Okiep Country Hotel in Okiep

Okiep Country Hotel is a convenient stopover or holiday base for tourists, nature lovers, businessmen, and travellers. Located 100 km from the Namibian border on the N7 in the heart of Namaqualand, the hotel is the ideal stopover between Cape Town and Windhoek.

Malcolm and his friendly staff offer you traditional country hospitality in a modern and elegant setting in the historic town of Okiep, once the site of the richest copper mine in the world. Tours to the surrounding areas are also available on request. All rooms are en-suite, with air-conditioning and DStv.

Okiep is the oldest mining town in South Africa, where copper was first discovered and mined in 1855. A railway line from Okiep to Port Nolloth was built in 1866 for the shipping of copper, and because there was not enough water for the steam engines, the Namaqualand Mule Train was pulled by mules until 1890. In 1918 the Okiep copper mines ceased operating and the place almost became a ghost town. In springtime, Okiep is - like the whole of Namaqualand - very rich in blossoming wild flowers.

We found the room very nice and enjoyed the night we spent there. The staff were also very accommodating when we realised that an amount was still outstanding once we left.
