Teufelskrallen Tented Lodge

Stare in amazement at breathtaking Kalahari views of reddened sand dunes and camel thorn trees from the large observation platforms at Teufelskrallen Tented Lodge. This unforgettable location at the edge of the Kalahari Desert has access to the desert through a private game reserve with over 10,000 game-rich acres.

Be welcomed to the lodge at Restaurant Altes Farmhaus, which serves as the lobby and gathering point for many on-site amenities. Breakfast and dinner are served daily at the old farmhouse, located in a shady garden oasis two miles from the tented accommodations. Take a dip in the refreshing pool and order a cool drink to enjoy beneath the numerous shade trees.

Strong stilts support each of the three luxury Tent Houses of Teufelskrallen Tented Lodge. Linked by a wooden boardwalk, each tented accommodation boasts spacious rooms, comfortable furniture, private bath, fridge, mini-bar, and large observation platform opening to impressive vistas. Cabin Tents offer the same amenities with a more rustic and intimate setting. On a clear night, gaze through your window at a spectacular African starscape, a favorite memory of many guests of Teufelskrallen.

Open 4x4 vehicles offer spectacular views of the desert and diverse wildlife. Grab your binoculars and camera to capture some of the many wildlife species in their pristine natural environment. Animals roam freely and include black wildebeest, blue wildebeest, giraffe, eland, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, plains zebra, nyala, impala, springbok, blesbok, red hartebeest, oryx, kudu, steenbok, porcupine, pangolin, aardvark, warthog, ostrich, as well as many common small animals and waterbirds during the rainy season. Game drives and sundown drives offer glimpses of these spectacular game species, while hikes are a more intimate way of viewing some of the area’s most memorable wildlife. Guided and unguided theme hikes range from three to twelve miles on well-marked and well-maintained hiking trails. Encounters with such a diversity of wildlife are sure to be a hallmark of your unforgettable stay at Teufelskrallen Tented Lodge.
