Seeheim Hotel 

An oasis in the Namibian desert and an experience not to be missed - Our child-friendly Seeheim Hotel is located on the road to Lüderitz, a 38 minute drive from Keetmanshoop as well as conveniently close to the Quiver Tree Forest or the Naude Park and offers you superb rustic accommodation. 

Our Accommodation 

Relax in the pool by the thatched Lapa or on the outdoor terrace and enjoy a refresing drink from the hotel bar. Choose between 30 guest rooms, including family units, and dine in our restaurant, providing an à la carte menu, packed lunches or set menus for groups. 

If you would like to celebrate your wedding, a birthday party or any other festivities, we even have the perfect event venue for you.

Our History 

Built from local rock in 1896 to house Schutztruppe (German colonial forces), it was converted into a hotel in the roaring twenties, and became the pivotal place of activities as the town of Seeheim prospered and grew. 

During the 40s and 50s Seeheim was larger and of greater prominence than Keetmanshoop, which is situated 45 km northeast of Seeheim. It had a railway station, several churches and shops, a school, three hotels and a flourishing residential area. Then in the late fifties, the town gradually fell into decline. The school closed down and the residents began to leave. During 1974 the B2 highway was re-directed and the Seeheim Hotel finally shut shop. 

After standing empty for 30 years, Zirkie Kloppers renovated the building and brought it back to life. The handmade furniture, the curtains and other fittings as well as the new outbuildings for additional accommodation have been styled to suite the turn-of-the-century architecture and atmosphere of the original stone building. 

For visitors interested in the historical aspects of the surrounding, there are ruins to explore. Future plans include the restoration of two historical railway dwellings to accommodate groups and families, and the development of camping facilities. 

More activities in the area include hiking and game viewing, for example Oryx which roam freely on our grounds.
