Oasis in the Desert Kobus Vorster, South Africa

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! Pippa Moll, South Africa

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!

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.

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 Mpho Mmutle, South Africa

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.
If only we could have stayed longer! Joseph Daron, South Africa

After a day travelling from Springbok via the Fish River Canyon, we were exhausted and hoping for a perfect place to unwind...that is exactly what we found. Sadly we arrived after dark so we missed the sunset but the sunrise at the lodge the following morning was spectacular. The room was comfortable with rustic charm and the view of the watering hole was delightful. The hosts made us feel very welcome and shortly after we arrived, we were served a superb meal - the best meal I have had in a long while and certainly the best food I ate whilst in Namibia. Unfortunately, we had to leave early in the morning to continue our travels through Namibia so we didn't get the chance to sample the inviting looking pool. We will have to return again so we can spend more time relaxing at this wonderful lodge.

We really enjoyed our stay. We were spoiled from the moment we arrived. The interior decor is very stylish and artistic. The food was excellent and also prepared and served by the owners themselves. The view from the cottages is stunning. We were even spoiled by hot waterbottles for the beds. I strongly recommend staying over at Alte Kalkofen Lodge.
Great stay CAREN MOSTERT, South Africa

Beautiful, peaceful, amazing place in the middle of nowhere. Great stopover en route Luderitz.
We dined like royalty, compliments to the chef, and enjoyed the peace and quite and clearer-than-clear stargazing.
