For an authentically unique place to stay, look no further than Alte Kalkfen Lodge. The Old Lime Kiln Lodge is arguably one of Namibia`s best kept secrets.

Situated between Namibian towns of Keetmanshoop and Luderitz, 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. We proudly host the biggest registered collection of Lithops in Namibia.
