Vastrap Guest Farm

The Farm

The word Vastrap can be translated as a foothold or stepping stone - which is exactly what this guest farm offers its weary travelers. Half way between Keetmanshoop and the border to South Africa, Vastrap is the ideal place to stop over and relax in its tranquil environment.

This majestic 6,000 hectare sheep farm near the small town of Grünau in the far South of Namibia has been in the family since 1942.

Grünau is a tiny settlement with only ONE fuel station and no shops, so supplies cannot be easily found here. However, we at VASTRAP can supply you with fresh or frozen meat for your trip through Namibia or to South Africa.
On offer:
Pork and Lamb
(As some preparation is required, please order all meat one week prior to your arrival at Vastrap.)

Visit us for a relaxing and quiet environment in which you can unwind and recharge for your trip ahead. We are looking forward to welcoming you in our lovely country!
