Experience the capital of the Kalahari


While Ghanzi’s location in the north-western part of Botswana has made a stopover point for travellers on their way to and from Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta and Moremi Region, the so-called capital of the The Kalahari Desert boasts an array of natural attractions and comfortable lodgings that will leave passers-by wishing they had stayed just that little bit longer.

The gently sloping water-absorbent sandveld that characterises Ghanzi’s surrounding landscape hosts to a number of lodges and camps. Visitors can spot wildlife from the deck of Edo’s Camp that surrounds a rocky waterhole, enjoy sunset and evening game-drives, or learn more about the camp’s conservation efforts to reintroduce rhinos into the area.

Motswiri Lodge gives guests the option to self-drive across their 30,000-hectare game farm, encouraging guests to always be on the look-out for predators such as leopard, cheetah, and hyena or the more docile (but no less impressive) black wildebeest and giraffe to name a few. Otherwise, visitors can enjoy guided bushman walks and star-gazing activities from the local San. The Thakadu Bush Camp promises an authentic and budget-friendly breakaway. Bird and buck are often present at the pan that the camp overlooks while horse-trails and game drives are easily arranged.
