smaller rooms, largers...

on the hills, overlooking Windhuek, just opposite the presidential grounds. Very nice staff, very nice garden - just a little bit too close to a busy street. But nevertheless a perfect place to stay.

We visited Terra Africa at the beginning of our trip and came back at the end. The hosts are wonderful, friendly, funny and very relaxed. Very entertaining. Very nice, big quiet clean rooms. Several areas to relax. Good breakfast. The best B&B we had in Namibia. Highly recommended.

We spent four nights at Terra Africa. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. Rolf came out to greet us with welcome drinks and knew exactly who we were, took us to our comfortable rooms and invited us to settle in before coming out for a coffee in the garden. The place feels inviting, the rooms are private and...

I stayed at Guesthouse Terra Africa for 2 nights in June 2008. It was between 2 trips, the 1st being a 10 day camping trip in Southern Namibia. From the moment I arrived (hot, dusty and tired!!)

This place has enough good points, but I think tripadvisor travellers should hesitate before making it their first choice. Windhoek is a strange city. It is really just a base from which to use Namibia's excellent road network to explore the country's stunning landscape. In fact, much the same could probably be said of most of Namibia's urban areas. The...
