Situated on an immense pan, Kalahari Plains lies in a remote corner of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, a place famed for vast herds of antelope followed by abundant predators – including legendary black-maned Kalahari lions and feisty honey badgers.
It also offers some of the best summer wildlife viewing in Africa. Game drives unlock wildlife treasures while respectful San Bushman experiences provide insights into a unique culture.
Eight canvas units (including one family unit) each include a sleep-out rooftop platform from which to enjoy the night skies. The camp, including its main area with pool and deck, takes in the sweeping, spacious views across the Kalahari. Solar power provides electricity and hot water, and innovative insulated canvas walls and roofs keep the temperatures inside comfortable.
In keeping with Wilderness’ objectives of using technologies and techniques towards reducing energy consumption and fuel use, and other resource-use reductions, Kalahari Plains is run on 100% solar power, and uses an ancient yet effective water harvesting technique.
