The San Camp is situated on the edge of the Nwetwe Pan in Botswana’s Makgadikgadi. An amazing exploring experience awaits travellers to this desert region of Southern Africa. This safari camp runs on solar-power and during the evenings and nights lanterns are scattered around to lighten the way making for an amazingly romantic atmosphere.


The San Camp features Luxury Camps made out of canvas. San Camp’s tents provide breathtaking 360 degree views over the salt pans. Comfortable four-poster beds which are draped in crisp cotton and feather-soft blankets make for a most comfortable setting. Exclusive wooden desks and leather armchairs complete the ambiance of the rugged surroundings. The en-suite bathrooms offer hot, running water showers and flush loos.


Guests enjoy safari drives and night drives in the 4x4 vehicle to explore the unique desert wildlife. Travellers have the chance to spend time with the meerkats and also join the local Bushmen on a bush walk. Another highlight is a quad bike ride across the salt-crusted earth.
