leaf icon 3.9 Sustainability Rating

10 ha farm resting peacefully at the foot of the Aus Mountains

The attractive and airy rooms are built in a style indicative of the late century farmhouse and painted a deep, rich sienna that glows alluringly in the late afternoon sunshine. Put up feet on your veranda enjoying Klein Aus calm, relax at the pool side, design in a unique horse shoe shape For the active ones: partake in the scenic drives or explore the numerous mountain-bike and walking trails traversing the rocky hills. En-route you will discover WWI ramparts, and an old Hudson motorcar riddled with bullet holes from an almost-forgotten shoot-out with diamond smugglers, viewpoints with extraordinary vistas, springbok and oryx on the plains and, if lucky, klipspringer poised on the rocky slopes. For a day excursion visit the wild horses at the Garub waterhole, 20km to the west, and the old diamond mining town of Kolmanskop and Lüderitz, 100km away. Return in the afternoon to Klein Aus peace. Relax with sundowners on the restaurant veranda or wooden deck watching the sun disappearing behind the mountain slopes, before enjoying a 3-course meal in the restaurant. Exchange travel experiences and recommendations at the Wild Horse Bar or at the cosy fireplace in the lounge before returning to your room for a good night's sleep and the anticipation of a new day
