Welcome to Otjiseva Farm, owned by the Wiss family since 1927.
Susanne and Hans-Dieter Wiss welcome you to their 9000 hectares Namibia farm.
Our farm Otjiseva is centrally located. The distance to Namibia’s capital Windhoek is only 40 km. The Windhoek International Airport is just 80 km away.
This makes our farm ideal for becoming acclimatised after an exhausting flight. Then start your unforgettable tour of Namibia after a few days at our farm.
We are of course also happy if you come visit us during your round trip or if you come to relax a bit at our place at the end of your trip.
Guests are always welcome.
Our farm is run as an agricultural farm. In addition to a large herd of cattle, there are many other animals on our farm, too.
The farm area is dominated by the Khomas Highlands, which extend over a large part of Otjiseva. The slightly hilly scrubland with wide, sandy, dry rivers, the preferred terrain for our free-running, not fenced-in game, offers numerous spectacular perspectives. Kudu, oryx, warthog, mountain zebras, predators and large herds of springbok are most common.
Otjiseva is a word from the Herero language and roughly translated means “pond village”. This village was situated about 400 m south of the current farm house. The village’s water hole has been of great importance for the large herds of cattle of the Nama and Herero in the past centuries, and later for the ox wagon tracks that ran between the coast and Windhoek. Hans Joachim Wiss bought the farm in 1927. In the beginning, tobacco, maize, potatoes and wheat were planted. Afterwards, they farmed with goats, sheep and cattle. The main income, however, was realised from dairy products, eggs and firewood. Cattle farming has been the main source of income on Otjiseva since the late 1970s.
With us you can experience life on an African farm up close. Families love their holiday with us – it is simply an experience for young and old.
