Catch a chartered flight from the Okavango Delta to spend the next three nights in the heart of the Kalahari. Camp Kalahari sits amongst the acacias and palms on an Island, on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. Here Danny will take you on a thrilling photographic adventure. The desert culture, lunar-like salt pans, baobab silhouettes, desert sunrises & sunsets, unique wild creatures, stillness and star filled nights, make for an incredible picture-perfect setting.
As a photographer, the Okavango Delta and Makgadikgadi Pans should be on your bucket list. This is a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with your camera in these iconic and wild places.
And you couldn’t be in better hands.
Laidback and understated, nothing is overly elaborate at Camp Kalahari. Instead, you’ll find 12, Meru-style canvas tents filled with fresh textiles, Moroccan kilims and funky four-posters. Shower alfresco in the open-air, ensuite bathrooms (there’s definitely no one around to disturb your privacy here!), and there’s plenty of hot and cold water available throughout the day. If you’re travelling with your brood, choose one of the interconnecting family tents; with a bathroom linking the space for children and adults, it’s ideal for families and groups.
The common areas include a central library and a living and dining area, festooned with an eclectic mix of original African furniture and colonial antiques. Meals are refreshingly simple and wonderfully tasty, and served, family-style, at the long table. There’s also a thatched swimming pool, providing the perfect place for a refreshing dip on a hot afternoon – just watch out for the ellies who might pop in for a quick drink too. We’ve kept our use of electricity to a minimum too; there are electrical lights in the bedrooms, but when night falls, the majority of camp is lit by twinkling paraffin lanterns (but camera batteries and other appliances can be charged in the safari vehicles when required).
