Askham Chalets

Kalahari hospitality at it's best!


The dream of Askham....

A few years ago we felt the need to get away from the busy city life and sounds and started dreaming of buying property in the quiet of the Kalahari where we would be able to stretch out on the soft Kalahari sands.

In 2010 this dream became a reality when we bought 2 plots in Askham, a town that offers peace, tranquility and a true Kalahari experience.

We relocated to Askham and started building our house.

Once this was finished we started dreaming about our chalets that we wanted to build to afford our guests to also experience this wonderful, peaceful place we now call Home.

We completed our first unit(we call it The Family Unit) in the first half of 2015 and we then started on the second unit which we finished August 2015! This unit we call Erdman.

Erdman is divided in Erdman1 and Erdman2 which are identical units in a single building

In 2016 we completed our Springhaas Unit and the communal braai area.

All the chalets are self-catering - If you do not feel like preparing food, there is a charming local coffee shop in town that caters for breakfasts and other light meals(08h00 - 17h00). Should you wish to braai, there are also several shops that sell meat, liquor and other groceries. We now sell wood on the premises for your convenience.

See the Home page to find more info on the different units and the photos of the sign posts to see what to look out for once you get to Askham.

The cottages are quite secure and fenced in.

Another positive point of our town is that we have no street lights - ideal for star-gazing. If this is your hobby, please bring your gear along and come enjoy our beautiful night-sky.

For the bird-watchers, we've got the ideal space to practice your hobby - bring that gear too, please!

Pets can come along as long as you make prior arrangements!

Also check out our Surrounding Attractions page to see what more our surrounding area has to offer.

Should you wish to give feedback on your stay with us, we would be very interested to hear it - good and bad!


We've just completed the carports so your cars do not have to face the Kalahari sun while you are resting in our cool air-conditioned chalets.
