It is with great pleasure that IJG announces the launch of “IJG Trails”. Effective 1 January 2016 IJG is the title sponsor of Farm Windhoek and will have all naming rights to the Farm. Farm Windhoek is located along the Auas Mountains, just south of Windhoek. It provides for outdoor activities for the whole family, with over 70 kilometers of trails suitable for Mountain Biking, Hiking, Trail Running, Dog Walking and Bird Watching.
Mark Späth, Group Managing Director of the IJG Group of Companies, said that this is an ideal opportunity for IJG to give back and invest in our community by making recreational areas such as Farm Windhoek safer and more accessible to the Windhoek community. This investment is part of IJG’s social contribution to make the livelihoods of Windhoek’s residents and visitors to the capital better off.
Peter van der Merwe, owner of Farm Windhoek, said that the sponsorship has come at the perfect time with the primary focus being on safety of its daily adventurers. We are very excited that IJG have seen the opportunity that lies in Farm Windhoek. In addition the sponsorship has resulted in our 2016 packages being unchanged from 2015.

About Farm Windhoek
Windhoek Townlands Commonage 2, also known as ‘Farm Windhoek’, forms part of municipal townlands of the City of Windhoek. The Farm is currently leased as farm-land. However, being situated adjacent to residential areas, it is increasingly used for recreational activities by the residents of Windhoek even though the majority of users do not have official permission from the leaseholder.
‘Farm Windhoek Adventure Tourism cc’ has been created for Farm Windhoek to facilitate the management of the control of movement on the farm in such a way to ensure responsible and sustainable use for both the visitors as well as the farming enterprise.
