About Alte Kalkofen Lodge

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.

The accommodation,food and surroundings were excellent!The only little problem was the air conditioning system,we felt it was not efficient to bring relieve from the heat.So we slept with open doors!Something you cannot do at any place!

What a treat it was to stay at Alte Kalkofen Lodge! The room was so beautifully decorated and we felt that every need was catered for. Dinner was an experience not to be missed with delicious food and exciting sightings at the waterhole (bat-eared foxes and an aardwolf). Hilda and Frikkie are warm and welcoming and take such care in everything they do - we loved it - thank you!

Frikkie and Hilda are such relaxed and welcoming hosts.  It all fits together to be the best place to stay  in the Southern region of Namibia. Highly recommended.Sid and Penny FitzhenrySouth Africa
