Free Air Guest House, established in 2002, has already established a reputation with visitors from far and wide for being the place to visit for an unforgettable vacation. Our guests come from all over the world to enjoy their holidays at
Free Air Guest House on Walvis Bay's Lagoon.
The Lagoon is a RAMSAR site and indeed the most important coastal wetland in southern Africa. It is home to a large numbers of resident species and way station for African and Palaearctic migrant birds. It is also famous for its thousands of Lesser and Greater Flamingo, and has been listed by RAMSAR as a natural heritage site. The Southern African Birding Society says: “Although there are many rare and special species, it's the sheer number and diversity, especially of visiting migrants, that is a major attraction.”
Walvis Bay offers a range of activities to enjoy even if you are not an avid bird watcher and even if you don’t just want to while your time away, reading or napping. The city is fast becoming Namibia’s adventure capital while at the same time striving very conscientiously to sustainably manage its biodiversity and care for our sensitive environment. Thus you can also enjoy an action-packed Walvis Bay holiday, on the water, kayaking, wind and kite surfing or sailing, watching dolphins and seals, going fishing; or on land, quad biking or taking 4x4 trips into the Namib desert, sand boarding down the dunes, angling from the shore, or taking a leisurely stroll on a paved walkway around our famous lagoon, enjoying what is quickly becoming a rarity in many places: truly clean air, as crisp and pristine as it comes. And if it's souvenir shopping you have in mind, there are two indigenous craft markets just footsteps from our front door.
After such a hard day’s entertainment, which you probably started by partaking in
Free Air’s hearty breakfast, you can unwind on our open deck, watch the African sun set over the vast Atlantic Ocean or have the customary “sundowner” in our sheltered lounge and bar where you might just meet somebody interesting from the other side of the world, from Sweden or Chile, from Japan or Costa Rica.
Dinner is served at one of three restaurants within walking distance of Free Air Guest
House. If you want to venture further afield, the restaurants in town are only a five minute drive away.
Whatever your needs may be, our friendly staff will assist you and will do their best to ensure that you have a fabulous time at
Free Air Guest House!
