The original building at Kashana was built in 1907 during Namibia's colonial rule under Germany. The main building then served as a casino for the mine workers in the area. Over time the premises was used for different purposes and became more dilapidated until 2007, when its new owners restored the building to its former architectural glory to open Kashana Lodge.
Today that main building houses the restaurant, offering delightful Namibian cuisine, and an inviting bar. Guests ae accommodated in luxurious thatched bungalows where each room either offers a king size bed or two double beds. There are also family rooms, each with two double beds and two single beds. All the bungalows have air conditioning, a mini fridge, a safe as well as television and wifi.
