Coming from the kilometer long access road you really feel like arriving in an oasis. Really green with 3 cheetahs, an ostrich and more animals beloning to the place. The food was amazing and the staff is very lovely and friendly. The cheetahs are fed every evening and this is amazing to watch. We definitely recommend this place to everyone.

We had an amazing stay at Burgsdorf Guest Farm! We stayed as a couple for one night to celebrate my husbands birthday. During the animal feeding we had a chat with the lovely manager Sanita, who gave us valuable information about the farms rescue animals. We told her about my husbands birthday and she managed to arrange a last minute birthday cake for him during dinner. We really appreciated it! The rooms and dinner were also great! Thank you Sanita & team for making our stay memorable! We will be back :)

Staying at Burgsdorf Guest Farm was an exceptional experience. There is a very big probability to see very rear animals (that we even could not see in Etosha). During our road trip in Namibia, we have been accomodated in 13 locations and Burgsdorf was for us absolute number 1! The rooms are absolutely amazing, great view, nice and clean. If you have the possibility, go for the deluxe room, it is worth it. The staff is so friendly and Anita is just great. She has offered to bake for us a cake when we mentioned we would like to have one. And the pool and it's area is wonderful. The food is great. We have felt welcome and so nicely treated. This location is definitely recommendable 😊
P.S. The beds are totally comfortable.

We stopped over for one night only, but we could have stayed another one! When we came, there was only another couple, so we got an upgrade of room, which was a very nice surprise. There is a nice swimming pool to relax in, and they have two rhinos and a few cheetah on the farm, which we observed from our terrasse. The dinner and breakfast were really excellent. We recommend this guest farm warmly!

Away from the beaten track.. actually well away. When navigation software says you have arrived, additional 10 km journey into vast Namibian landscape awaits you to get there.

Very charming guest farm with nice and helpful owner and staff, pleasant familiar service. The rooms are a bit rustic and frequented by mosquitoes, but repellants are available. Surrounding landscape is beautiful. It is a farm, no stores and restaurants nearby so you will be having dinner at the farm. Delicious dinner.

Stayed there for 2 nights, the place is a gem off the beaten track. You can spend your time exploring the surrounding area, head south towards Lüderitz and soak in the landscapes, or just chill at the farm. The animals in the farm is an icing on the cake.

About 2 hours drive to Soussusvlei, we left at sunrise and arrived at the dunes around 9.30.

Beautiful location with exceptional wildlife and great home made food. We met a friendly Springboek and got really close to one of the cheetahs that visit the farm and then goes back to the wilderness. The new rooms are luxurious, with a river dam in front of the private porches that provides a personal view of the animals as they drink. The grounds are huge and the friendly staff offer game drives too.

A true example of eco tourism, the farm is located in an old German police station from the colonial era and has been transformed into a wildlife sanctuary, with rescue animals visiting for nourishment and care, affording guests a unique experience.

Another Namibian gem. We stayed for three nights, and it was absolutely wonderful. Granted we where upgraded to one of the chalets overlooking the game farm. The effort the owners spend on protecting endangered animals is commendable. The rooms are well equipped, clean and spacious with WiFi at the lodge. The food was prepared by Dalene who also manages this lodge. The food was excellent, with friendly and professional service, a nice fire place, good wine, well what more do you want.

Never managed to get into the gate. Arrived at the scheduled time - after managed a very poor (deep sand) drive from the road from Maltahohe - at the gate. Despite 20 mins of trying, the intercom was not answered and I was forced to leave again. Those who know the area realise that this is not a good thing - the nearest lodge is at least 70 kms away - with darkness and gravel roads, this is stressful. Several attempts to call the Farm on all the numbers they listed (by myself and locals who tried to assist) also failed. Emails to the Farm have as of yet been unanswered. Booking.com, who made the booking, has been in touch. For this reason I am unable to recommend this facility. I am sure it is nice but this experience is not good and given the lay of the land, should be avoided at all cost.

We stopped at this guest house and very surprised.
The cleanliness, beautiful set in, the service and most of all nature at its best.
We highly recommend Burgsdorf as it is value for money and a great stop over for either a day or two days..
