Camp Kalahari

Camp Kalahari

Camp Kalahari is set amongst the acacias and Mokolwane palms of Brown Hyaena Island, on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, adjacent to the Makgadikgadi-Nxai Pans National Park.

Accommodation is in 10 spacious Meru tents consisting of 6 Twin tents, 3 Double tents and 1 Family tent. All tents have en suite outdoor bathrooms, flush loos, hot and cold running water, comfortable beds, and blankets and hot water bottles in winter.

The guides at Camp Kalahari team up with a small group of Zu/'hoasi Bushmen to guide guests on morning walks and game drives. Venturing far into the centre of the Makgadikgadi, on quad bikes, guests are able to explore remote archaeological sites, periodically discovering never before documented fossil beds of extinct giant zebra and hippo. The fact that one can travel across the pans at great speed and still arrive nowhere only underlines their immensity.

A safari at Camp Kalahari is also a complete desert experience focusing on species unique to the area such as aardvark, gemsbuck and springbuck. It is the only place where guests are virtually guaranteed to see the rare and elusive brown hyaena and be able to walk through the Kalahari with a gang of habituated but wild meerkats.

The camp has teamed up with David Foot to create a fantastic five-night horse-riding safari, combining Camp Kalahari with two nights fly camping out on the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. Now visitors can explore this wild, unspoilt area in the same way many of the earliest explorers, hunters and missionaries did – on horseback.
