Sesfontein is a small settlement in the Kunene region and derives its name from the six fountains which have their source here.

Fort Sesfontein Lodge is probably the most well-known landmark in the area and was originally erected in 1896 as a police checkpoint, after engagement with the local communities, to control cattle disease, smuggling and illegal hunting of elephants and rhinos.

In 1914 the fort was abandoned and fell into disrepair,only ruins remained of these early conservation efforts. In the 1990’s repairs started to the property and the rebuild was kept true to the history of the area and the building.

Today comfortable accommodation and an excellent bar and restaurant service is available to up to 44 guests. Located in an arid area between Damaraland and Kaokoveld it offers an oasis with the palm trees offering welcome shade and an enormous pool.

Travel through time and uncover the unique history of our fort. From a German colonial-era outpost to a modern lodge dedicated to conservation.
