Little sister to Jack’s and San Camp, Camp Kalahari is a laid back (but no less adventurous) base for your desert experience. Set amongst the palms on Hyena Island, Camp Kalahari is where the action is. It’s not uncommon to sit down at the dinner table while the famous black-maned lions of the Kalahari roar nearby, or to doze off while listening to the sounds of elephants feasting on palm nuts just outside your tent. This traditional bush camp has ten spacious Meru tents with en suite bathrooms, hot and cold running water, and flush toilets. Common areas include a thatched central library; a living and dining area featuring an eclectic mix of original African furniture and textiles, and colonial antiques; and a thatched swimming pool – the perfect place to cool off on a hot afternoon.
But with so much to see and experience you may not even have time to unpack your bag. Whiz across the otherworldly Makgadikgadi Salt Pans on a quad bike. Stand in the middle of this vast nothingness and watch the sun set and the moon rise. Discover the amazing creatures that somehow manage to survive (and thrive) in this incredibly harsh environment. Meet our very own ‘’Kalahari cool cats,’’ our habituated meerkat family who like nothing more than to use our guests as lookout points.
