We are greeted by our guides Beate Schindler and Christel Engelbrecht at Hosea Kutako International Airport near Windhoek. Depending on the time of arrival, we embark on a city tour of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. Then we travel south to the Krumhuk Guestfarm in the Khomasregion. Krumhuk is a 8000ha large, bio-dynamic farm, where many of the anthroposophical principles are applied. It is both a working farm, as well as a natural paradise, where wild animals roam freely. The guesthouses and workshop space are warm and welcoming, and their delicious home grown produce form part of the meals offered at Krumhuk.
