Camp Kalahari

Camp Kalahari

Situated in an oasis of acacia and palms known as Hyaena Island, Camp Kalahari provides unique style and comfort in the heart of Botswana’s remote Kalahari Desert. The camp lies adjacent to the barren Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, an ancient super lake that dried long ago, leaving behind a vast emptiness. However, the outer reaches of the pan spring to life each year as the summer rains revive seasonal lakes and lush grasslands. The sudden explosion of flora attracts wildlife and wildfowl on a scale of rare proportions.

During all times of the year, Camp Kalahari takes full advantage of this unique paradise. The ten resident tents are in the Meru style and are classically appointed with comfortable beds and en-suite facilities. The camp is especially welcoming to families as it offers twin, double, and family suites. The common areas include a large thatched library, lounge, and dining area.

During the wet season, this region of Africa provides almost unparalleled game viewing as herds of innumerable zebra and wildebeest migrate to the Makgadikgadi’s expansive plains, followed closely by the big predators. As the waters dry up and the animals disperse, Camp Kalahari offers outdoor adventures the truly unique experience of racing across the saltpans on quad bikes. Native bushmen instruct guests how to survive in the harsh environment, and guests can interact with the local habituated meerkat population.
