Step back from the reality of the real world by unwinding and relaxing in the tranquil and peaceful environment of Burgsdorf. The garden with all the beautiful trees  and lawn makes this place a real oasis in the middle of nowhere.

The historical old farm house built in German colonial  style, from natural stone dressed and fitted into perfection makes the farm house the center of attention.  Burgsdorf has a rich history dating back to 1899. The name of the farm Burgsdorf comes from the ‘Hauptmann’ Von Burgsdorff who was the commander of the Gibeon district at that time. Burgsdorf served as a police station and a resting place for people on their way traveling south on horseback or ox-wagon.  As it still is today for modern man on self-drives or organized tours.

Hang gliding in Namibia – Burgsdorf is a hang gliders dream

Burgsdorf Farm is a wonderful place for hang gliding. The weather is perfect for flying, as the warm Namib Desert air meet the hot Kalahari Desert on the C14 road which makes it ideal for flying.

Burgsdorf offers an airstrip/pad from all the wind directions to lift the hang gliders into the air by micro lights.

A lovely farm stay with air-conditioned rooms and most important Wi-Fi internet to keep close tabs on the weather.

Three hang glider records have been set here on Burgsdorf. We already hosted two successful hang gliding camps and the next one is from December 2011 till January 2012. The best place to be to reach new heights.
