Kupferquelle Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Tsumeb
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 November 2016

The Kupferquelle Resort is a bit of an oasis on a long drive. My family and I live in Angola, and every now and then make a drive to Windhoek. To break things up, we'll stop here and setup our caravan to camp. The sites are nice and clean, have green grass and plenty of shade from large trees. They all have potable water and reliable power for those with caravans, and the bathrooms are perfect for families with small kids. There is also an olympic sized swimming pool for those who want to get some laps in or just relax a bit after a hot day.

I will note that the last 2 times I was camping there in Oct 2016, I noticed that 3 of the campsites seem to have a lot of bees buzzing around. They were really attracted or irritated by the car and caravan. I just moved a few sites away and notified administration of my move.

The onsite Dros restaurant is also a nice place to grab a bite if you're not feeling like cooking on your own. They've got kids menu's as well as a place outside for kids to play at.

They've been under various levels of construction this past year, but I don't feel that any of it has effected the quality and service I've come to expect.

I've never stayed in their rooms, but I would expect them to be just as nice.

Room Tip: If you're camping, try sites 7-10 as they're closer to the bathrooms.

This was not the first visit but every time is a new experience. The camping sites is big and with nice grass with lots of shade. The ablution is nice and clean. New family bathrooms were added to the list now. There is 24 hour security on the premises and it is an safe place to camp.

Very unpleasant due to airconditioner not cooling the room. We were sweating while laying on the and having set the aircon to full. We called the reception who sent the maintenance person but he could not assist.

Grassy pitches with braii, electric and water, plenty of shade under lovely green leafy trees. The ablution block is immaculate - each bathroom has a sink, toilet and shower that is a lockable private room.
Swimming pool is olympic sized and sparking clean, there is a laundry room with machines, a well stocked shop and a restaurant. Plus super fast wifi.
The staff are excellent - friendly, helpful and professional and best of all - there are banded mongoose roaming the grounds.
Only slight negative is some road noise - but there is nothing the resort can do about that and it is quiet at night.
Well worth a visit and stay. Well done Kupferquelle!!

Room Tip: Campsite used only. Have heard guests in rooms say they are excellent.

Lovely spacious rooms, which were clean and comfortable. Nice big shower. The grounds are lovely, with an Olympic pool (which is odd, and perhaps questionable in such a dry area). The main downside to staying here is the Dros, which is associated with this resort. Food is average (although the pizzas were surprisingly good), and the service sloooooow. Even ordering one beer from the bar took ages. However, you don't have to eat dinner here, and I would recommend trying elsewhere.

Some of the rooms are right alongside the main road into Tsumeb - I would avoid those if possible. I stayed in a room that was one row down from the road, and had no complaints about noise.

Room Tip: If possible, avoid rooms right alongside the main road into Tsumeb.
