Welcome to Weaver's Rock Guest Farm

Our guest farm is situated on the cattle farm Hohenfels, which is in possession of the family Duke zu Bentheim Tecklenburg-Rheda since 1903. Duke Richard Friederich bought the farm from the German Colony after he had completed his service in Sumatra, where he had been sent due to connections with the Dutch Royal Family. He named it Hohenfels, “high rock”, for the mountain which guards the homestead. In the year 1904, the Duke, who was widely known and admired for his impeccable good manners, built the farmhouse and the stables which today house the young family with their three boys and our breakfast room respectively.

The cattle farm is still managed by the zu Bentheim family, while the guest farm belongs to Mark and Nadia zu Bentheim and their parents Sabine and Alex Ruegg. Together with the rest of the Weaver’s Rock Team, we want to make your stay a memorable one. Experience life on a farm in Namibia and enjoy the vistas which nature presents to us every day. Come with time, relax and re-energize in the serenity and quietness of our tranquil surrounding. We speak English, German, Afrikaans, Swiss German and a little French, Spanish and Italian.


Team Weaver’s Rock and our special diplomatic envoy of 6 friendly dogs look forward to welcoming you.

We organise and/or facilitate:

  • Weddings, anniversaries, family gatherings, business functions etc
  • Conferences, trainings, seminars (experienced trainer/coach/facilitator available)
  • Language courses, motivational workshops, business communication courses, leadership training etc
  • Teambuilding Events

We organise and accompany you on excursions and trips through our country. A fully equipped Land Rover as well as experienced tour guide awaits you. Please also consult for more information.

Although we try everything possible to ensure your safety, please remember that we live in Africa and we would like to ask you to treat all animals with respect and caution. Please lock your bungalow, bush chalet, vehicle, camper when you do not occupy it. Activities are all at own risk and parents are responsible for their children. Weaver’s Rock does not take responsibility for losses and accidents.

We are a small guest farm and want you to experience life the way we do. Join us on our journey through the daily life in Africa. Please know that there are a lot of animals on the farm. Our dogs are raising our three children with us, so they know. They also have the task to keep our area free of baboons, porcupine and other wild animals which may want to come and have a closer look - but do not get fooled by their hungry looks (the dogs, that is) - we do feed them…

We hope that you enjoy your stay with us as much as we do!

Arive as a guest, leave as friend
