That Place In Southern Namibia Called Seeheim!

Every overland visitor to Namibia will find on their maps a place marked Seeheim. It features quite prominently in the area north of the Fish River Canyon and on my first trip I much anticipated a stop here.

What I discovered was this hotel, gas pump, a few guest rooms and a fantastically characterful bar. It was 45°C outside and the staff prepared Greek salads (greens from where?? we’re in a desert?) and sandwiches and let us cool off in the cement pool before we continued on our way.

The dot on the map may have created an anticipation for more, but the hospitality, isolation and true unique experience of a visit to Seeheim leaves me wanting to make that circle bigger …

The bums of these two springbok have been rigged to act as pourers of spirits in the Seehiem Hotel Bar. Too cool – but would you drink it?
