Makalani Hotel

The Makalani Hotel is situated in the centre of Tsumeb, within walking distance from travel agencies, banks, museum, post-office and shopping centres. This is the perfect area for day trips to the museum, arts and crafts centre, cultural village, Lake Otjikoto, Hoba Meteorite, Ghaub Caves, Lake Guinas and a trip to the Etosha National Park can be arranged. We are a proud member of NTB (Namibian Tourism Board) and HAN (Hospitality Association of Namibia).

We have a sparkling pool for the afternoon chill and relax on hot sunny days. Guests can have a beer at our beer garden, or enjoy our free Wi-Fi service around the lodge. In the main building, we have a bar and restaurant. For dinner, we have the thatched dining room with bar and big screen TV, an indoor braai and upper seating level. The hosts can also cater for any occasion – weddings, conferences, parties, seminars, etc.

Our accommodation includes 28 double or family rooms. Most rooms have a balcony, where visitors can enjoy a meal or enjoy the view over the beer garden or front entrance. Each room has a 7-channel TV, air-conditioning, telephone, 220v plug sockets and en-suite bathroom. Baby cots can be arranged with reception. Our Honeymoon Suite is more than luxurious.

The Lapa at Makalani Hotel is famous for its casual and tourist visitors. Upstairs is a full bouquet satellite big screen TV for those sports fans not wanting to miss out on a game or to catch up on international news. Try your luck in our Gambling House. Play a game of pool on our pool tables with the cheerful atmosphere at our casino.

Activities include self-drive tours in and around the Tsumeb Museum, Hoba Meteorite, Otjikoto Lake and the Tsumeb Mineral Gallery. Close-by is a golf course, just walking distance from Tsumeb, as well as a shooting range operated by the German shooting club.

Makalani Hotel is an ideal place to plan a conference of a wedding ceremony. It takes up to 40 people in the big hall, while the smaller hall takes up to 16 people. Our conference facilities include a projector, white board, tea/coffee facilities in the morning and afternoons. Brunch and dinner need to be arranged early in advance.
