The trains at Midgard Country Estate aren’t the kind that chug across the country.

Once, perhaps, they trundled over the land, passing desert and ocean. Elderly cogs in Namibia’s rail history which spans more than 100 years beginning with a 383km line from Swakopmund to Windhoek before crisscrossing across the country.

Whether it be for a camping trip, team-building outing, family fiesta, romantic getaway, or even a business get-together, the newly refurbished train carriage accommodation at the Midgard Country Estate (MCE) promises to present a one-of-a-kind experience to its guests.

Launched with a fresh, vibrant and exciting look-n-feel this past month, guests to the launch event described the facility – which is an addition to the current Midgard offering – as the perfect fun getaway and group weekend spot. The big bonfire cornerstone in the centre of all three carriages, serves for the perfect ambiance that adds a significant spark to the experience, in addition to the priceless childhood memories that come to life, for those that have had the privilege of train rides back in the day.

Trains, planes and automobiles

Ok, so Midgard Country Estate does not showcase planes, but we do boast automobiles and now, even trains.

Yes, trains, not mobile, but stationary trains that have been converted with much love and a lot of attention, from our interior designer, into fully equipped, self-catering units.

The staff are busy getting the trains ready for the next generation of adventure seeking guests. New self-catering kitchens and a dining room are in the making. The ablution blocks have been transformed to pamper each guest with a hot shower and beautiful functional finishes.
