Camp Kalahari

★ ★ ★ ★
US $960.00

The Camp Kalahari in the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in Botswana has a lunar landscape, but in the Summer months which is from December to March, it is transformed into great sheets of water, which attract a spectacular array of water birds and trigger dramatic migrations of wildebeest and zebra.

Nestled among the palms and acacias on Hyena Island, the camp, is situated on the edge of the famous salt pans and adjacent to the Makgadikgadi National Park, which provides a perfect base to explore this unique and changing region of Botswana in Southern Africa.

Traditionally built using local artisans and their knowledge, the lodge offers a unique and relaxing environment, combining Western comforts with the flair and colours of the African continent.

The central complex of the camp Kalahari consists of a thatched library, a comfortable lounge and dining area, allowing one to relax and savour the serenity and peace of this charming area. In the heat of the day, guests are invited to relax or to take a dip in the plunge pool.

Quick facts about camp:

Each season in the Makgadikgadi area has its particular beauty. During the summer when the rain has arrived the pans come to live, the birds and vegetation blossom and the unique migration can be observed.

During the winter months, the pans dry up which is the reason for the migration. The desert animals remain in this area. During the day, guests have the opportunity to explore the pans, either by vehicle or by bike to visit the archaeological sites of stone age tools or just to see infinity and the curve of the earth.

In both seasons night drives are a fascinating opportunity to see shy nocturnal desert species, while during the day, one can visit historical sites such as Chapmans and Greens Baobab.
