A pleasant haven located about 30 minutes by foot from the city centre, Roof of Africa has a rustic barnyard feel, offering well-designed rooms of varying price and luxury that attract laid-back travellers looking for a quiet retreat from the city. It’s worth shelling out a few more Namib dollars for the luxury rooms, which come with far more space, sink-in-and-smile beds and modern bathrooms; ask to see a few though, as they do vary.
All rooms have a private entrance and a view of the surrounding tropical gardens. Some have a seating area which leads out to a balcony or small terrace.
The thatched-roof, open-air restaurant serves a daily buffet breakfast and an à la carte menu. The adjacent bar has a wide selection of beverages and guests can enjoy watching sport on the flat-screen TV.
Roof of Africa has sauna and solarium facilities available. A 24-hour front desk can provide local tour and car rental information. Massages or other spa requirements can be arranged.
Independence Avenue with restaurants and shops is only a 750-metre walk away. Eros Airport is a 8.7 km drive. An in house airport shuttle is available.
