We were a large group of friends on a 4x4 trip. After 3 days of roughing it in the Desert - Alte Kalkofen lodge felt like heaven. The accommodation is superb - spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and not a detail missed. There was even Peaceful sleep in the room. Frikkie and Hilde are amazing hosts and their food is certainly fine dining in our books.
Would love to visit them again.

Never judge things from the outside. When we first got there it was late and dark and we were a bit concerned, but our minds were blown away 5 minutes after our arrival.
The rooms are simple yet extremely luxurious and the cleanliness, which was our main concern, is of the highest standards.
If that isn't enough, the food homemade by Hilde herself, is exquisite. Frikkie makes sure that everything else runs smoothly, and they both will go the extra mile to please you. Wonderful stay both thumbs up.

What a wonderful experience! Everything is 5-star! From the friendly reception, the excellent dinner and breakfast, the clean white linen, the beautiful sunsets to the shower under the stars. We will definitely re-visit and can recommend to anyone!

Rated the hospitality 100%. Frikkie and Hilde are natural hosts and all their efforts seemed so effortless! The accommodation was very good and exceptionally clean and user friendly. We considered the establishment great value for money.

We came there without knowing what to expect on our road between Luderitz and Fish River Canyon.
What a surprise! The lodge is quiet, beautiful. The food was excellent and the service was efficient.
On top of this, the owners are always keen in helping you and sharing stories about this place!
