Askham Chalets

Kalahari hospitality at it's best!


General Info

Askham Chalets consists of 3 seperate chalets (5 units sleeping 14 people) - The Family Unit, Erdman Unit and Springhaas Unit.
We are currently planning the Mossienes Unit, which will comprise of 6 units with separate rooms for our single visitors.

There is a private braai (with a built-in light) and fold-open bench/table on the decks of all units from where you can enjoy breathtaking sunrises and splendid sunsets. Braai grids are supplied.

We now sell wood for your convenience, no need to bring that along anymore. If you are on your way to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and need to take water along, bring your empty containers with and fill them up for free at Askham Chalets. Our (Borehole) water is delicious and clean.

Bedding, towels and toilet paper are supplied.

Bring your own food and beverages and toiletries.

The premises is fenced in with 1,8 m palisades and gates, which are locked at night, and next to each unit we've built carports so you will be able to park your car securely and out of the sun. These carports are high enough to accommodate vehicles fitted with roofracks and rooftop tents.

All bedrooms contain an air-conditioner and a heating panel.
