Kameelboomkoelte Chalets is situated in the heart of the famous ‘Kalahari Red Dune Route’ of the Southern Kalahari and is the result of a dream created by Erick and Nina Meyer.
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, is a perfect stay over for adventurous travellers, with many interesting attractions nearby.
Kameelboomkoelte offers accommodation in seven fully equipped, self-catering open plan, air-conditioned units/chalets (sleep 24 people) with braai (barbeque) facilities. Cool off in the large sparkling blue pool, soaking up the sun or simply lazing around. Kameelboomkoelte has a wheelchair-friendly Unit (Sleeps only 2) and Diamond T Coffee Shop is within walking distance for meals and curios. All meals can be served on site by arrangement.
We are surrounded by farms where we have permission for guided birding tours on foot or by vehicle. According to SABAP2, 68 birds had been reported in Askham including Lappet-faced and White-backed Vultures, Brown Snake-eagle, Rock Kestrel, Pygmy Falcon, Swallow-tailed Bee-eater, Lark-like Bunting, Black- and White-throated Canaries as well as various Owls and Goshawks.
