Replete with history and romance, Duwisib Castle is an ideal stopover for visitor’s en route to the south of Namibia.

It is a historical site and a national monument, which is a convenient stopover when traveling from Sesriem and Sossusvlei. German Baron von wolf built the castle for his American bride Ms. Jayta Humphreys in the early 1900s.

Apart from being a gift of love, the castle was dream turned into reality for Baron von Wolf, who planned on breeding racing horses in this semi-desert environment. Unfortunately, his dream was short-lived as he was killed during World War I in Germany.

His wife returned to America, leaving the castle with most of its contents behind. The museum houses a collection of 18th and 19th century antiques, armour and paintings.
