  • Description
  • Facilities
Alte Kalkofen Lodge is situated 100 km west from the small historical town Keetmanshoop en-route the main tar road to Luderitz in the Southern part of Namibia. The lodge is set in a beautiful natural African garden where vast open spaces effortlessly combine with the rocky desert area.

The lodge itself offers 10 bungalows as well as two rooms in the farm house, all overlooking large camel thorn trees growing in the river bed. The lodge features its own restaurant where breakfast is served daily. The restaurant is also open to guests for light lunches and home-cooked evening meals.

The area is historical, with many museums, and the lodge itself is a testimony to this. The name Alte Kalköfen, is derived from two old lime ovens situated on the farms Simplon and Sandverhaar. Both ovens were built in the early 1900s with the purpose to produce lime that was used for construction and agricultural purposes.

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. Antonello & Family.

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!
