Farm Katjapia

The Farm Katjapia is situated in the central highlands of Namibia, 120 km from the capital city Windhoek and 55 km from the small town Okahandja.

Farm Katjapia is a cozy and small guest house, a typical African farm with extensive beef farming.
The farm consists of 6000 hectares of savannah and other vegetation, divided into a number of camps, each with its own characteristics. The two big rivers coursing through the farm occasionally run heavily in the summer months, but for most of the year they are dry. The sandy river beds are an interesting route on horseback, by foot or by vehicle.

For years, small groups of visitors to Farm Katjapia, have been introduced to a unique experience in the fields of guided hunting, wildlife watching and cattle ranching.
