Camp Kalahari’s 12 Meru-style tents are the perfect base from which you can explore the spectacular Makgadikgadi salt pans and its unique flora and fauna.
One of only three camps in a one-million acre private wildlife reserve, Camp Kalahari feels like a secluded retreat amongst the acacias and mokolwane palms of Brown Hyaena Island. Here relaxation is paramount, and guests can relax with a book in the traditionally-built thatch library or cool off in the large pool.
The camp’s accommodations are designed to reflect the traditional safari experience with stylishly decorated canvas tents, ensuring comfort without compromising the essence of being in the wild. From the private verandas, guests can witness stunning sunsets and gaze upon the seemingly endless horizons of the salt pans.
The huge range of activities cater to the whole family, with thrilling quad bike tours on the pans sure to appeal to thrill-seeking teenagers and the historic Chapman’s baobab tree providing an educational opportunity.
Those looking for a culture fix can spend time walking with the Zu/’hoasi Bushmen, all while observing the unique desert wildlife, from the resident meerkats to the brown hyena and bat eared foxes.
