Set in the cheetah capital of the world, Otjiwarongo, The Bush Pillow Guest House offers tranquility, style and comfort.

It is conveniently located to use as a base for visiting the Etosha Game Park, and the Waterberg Plateau.

We are situated 1km from the business hub of Otjiwarongo. It is the ideal location; far enough from the hustle and the bustle to enjoy a peaceful rest but close enough to be at your business meeting or one of the great attractions in minutes.

Facilities and services include fax and WIFI Internet access, babysitting, laundry, secure parking, airport shuttle service, barbeque area, bar, swimming pool, library and fireplace. Pets are permitted by prior arrangement.

The conference centre can cater for groups of between 25-75 people. It offers a complete range of services, inclusive of telephone conferencing, video projectors and multi media equipment.

The Maxamesi Dining Room offers meals (lunch & dinner need to be requested in advance) complemented by fine wines from the bar.


The main interest for tourists is Otjiwarongo's proximity to the Waterberg Plateau Park. Otjiwarongo is home to the Cheetah Conservation Fund, an internationally-recognized organization dedicated to ensuring the long-term survival of the cheetah through research, conservation and education.

Also about 50km from Otjiwarongo is Okonjima, the home of the Africat Foundation, a successful cheetah and leopard rehabilitation centre, with viewing made possible by staying at the adjacent Okonjima Lodge.

On the edge of town is the Crocodile Ranch, one of the few captive breeding programs for the Nile Crocodile that has been registered with CITES. The ranch exports the skins, but sells the meat locally.

Also in town is Locomotive No 41, originally brought from Germany to haul ore between Tsumeb and the port at Swakopmund.
