Kameelboomkoelte self catering chalets situated in Askham, in the heart of the famous 'Kalahari Red Dune Route' of the Southern Kalahari is the result of a dream created by Erick and Nina Meyer. Construction of their dream project turning it into reality began in January 2017.
In the tiny, friendly town of Askham which is 180km North of Upington and 75km South of the Twee Rivieren Main gate of Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park which is a perfect stay over for adventurous travelers, with many interesting attractions nearby, is where it all began.
Nina grew up in Askham and is a true child of the Kalahari. After spending many years in Pretoria, she has returned to her roots, having a deep affinity with the desert and its intriguing uniqueness. Her extensive knowledge of the area, and ability to create a beautiful home to spoil her guests, is the welcoming feeling that shines through.
Erick, being involved in construction for many years, and has for as long as he can remember had a love for carpentry, has been hands on in all aspects of building this project, including the making of all the exclusive wooden furniture.
Fully equipped, and decorated with flair, Nina and Erick have thought of every detail to ensure a home from home stay. Each of the seven chalets are carefully placed for privacy with a central pool and large fire pit for braaing dinner and visiting under the big open sky. All the chalets have the same layout and except one of the chalets have a wheelchair friendly shower and toilet.
Between these two energetic and passionate people, they have created a beautiful, comfortable oasis of luxury for guests to enjoy in true Kalahari style.
Comfort and authentic desert décor ensure that visitors have an unforgettable visit to this wild place on the planet that is so special to them.
We are very pleased to announce that Kameelboomkoelte is graded 4 Stars by the Tourism Grading Council of Southern Africa.
