THE NEED FOR BEER MONEY

by written on May 8, 2008


The Cardboard Box is a classic Backpacker place that claims to have been started in 1992 in order to get some beer money. Fair enough. They are the oldest such establishment here in Windhoek and they provide a range of services. They can accommodate 45 people inside and 12 in tents (w/mattress) outside and spaces for 20 other campers. They have a bar and restaurant which always serves game meat. Outside they have a swimming pool and braai area. They offer 24 hour reception and very secure car parking. Back inside they have internet/phone/fax facilities, laundry, self-catering kitchen and travel information. They can also arrange anything from car hire to hotels elsewhere to full blown safaris.

Directions: The Cardboard Box, 15 Johann Albrecht Street, Windhoek West, Namibia
