Alte Kalköfen Lodge was envisaged and constructed to firstly conserve fauna and flora in their natural habitat and secondly, to bring the experience of nature to mankind whilst maintaining the ecosystem of the area.
The Lodge itself is set in a beautiful natural African garden where vast open spaces effortlessly combines with the rocky desert 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 offers 10, double or single, bungalows, built on the edge of the Gurib river, overlooking large Camel Thorn trees growing in the river bed. Needless to say, the spectacular surrounds provide inspiring and exceptional sunrise and sunset views from the comfort of your room. All units are equipped with comfortable beds and en-suite bathrooms.
