Eco Awards Namibia
Replete with history and romance, Duwisib Castle is an ideal stopover for visitors’ en route to the South of Namibia. It was built by the German army officer Baron von Wolf for his American bride Jayta in the early 1900s.
Apart from being a gift of love, Duwisib Castle was a dream turned into reality for Baron von Wolf, who had planned on breeding horses in this semi-desert environment. Sadly, he was killed during the First World War. His wife left for America, never to return, leaving the castle and all of its contents and dreams behind.
Accommodation comprises 5 rooms and 10 campsites.
The museum inside Duwisib Castle houses a collection of 18th and 19th century antiques, armour and paintings.
