Alte Kalköfen Lodge itself is set in a beautiful natural Namibian desert garden where vast open spaces combine effortlessly with the rocky desert. The lodge is located halfway between Keetmanshoop (99 km) and Aus (120 km) and is restored from an old farmhouse. It’s perfectly manicured, yet with rustic charm around every corner waiting to be discovered. The “Sundowner Corner” and the “Reading Corner” bring smiles to guests' faces and the bi-weekly passing train is a pleasant reminder of the old historic trade routes.
Luxurious beds and imaginative decor await you with En-suite bathrooms and both indoor and outdoor showers. Witness spectacular views over the desert river bed from the comfort of your very own terrace. At dusk, keep an eye on the floodlit waterhole which attracts oryx and springbuck as they refresh themselves from the Namibian dust.
Alte Kalköfen is perfect for weddings and functions! Honeymooners too, are made extremely welcome and love the tranquility and romance offered by our picturesque location.
For an authentically unique place to stay, look no further than Alte Kalköfen. The “Old Lime Kiln” Lodge is arguably one of Namibia’s best kept secrets! Situated between Namibian towns of Keetmanshoop and Lüderitz, the lodge is the perfect central base for planning trips to surrounding attractions like the famous Fish River Canyon. Rich flora also calls all intrepid botanists (and novice onlookers alike), to come and marvel at the natural beauty of this region. The lodge is well known for its fascinating collection of Lithops (Cole Lithoparium), also known as “flowering stones”.
