NATURE AT AREBBUSCH

Quality In A Natural Setting

About Our Natural Environment

Experience Namibia from the start of your journey! 

If you’re one of the thousands of people who stop off in Windhoek on their way to enjoy Namibia’s stunning attractions and thrilling adventures, you can have the best of both worlds.

Arebbusch Travel Lodge offers easy access to all the best things to do in Windhoek thanks to its prime location on the outskirts of the city.

This rest camp is conveniently located close to two of the best Windhoek airports, namely Eros International and Hosea Kutako International. The Lodge is bordered on one side by fields of flora indigenous to Windhoek, with an excellent Windhoek golf course next door.

The Natural Environment of Arebbusch Travel Lodge

The large, fenced property offers 24-hour security, secure parking, and expanses of manicured gardens which ensure ultimate relaxation for all guests within this naturally secluded environment.

The large variety of rooms offer excellent amenities for business and leisure travelers as well as pleasing outlooks over these green spaces. The upmarket safari tents provide wonderful vistas over the natural veld from their private patios and braai areas.

Arebbusch Travel Lodge is intimately aware of the importance of nature both for their business and on the grand scale of things. The management team continuously seeks out new environmentally friendly practices to help preserve Namibia’s fragile ecosystems.

They’ve already implemented a state-of-the-art solar energy system to help reduce their carbon footprint as well as stringent waste management policies to protect the environment.

Thanks to these efforts, Arebbusch Travel Lodge can provide glorious experiences of Namibia’s natural assets within ten minutes of the city conveniences.

Plants at Arebbusch Travel Lodge

As far as possible, the rest camp has implemented indigenous plants into its water-wise landscaping efforts, and a stroll around the garden reveals some of Windhoek’s most iconic plants.

The pool area is surrounded by palms shepherd’s trees, and large cycads. Elsewhere you’ll see beautiful specimens of camel thorn trees and monkey thorn trees dotted around the property.

Relaxed Birdwatching in Windhoek

The rest camp’s a magnet for Windhoek’s wild bird population, attracting multiple species of avians to its lush, manicured gardens and the surrounding veld. In partnership with Arebbusch Travel Lodge, the Namibian Bird Club has documented over 35 species to date, and they’re still counting.

Guests and day visitors alike can stroll among this beautiful environment in search of these indigenous species or enjoy a meal at the restaurant watching the birds flit around the gardens.
You could see some of the following Windhoek bird species during your visit to Arebbusch:

  • Black-chested Prinias
  • Red-billed Spurfowl
  • Rosy-faced Lovebirds
  • Blue Waxbills
  • Greater striped Swallows
  • Southern red Bishops
  • Swallow tailed Bee-eaters
  • Black-faced Waxbills
  • White browed Sparrow-Weavers
  • Cape Wagtails

Avid birders can also arrange for a guided walk on the property, accompanied by a local expert to help them find and identify these birds.

Animal Visitors at Arebbusch

If you’re planning a trip to Etosha National Park after leaving Windhoek, you can exercise your game spotting skills at Arebbusch Travel Lodge too.

Windhoek’s green spaces are home to a surprising array of small mammals, and you might catch a glimpse of some of them during your stay at Arebbusch Travel Lodge. Some of the animals that occur in this area include hedgehogs, mongooses, shrews, hares, squirrels, and rock dassies.

Overnight guests might get lucky and see bushbabies in the trees, spring hares, or even a porcupine bristling through the veld.

There are also several species of snake (mostly harmless) endemic to this area, as well as tortoises and lizards.

The Small Things

Insects are a part of life in Africa and play a vital role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. As such, you might come across a variety of creepy crawlies during your visit to the country.

Windhoek’s a malaria-free area although the occasional mosquito might gate crash your braai or fireside reminiscences. You’re more likely to enjoy colorful displays of butterflies and dragonflies while lounging alongside the pool or relaxing at the restaurant.

Other common six-legged inhabitants of Windhoek include chirpy cicadas, glamorous lace bugs, and various beetles. The perambulations of the local shongololo millipedes are a fascination for children (young and old!).

Embrace Nature at Arebbusch Travel Lodge

Don’t miss out on the chance to explore the best that Windhoek has to offer if you’re flying into Namibia. Rather, spend a few days acclimatizing to the warm, dry weather of the area, relaxing in glorious natural surroundings, and visiting some of the city’s iconic markets, museums, and galleries.
