The flight from Europe is about 9 000 km. A non-stop flight takes about 9 ½ hours. The international
airport (there is only one) lies near Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. From there it takes about another
four hours by car to Swakopmund.
It is possible to fly by small craft to Swakopmund or Walvis Bay.
We are geared to pick you up from any of the mentioned airports if so requested, or we can arrange for
a private plane for you. (Tariffs on request.)
We shall gladly reserve a hired vehicle for you if you so prefer and it will be ready and waiting
for you at any of the mentioned airports.(Tariffs on request.)
To guide you more easily to Swakopmund and Richthofen manor house we display a small map.
You take the route from the Windhoek airport, which is situated some 40 km to the east of Windhoek, to
that city and from there you follow the road signs to Okahandja and Swakopmund. From Windhoek to
Okahandja the distance is 70 km. From there you carry on towards Karibib, about 110 km. From there
to Usakos it is about 30 km and then the last 145 km through the unique Namib desert on the fringe
of which lies Richthofen manor. 10 km before you reach Swakopmund you turn left onto the D 1901
and follow that for another 8 km on a well-made gravel surface where you will find Richthofen manor
on the right side of the road. We are looking forward to your visit.
Its situation on the fringe of the famous "moon landscape" makes it an ideal place to relax and unwind.
The leisure activities we can offer include:
Deep-see fishing and boating
Quadbiking on the dunes and in the dry river bed
Golf on the 18-hole course in the desert, from lovely greens
Sky diving, single or tandem
Round trip pleasure/scenic flights (Sossusvley and Skeleton Coast, the Ovahimbas and many more)
Safaris for hunting the unique fauna of Namibia by camera or arms
Guided day tours by means of 4x4s in and around Swakopmund (Seal colony desert tours Spitzkoppe with its
spectacular rock art and minerals. These are only a few of the offers made by local tour organisers.)
Sand boarding on the most spectacular dunes of the Namib.
And many other possibilities
We shall gladly assist you in planning and preparing your trip in Namibia and do bookings for you all
over the country (Hotels, Lodges and Farms)
For visitors who know the sight well and who would like to store their vehicles safely and secure on
a more permanent base, we offer storage facilities. We also arrange for your vehicle to be waiting for
your arrival at any given airport of your choice (tariffs on request).
