Neuras Website

Neuras Wine & Wildlife Estate

Neuras is a 14,500 hectare oasis in the desert and boasts natural fresh water fountains and lush palm trees.

It is here that we produce our spectacular Neuras wines in one of the driest vineyards in the world. We also provide a range of accommodation and activity options for guests.

Neuras Website

In the local Koikoi language, Neuras means the “place of abandoned water”. In fact, the crystal clear cold-water springs at Neuras date back to 1894.

Neuras is set among stunning scenery including ancient canyons, caves, fascinating geological formations and natural fountains. Furthermore, it is a unique research site and is home to one of N/a’an ku sê’s carnivore research programmes. It is here that you will also find one of only three wineries in Namibia.

We welcome volunteers as well as day visitors and overnight guests, and offer activities such as wine tasting, cheetah feeding, hiking and wildlife tracking.

Accommodation

At Neuras we offer economy accommodation in stone built en-suite chalets. There is a swimming pool for cool dips after a hot day in the desert and visitors can also enjoy sundowners in our stone-built bar and restaurant. Furthermore, guests can enjoy short walks along the dry river bed or to the springs.

We offer a dinner, bed and breakfast option, and provide delicious home cooked Namibian meals. Alternatively, guests are welcome to cater for themselves using our guest braai set.

The economy accommodation at Neuras provides guests with a comfortable and environmentally friendly way to enjoy the desert. However, guests can also stop by to try our wines on their way to and from Sesriem, roughly 80km away.

Activities

Activities at Neuras are ideal for wildlife enthusiasts, geologists, hikers and wine connoisseurs. The lodge and surrounding area is also a haven for those looking to get away from it all and absorb the stunning landscapes and natural surroundings. Both day visitors and overnight guests can enjoy our varied activities. These include wine tasting and vineyard tours, as well as wildlife tours, among others.

Cheetah feeding

Neuras is also home to seven beautiful cheetahs who were rescued from human-carnivore conflict situations, and who sadly cannot be released into the wild due to human habituation. These big cats live in an enormous 50 hectare enclosure on the Neuras reserve and enjoy the wildest life possible. We therefore provide guests the opportunity to experience a cheetah feed. This normally takes place during the afternoons but we can be flexible, especially if you book in advance. The price is N$ 350 per person, N$ 265 per person for groups of 10 people or more.

Wine Tour and Tasting

We offer a full wine tour and tasting which takes you through the vineyard, cellar and fountains and it includes the tasting with a cheese platter. This costs N$315 per person, N$235 for groups of 10 people or more.

Volunteering at Neuras

As a volunteer at Neuras you will actively participate in our conservation efforts. This includes getting involved in our efforts to restore the land to its original beauty, track wild carnivores and research free-roaming wildlife. Furthermore, at the right time of the year you can even help out in our vineyard (and enjoy a glass or two of course!).

Neuras research and conservation projects include our human-carnivore conflict research project and spotted hyena research project.
