Elegant, laid-back living located on the banks of the Omaruru River

Kashana is based in a historic building constructed in 1907 as a casino for local mine-workers. It is thought that the house probably gained its name from the surrounding bush savannah which resembled a wide open plain or 'Kashana' in the Owambo language. The years took their toll on the building and after painstaking restoration to its former glory it once again reflects its German colonial heritage and was re-opened in 2007. Today, the building is the centre-piece of a Lodge-style Guesthouse with a novel and attractive bar and a popular all-day à la carte restaurant, frequented not only by residents, but also by passing travellers and local townspeople, all enjoying the tranquil shade of the garden courtyard. The courtyard is skirted by a number of small shops and businesses, including florist, hairdresser, and the innovative Nawa-Nawa Art Centre, providing services for Guests and supporting the local community. Beyond the courtyard, fronting the river, newly built Guest accommodation is to be found. Work also continues discretely elsewhere to expand the scope and facilities of the complex - the most obvious addition being the recently completed swimming pool, terrace and lapa.

Best time to go to Damaraland

Best
Good
Acceptable
You’ll be relieved to hear that the dramatic and glorious Damaraland is a year-long destination! However, the best time to visit is in May through to September, due to animals frequenting waterholes, so you’ll be spoiled with especially rare sightings. If you want Damaraland all to yourself, avoid visiting in July to September when some places can get rather busy. From October to January things can get heated during the day, so come prepared with clothes to stay cool and enough water to hydrate you during your daily experiences!
