Camp Kalahari is nestled among the acacias and Mokolwane palms of Brown Hyaena Island, on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans of Botswana. A relaxed, family-friendly traditional safari camp, ideal for those seeking fun and adventure, without sacrificing comfort or style.
The camp is an eclectic mix of original African furniture and textiles paired with traditional campaign style furniture and colonial antiques. Guests can relax in a traditionally built thatch library, living and dining area, and when it heats up, cool off in the plunge pool.
Camp Kalahari has 12 spacious Meru tents – 6 twin tents, 3 double tents and 2 family tent. All 12 traditional safari tents are en-suite and outfitted with rich textiles, Moroccan kilims, and four poster beds.
Visitors at Camp Kalahari can enjoy a range of year round activities during their stay. Get unbelievably up close and personal with a gang of incredibly friendly habituated meerkats. Spend time walking with a group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen for a glimpse into their ancient culture. Go on game drives to experience unique desert wildlife. Visit to Fallen Baobab, campsite of Livingstone & Selous: one of the three largest and oldest trees in Africa.
During the dry season only: go quad biking across the lunar expanse of the pans; lie out on the pans as the sun sets, and watch the planetarium show unfold with horizon-to-horizon stars.
During the wet season only: experience the spectacular migration of zebra and wildebeest – the second biggest in Africa, and the last remaining in Southern Africa.
