Shondoro Mountain Retreatis secluded, peaceful and quiet and offers amazing bird watching (170 species recorded to date) here in the malaria free Waterberg. We offer 3 newly renovated stone & thatch cottages each with own private braai-boma. There is a natural swimming pool overlooking the mountains where peace & tranquility will envelope you. It`s a must for the nature lover!

Shondoro Mountain Retreat is a 145 ha bush veld farm that lies in the malaria free Waterberg Mountains (In the Waterberg Biosphere and UNESCO site). The name `Shondoro` is an Owambo (indigenous Namibian language) word meaning "the wild one".

The name was chosen from one of the Afrikaans author, Doc Immelman`s short stories which tells the tale of an orphaned kudu who is reared by an Afrikaans family on a Namibian farm. The significance of the story is very special to the owners as Doc Immelman is the late father & grandfather of the family who owns Shondoro.

Accommodation at Shondoro Mountain Retreat:
There are three newly renovated stone and thatch cottages each with its own fully equipped kitchen. Each cottage has its own private braai boma! The rooms are cozy and cool, warm in winter.

There are complementary tea and coffee trays in each room and the cottages are serviced daily. The linen is luxury and the fluffy white towels reminds you of luxury! Each room has an en-suite bathroom (shower only). (Sleeps 5 in total).

The Redbuck Family cottage consist of 2 bedrooms, one with queen-sized bed and single bed and en-suite bathroom (shower) and the second room has 2 3/4 beds, en-suit bathroom (shower). There is a fully equipped `outside` kitchen & a braai boma.

The Bushbuck and Klipspringer cottages consist of a double and 3/4 bed each in one bedroom with en-suite (shower). The outside kitchens are fully equipped and each cottage has a private braai-boma.

The communal pool area has a braai area and groups can be accommodated here upon special request. We offer mountain biking and walking trails, outstanding bird watching and amazing tree spotting. Guided birding weekends and tree identification courses can be arranged on request.

The surrounding area is rich in history. "The Waterberg Meander route starts here, at the most common entrance to the Waterberg plateau - the Sandrivierspoort, one of only five natural gateways into the hinterland.

Stretching to the west is the iconic view of the "Seven Sisters" one of the most photographed and painted images in the Waterberg. In reality there are many more sisters - buttresses of the Waterberg massif rising from the flat basin outside the southern escarpment. Here the journey of exploration begins. (With recognition to Waterberg biosphere).
