Alte Kalköfen Lodge

Description in other languages:   Alte Kalkofen Lodge

The lodge is named Alte Kalköfen, that was derived from two old lime ovens situated on the farms Simplon and Sandverhaar. The older oven was built in the middle 1800s and the newer oven in 1910 with the purpose to produce lime that was used for construction and agricultural purpose. Alte Kalköfen is situated on a plot inside the farm Sandverhaar. The Lodge is an interesting combination of modern architecture, it’s environment and decorative remainders from the “past”...

The Lodge itself is set in a beautiful natural African garden where vast open spaces effortlessly combines with the rocky dessert area, Acacias and fascinating wildlife creating different "venues" to visit and experience on a daily basis.
The old farmhouse on the Simplon Farm has been restored to serve as the Lodge Reception Area and Restaurant. Delicious breakfasts, light lunches and home cooked evening meals are served throughout the day. We are fully licensed and open to the public and for functions. Join us for a cup of coffee at sunrise or a sundowner at sunset and experience the absolute silence and breathtaking views from the restaurant veranda.

Alte Kalköfen Lodge proudly hosts the biggest collection of Lithops in Namibia.
