Oase Garni Guest House is the ideal stop over from Swakopmund on your way to Opuwo or the Etosha National Park.
Oasis Garni Guest House was the first accommodation establishment in
Kamanjab. The building was originally a grocery and clothing store that
the first owner renovated into a guest house. The Burger family bought
the Oase guest house in 1998.
When staying at Oase Guest House you can visit the Himba Village on the family farm. The two Burger brothers - Jaco and Eben - have been adopted by the Himba tribe more than 14 years ago.
Jaco has adopted more than 28 Himba children from poor and alcoholic families who were unable to provide for them.
Accommodation: Accommodation is in a combination of 10 single, 10 double
and 1 family room. All rooms are ensuite, blankets are provided, air-conditioning,
a fan, a tea & coffee station and an in-room safe.
Facilities at Oase Garni Guest House include a restaurant and bar, lounge, swimming pool and Internet connection. There is a TV in the sitting room.
Activities centre around a trip to a Himba village, situated some 20kms outside of the town. This has to be done by self-drive means, (a map will be provided) and trips will be met by Jaco, who lives in the village. These guided tours give an in-depth insight into the life and ways of the last traditional tribe in Namibia, the Ova-Himba. The Himba Orphan Village Visit: Situated on our family farm, a guided Himba excursion will not only give you an in depth insight into the life and ways of the last nomadic tribe in Namibia, but offer a great photographic opportunity as well. You will learn about the jewellery and hairstyles imitating the status of each tribe member and their close relationship with nature, their cattle and their children.
Income generated from these excursions, supports the day to day existence of the tribe. It helps pay for food, general supplies, medicine, and taking care of the children adopted by owner Jaco from various families who are unable to support them. Books and clothing & uniforms for school, that many people take for granted in their own countries, are provided for these children, by this extra money.
Jaco asks that guests respect the lives and ways of the Himba in their environment, as they would of others. Visitors are helping preserve the culture and traditions of the tribe.
Other areas of interest include a sundowner trip, game drives and a visit
to some rock engravings.
