Namibia's ghost house near Windhoek

This large delapidated building is visible from the road but can not be visited by members of the public as it is a private property. The Liebig House is a reminder of the early colonial history of Namibia. The house was originally built in 1912-13 to accommodate the farm managers of the Karl Liebig Company, specialised in cattle breeding. The Liebig Company owned most of the commercial farming land in the Kuiseb River basin upper catchment and was formed in 1907 by the Deutsche Farmgesellschaft of South-West Africa. Liebig Co bought large areas of land on a nationwide scale - in order to establish a cattle farming and meat processing industry in the country. In 1939, the South African Government bought the land from the Liebig Company. It is not clear when the house was finally abandoned and what is its current fate, some sources suggest it was in 1955.
The large windows of the house provide beautiful panoramic views across the veld, whilst a deep rocky river gorge bisected by an old dam can be found a short walk away from the house.
