In the evening we have dinner together. Local dishes, German cuisine, Italian pizzas and barbeque specialties are regular items on the menu.
Pair them with one of the excellent South African wines or a Namibian draught, brewed according to traditional German beer purity requirements. As our bar is fully licensed we are allowed to serve any type of alcoholic beverage.
For the religious and social needs of the staff, a church was built on instruction of the farm's German owner and consecrated by the Bishop of Windhoek. Church services are held on a regular basis.
Guests who would like to attend a service are most welcome to do so.
Next to the church another building was put up. It houses consulting rooms for the travelling "bush doctor", who looks in once a month, and other rooms for social purposes.
