Oasis in the Desert - Only 10 free-standing chalets. Not exactly luxurious, but certainly very acceptable: clean and comfortable. Pity there is no air conditioning. The restaurant alone is enough reason to visit - really excellent.

An absolute highlight! - We loved the stylish decor, the wonderfully comfortable beds and the delicious food. The location is beautiful, with starry skies at night, and deep peaceful silence. The hospitality was first class.
We will be back, and stay for longer!

A little gem in the desert - What a wonderful interesting place to stay in Namibia. Accommodation and food excellent and the hosts could not have been friendlier or more helpful, even helped organize a spare tyre for our car without any fuss. The best Gemsbok steak I have ever tasted. The swim in the swimming dam was a real treat. Loved watching all the animals at the waterhole all through the night. So sorry we only spent one night. My husband had a wonderful mountain biking experience. We feel Alta Kalkofen is undersold. We will be back for sure.

Stay at Alte Kalkofen - This was an excellent experience - we thought we have a self catering unit, fortunately we did not bought food. A small fridge in the room might be a good idea for cooldrink and cold water.

Wonderful place - We had a wonderful at the lodge. Frik and Hilda run an exceptional entity and they give it their all. I hope the standards set will continue to grow.
