Tucked away on Brown Hyaena Island on the edge of the vast Makgadikgadi Salt Pans Camp Kalahari is laidback and understated. It is one of only 3 camps in a one million-acre private wildlife reserve.
There are only 12 large Meru style tents filled with fresh textiles, Moroccan kilims and funky four-posters. Shower alfresco in the open-air, ensuite bathrooms. The common areas include a library and a living and dining area, decorated with an eclectic mix of original African furniture and colonial antiques. Meals are simple and tasty, and served, family-style, at the long table. There's also a thatched swimming pool, providing the perfect place for a refreshing dip on a hot afternoon - just watch out for the elephants who might pop in for a quick drink too.
Light aircraft transfers from Maun.
Cultural interaction, greeting the camp's habituated meerkats, visits to one of the oldest baobabs in Africa and game drives. During the green season witness the great migration and during the dry season quad bike over the pans.

The camp is very nice, whilst simple, providing all the comforts you need, lovely hot showers, comfortable beds and…
