Local media reported that the expectant parents arrived, along with five other people, including their kids Maddox, 4, and Zahara, 1, in Walvis Bay on Monday. The couple rented all of the rooms at a luxury hotel north of Walvis Bay.
A private firm and local police had secured the area and barred cameras from the premises before the high-profile guests arrived, Namibian media reported.
The couple, whose baby is due in the late spring, have been looking for a place to settle their growing family – including the possibilities of "the Riviera, from Nice to St. Tropez," a source tells PEOPLE.
After spending most of February nesting in a Paris apartment, the power pair moved, for a time, south to a borrowed four-bedroom villa in Provence, known for its privacy.
Jolie, 30, and Pitt, 42, have also spent a good deal of time in Africa, particularly for Jolie's role as a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. She adopted her daughter, Zahara, from Ethiopia last year.
In February, Jolie told PEOPLE she'd be scaling back on charity fieldwork during her pregnancy – but didn't intend to take it easy for long. "I plan to try to travel as soon as I can," she said.
In the meantime, "We're just being a family," said Jolie. "We're gonna do that for a while."
