Tucked away on Brown Hyaena Island on the edge of the vast Makgadikgadi Salt Pans Camp Kalahari is a small traditional safari camp perfect for adventure. Authentically African, interiors are charmingly colonial, with artefacts of yesteryear dotted here and there while traditional fabrics and textures add flair. A family friendly option, Camp Kalahari is a fantastic base for exploring the ancient Makgadikgadi Pans, home to a number of sites of interest, fascinating indigenous people and cheeky habituated meerkats.
There are only 10 large Meru style tents available from the camp, divided between a number of room types. Guests can expect 1 family, 3 double and 6 twin tents. The family tent is comprised of 2 adjacent tents that feature a connected bathroom. All accommodation options feature comfortable four poster beds, unique Moroccan kilims (large rugs) and en-suite bathrooms.
It can get rather hot around camp so a cooling dip in the plunge pool is most welcome. For staying cool during the day and relaxing in-between activities there is a library and lounge area shaded under quaint thatch roofs. The dining room is a gateway to culinary delights with cuisine fresh and original. Any dietary requirements can be provided for.

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