A FARM IN
The farm ‘Okosongomingo’, on which the Waterberg Guest Farm is located, has been in the Schneider-Waterberg family since 1909. Your host, Harry Schneider-Waterberg, is a third generation German Namibian, carrying on the family tradition.
Over the century of its existence the farm Okosongomingo has seen various operational practices. Today it is still a fully operational cattle farm breeding Santa Gertrudis, a cattle breed originating from Texas and imported by Harry’s dad to Namibia in the late 60s, which has proven itself as hardy and extremely well adapted to Namibia’s dry climate. In the past the farm has also gained a reputation for its breeding of Arab horses.
