Midgard Country Estate is the perfect venue for intimate and exclusive weddings.
Today we invite you and your wedding guests to enjoy the tranquility, while marveling at the pioneering German Settler spirit, which gave birth to it all.
“Midgard”, a word found in Old Norse, Middle English and High German languages, has varying meanings, but is popularly thought to mean “A paradise where the earth rises again, fertile and green, creating a protected world and a safe empire for the people”.
It’s an intimate world. One which offers 46 newly decorated and fully equipped rooms, Carl’s Dining Room & Bar, the African Boma, two swimming pools, the Pool Bar & BBQ Terrace, gym and sauna, and a private skittle alley (Kegelbahn).
These are all spaciously situated in a sprawling country garden, bordering the banks of the Swakop River, as it meanders through the estate on its way to the Atlantic Ocean.
Guests are free to soak up the ambience and enjoy doing absolutely nothing; or they can explore hiking and mountain trails, drive along 4x4 tracks, play volley ball, tennis, table tennis, pool or outdoor chess and view our vintage car collection.
One of the estate’s major attractions is a sundowner drive to a hilltop, where guests can enjoy a stunning 360° view over the Otjihavero Mountains and watch the sun set with sundowners in hand.
They can also experience what life was like on a traditional Namibian Farming and Game Estate in years gone by, with a morning or afternoon nature game drive through the separate 2.000 hectare nature reserve, along the Swakop River.
Wildlife found at Midgard includes giraffe, blue and black wildebeest, oryx, kudu, hartebeest, eland, warthog, baboons and smaller antelope species such as the steenbok. The riverfront is a birder’s dream.
