Brief Description Kashana :

"Kashana” is a word from the Owambo language and translates as “wide open plain”. It appears that previous inhabitants have been inspired by the bush savannah that surrounds the country house in choosing this name. Built in 1907 during the German colonial rule, the main building originally served as a casino for mine workers. Over the years it was used for different purposes, but unfortunately it became ever more dilapidated.  The new owners restored the building to its former architectural glory and in August 2007 Kashana Country House was reopened.  The main building now houses the restaurant (incorporating a number of rooms), the kitchen and storage rooms as well as an inviting bar.  Kashana also offers a number of luxurious thatched bungalows and an Art and Craft Centre.  At Kashana guests are accommodated in comfortable bungalows with every room offering either a king-size or two double beds. Family rooms (each with two double and two single beds) are also available.  The bungalows all have air conditioning, a soundproof fridge, a safe and a bidet in the bathroom. Of course television and Internet connection are part of the package.  Although out in nature, one is still close enough to town to be able to sample its attractions such as meeting local artists and craftsmen.  The little town offers attractive souvenir shops and restaurants and mingling with the locals will give the opportunity to obtain a very personal impression of Namibia and its people.
