Deep in The Kalahari Desert, along the parallel lines of red dunes and in the grassy valleys between them, is a unique and fascinating wilderness that simply must be experienced. Intu Africa Game Lodge is a large private reserve that supports an astonishing array – for such an apparently arid realm – of wildlife, birds, and plants and offers rare interaction with the San community of hunter-gatherers who live in the area.
Intu Africa Game Lodge offers a choice of four accommodation options: Dune Lodge, Zebra Lodge, Camelthorn Lodge, and Suricate Tented Camp. All have en suite bathrooms; the three lodges have air conditioned chalets and the tents in Suricate have lounge areas and secluded open-air showers. The living areas comprise swimming pools, sun decks, lounges, bars, and restaurants. They all share the same spectacular Kalahari views and those unforgettable sunsets.
Ancient ways of the San
Activities at all of the lodges include day and night game drives into the Kalahari, scenic drives, and walking safaris. Wildlife includes leopard, cheetah, lion, giraffe, oryx, blue wildebeest, zebra, springbok, jackals, suricates, and over 200 species of bird.The highlight of your stay will be the early morning tracking with the !Kung Bushmen who will tell you all about the natural world that they and their ancestors have lived in for centuries. The community has also built a tourist village – away from their home village – where they take delight in showing you their customs, rituals, and simple way of life.
