Namibia erfahren und erfliegen
Franz Reinisch who issued
a CD "titled "Namibia erfahren und erfliegen"
with about 400 photos incl. text,
published by LIS Reinisch reports:
Reinhold Strobel invited
us for a walk with Mäxi (a Pavian) and his dogs
Cora and Puppi and told us his story how he landed
He came as a tourist and saw the sign "For
sale". After his return to Germany (near Pforzheim);
he decided to emigrate, sold all he had and since
that time he's living here together with his wife.
First we planned to continue our trip, but
it was so nice here, that we accepted the invitation,
to stay on the camping site with its 4 beautiful places.
Mr. Strobel then fired the donkey and we could take
a warm bath shower. This is a comfort, you will appreciate
when getting up in the mornig at minus 6° degrees.
all guidebooks our Guestfarm with Guesthouse
is mentioned, so in the wellnown

published by Stefan Loose.
Here is to read the following about our farm:
Otjiwarongo and surroundings – Dinosaurs-tracks
The Dinosaurs-tracks and the farm incl. a
Guest House (B&B) and a Camping site you will
find driving the D2414 in the south of Kalkfeld. For
us it was a stopover on the way from Waterberg back
to Windhoek, and as such it is recommended absolutely.
You may come also as a daytripper, only to
see the Dino-tracks (Mr. Strobel has a lot to tell
you); but a night's lodging we recommend in any case.
The camping site is layed out affectionately, equipped
with good sanitary facilities. Each camping place
has a grill-place and there is a sink extra.
The camping site is situated very scenic and
directly next to the Dino-tracks. We spent there 2
days and nights and so we got to know the farmer and
his wife (German emigrants) - very hospitable people
- Kathrin A. & Bjorn S.
of guest's opinions:
If someone is looking for
privacy and loneliness under the starry sky, is at
the right place here. There are nice guesthouse
with bed & breakfast (and on demand also cooking
The married people Strobel (German emigrants)
speak German and English. The guesthouse and the camping
site have been established pretty well and Mr. + Mrs.
Strobel are very engaged to please the tourists in
everything. Mr. Strobel is well informed about the
Dino-tracks of Namibia and describes all in an enthusiastic
The road signs to the farm is a little bad
and perhaps it could happen that you will be misdirected
by the dominant signs "Dinosaur Camp Site"/Mount
Etjo Safari Lodge
We remember with pleasure
the meeting with a DinoSapiens near Kalkfeld. With
charme and esprit he gave us an understanding of what
has happened millions of years ago at this place.
Once more we want to thank You heartily and we have
intended another visit with spending a little more
time. H-P Gewecke
Meanwhile we safely arrived
back at home. We had a wonderful time in Namibia.
Especially the stay at Yours we enjoyed
very much. Many thanks again for
Your interesting and exciting guide to the dinosaur
tracks. Our photos are pretty well. We wish You and
Your wife furthermore a pleasant time in Your new
adopted country. Perhaps it will lead us back to You
when starting another Namibia-trip. Fam. Morhauser
In November we have
visited You in Namibia. Your farm was one of the last
destinations of our 3-week's Namibia-trip. Up to this
day we have You in pleasant memory (and this not only
because the savoury Kudu-meat we got served by You).
After our return we were so fascinated from Namibia,
that we decided to pass on our experiences unconditionally
to travellers in future. We always can say again and
again, that we really enjoyed our stay at Your farm,
and that we intend to visit You once more, when starting
the second Namibia-trip.
With best regards Kathrin A. & Björn S.
It’s worth, to relax
here for some days and to enjoy the nature, and also
the very open, friendly contact to Mr. and Mrs. Strobel.
This wonderful hospitality is only topped by the delicious
cooking served. Norbert B.
Tracks Guest Farm - Otjihaenamaparero -
The first idea of our self
organized Namibia-trip (my wife and me), to stay only
3 days at the guest farm of family Strobel. But at
the 3rd day we realized, that here - at this silent
place and its beautiful landscape – we could
forget for a while all the hectic and stress as known
in Germany; and so we stayed here for a longer time
Mr. and Mrs. Strobel told us a lot of Namibia,
the people, the Namibian cuisine, and about the joys
but also difficulties when living on a farm. Talking
all about that, we got more experienced than continuing
our travel-plans as intended. Away from the common
touristic areas we have learnt much about the living
on a farm, for example how to deal carefully and economically
with energy*, water and the land (* e.g. cooking meals
like fish or meat using a “sun-stove”
– means utilizing the sun-energy)
The guest farm in deed is a smaller one in Namibia,
but here we realized the nature more intensive as
We took home with us a lot of wonderful memories from
Namibia and Otjihaenamaparero, and may-be we intend
to go there for another time. Ursula u. Harald
Dear Family Strobel,
Surely you will remember the 2 Tyrolese guests who
stayed on the camping-site early Sept. 2007. Sorry
that it took a little longer time as promised, but
now our photo-presentation about our Namibia-trip
and the visit at your farm is ready.
You won’t believe it, how often we talked about
your farm, your Dinosaur’s Tracks and your personal
story to our friends and relatives.
We thought over several times about our visit at your
farm and the given friendly atmosphere, talking about
all and everything.
Par example we enjoyed the evening sitting all around
the open fire and listening to your stories and explanations
with big interest. As enclosure we hand over to you
some photos from the Dino-Tracks, the Farm and the
Kind regards from Patsch near Innsbruck (Austria)

Our trip through South Africa and your new home Namibia

thank you very much for the beautifull holiday and
your hospitality Bodo from Berlin
just wanted to say thanks for making your page http://www.dinosaurstracks.com/links-eng.html
... I've beenon the hunt for some new dinosaur reference
guides for the library, and your page has been a big
help! Here's another resource I've been using with
the kids; they really seem to like it: "Teaching
Kids About Dinosaurs "
Would you mind adding it to your page for me? Our
librarian's daughter (Karyn) was the one who found
it. She's been doing some excellent research. Let
me know if you add it so I can show her!
Have a great weekend! Sarah
Wonderful; so glad I could help! Thank you again for
making such a nice website.. .it's been very useful!
And thanks for including Karyn's suggestion - Keep
up the good work and have a great day. Best, Sarah
thank you very much for your hospitality by my 13th travel-group to Namibia and South Africa. I wish you all the best for 2014 an: see you again!
Kindly regards Your Bodo
When traveling in Namibia you should not miss this place!
You will get a warm welcome from the friendly hosts Adele and Reinhold Strobel.
Adele is a fantastic chef and spoiled us with an excellent dinner. The breakfast offered a huge variety including freshly baked buns, cold meats, cheese and much more.
Reinhold is a competently guide and his knowledge about dinosaurs and history is amazing. We really enjoyed our walk to the tracks, it was stunning!
The accommodation is comfortable and clean - best mattresses on our trip; nothing to complain about.
Many thanks again to Adele and Reinhold for such a great experience! Your establishment is highly recommended.

Thank you Reinhold!
Camping at Dinosaurs Tracks was such a pleasurable experience. I was a little apprehensive when we arrived to find we were the only campers there. But Levi made sure we had plenty of hot water and Reinhold and Bella (His little dog) visited us every evening for a chat about where we had been and where we were going. We spent 2 nights at the campsite. Every site is neatly set out under shade. The Dinosaur Tracks are a short walk from the campsite and well worth viewing.
There is plenty of birdlife and it is a lovely quiet and peaceful setting. (Sep.2014)
Dear Adele and Reinhold,
we are back home in a rainy Netherlands . We would once again like to thank you for your kind hospitality during our stay at your guestfarm.
We were looking for a Guestfarm for a 1 night stopover halfway Kamanjab and Windhoek and found Dinosaur's Tracks Guestfarm on the internet. The place exceeded our expectations! The room was spacious and clean. The surroundings are quiet and beautiful. Dinner and breakfast were more than delicious. Furthermore, the food was perfectly in conformity with our dietary requests, which is remarkable at a place where grocery stores are not close at all. We learned a lot about the geology, nature and history of the farm during a tour to the Dino Tracks guided by Reinhold. He is very enthusiastic and more than willing to share his knowledge with the guests.
In short, we got great value for money. But above all, the kindness and hospitality of the owners is extraordinary. This made our stay at Dinosaur's Tracks Guestfarm unforgettable.
Many thanks Adele & Reinhold!
Kind regards, Otto & Anna (Okt.2014)
