We invite you to have a drink in our garden while watching the Springbok graze on the grass.

The name “Hammerstein” was given to the farm by the German Survey company in colonial times.

Hammerstein started with Swakara (Karakul) farming and in 1992 the lodge was built. We started as a small guest house with only 5 rooms, at the moment we’ve expanded to 56 rooms. The lodge is owned by the Porteus family, Anton and Gerty, their son Matthew and daughter Henreza.
