During the pioneer years, stagecoaches transported post, as well as passengers. Many guesthouses were built along the stage route, where visitors could rest and reflect on their journey. Situated in the small town Askham a unique guest house welcomes visitors with timeless hospitality. The former Askham Post Office was lovingly restored to a haven where visitors are warmly welcomed and can enjoy a comfortable night’s rest in the heart of the Kalahari.
