Guest Comments

After visiting Namibia for the first time and spending 25 days at 12 different lodges while traveling from Noordoewer / Fish River canyon, Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Uis, Etosha, Tsumeb, Otjiwarongo, Omaruru, Karibib, Windhoek and Grunau; I can truly say that our one day/night stay over at the Alte Kalkoven was one of the best when rated against the parameters of facilities, service, cleaniness, value for money and friendliness. Thank you Frikkie and Hilda!!
