Camp Kalahari is situated on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in The Kalahari Desert region of Botswana. It was previously called Makgadikgadi Camp, but has since changed its name and is currently being rebuilt and refurbished, due to re-open on 15th April 2009! It is adjacent to the Makgadikgadi National Park, sheltered under acacia and palm trees on Hyaena islanda, providing a great value for money option in the Kalahari.
Accommodation consists of 6 luxury tents, with decadent king size beds, en suite outdoor bathrooms, flush toilets (a luxury in these parts!) and the best showers in the Kalahari. The new tents will have thatch roofs and large verandas with swing beds for whiling the days away. In addition, there will be a thatched library and lounge, where you can read about the history of this region and relax around a roaring fire. And the dining area will serve sumptuous cuisine to mark the end of another fascinating day in the Kalahari desert.
An array of game activities!
Kalahari Camp harkens back to a time when safaris were simple, and the animals, not the people, were the main attraction. Forget about having designer toiletries in your room and embrace the African bush! Head out on game drives in the morning and evening, with lion, leopard, hyena, cheetah and even wild dog competing for plains game and a collection of mammals. And you can track animals with a local San guide, learning the techniques of Africa's famous hunter-gatherers. The lodge is on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans, once a super lake which is covered with breeding flamingos in the wet season (November to April) and great herds of zebra and wildebeest, and of course their associated predators!
