Bahnhof Hotel in AUS Namibia.  It was a bit like going back to the 1970's . I heard recently that the hotel was sold and  it has all been modernised to cater for the German tourists. Pity.

3 Goats Brewery in Nieu Bethesda

The owner brews all his own beer from water that flows from the Sneeuberg Mountain Range.

Highly recommend the Karoo Honey Ale, the BEST beer I have ever tasted & the insane setting just adds that extra touch!

The owner also makes his own goats cheeses.
Insane!

Have just returned from a "sortie" through Namibia and thought that "Joes" pub was a real experience although we only popped in to have a look around I think that place will really rock when busy!
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)
