Great camp, staff and food. This was our favourite camp for the welcoming staff, food and drinks. It was a beautiful location and we hope to return here one day! The staff also went out of their way to celebrate our anniversary which was lovely.

My comments regarding the other two camps apply equally to Kalahari Plains. The semi desert terrain and the different animals, flora and fauna made a nice contrast to the other two camps. The trouble that the staff went to to provide a"picnic" lunch with tables, chairs and all the accessories near Deception Vally (about a 3 hour drive from the camp) was an added bonus as was the "Bushman Walk" Alex the Manager (from Zimbabwe)was very friendly and helpful as were all the staff and our guide Fanie was an extremely knowledgeable and formidable charachter. Top viewing experiences included: lionesses with their cubs. an enormous herd of probably 1000 Springbok on the move; seeing a black maned Kalahari Lion walking to a water hole in front of the camp while we were having breakfast. And of course seeing the special animals of the Kalahari: hundreds of Oryx, Steenbok, Black Backed Jacals etc. Also a distant sighting of two Red Haartebeeste. The green grass of the Kalahari after the rain almost looked like Ireland! Some of the desert flowers especilaly the lillies were spectacular

Amazing and quite different from the other two. Nothing was too much trouble and the room service was quite outstanding. Well above the call of duty to make up the bed and tidy the room during the morning drive on last day, even though check out was not until 11 am. Sleeping under the stars was such a special experience. Alex, the relief manager had such a lovely relaxed style, while still helming a very tight ship. I felt very safe at all times, despite being in such a remote location.

A classic camp, it was comfortable and I loved watching the antelope and birds from my verandah. A severe storm brought water bubbling up through the slatted floorboards of the bathroom and everything, clothes on shelves and bed included, felt damp and sticky. I didn't like the salty water for showering at all but I recognise it is the Kalahari and it was the rainy season. Staff (especially Obi), guide and food were all great. Never managed though to have water in the thermos that was hot enough for tea! But there was plenty of lovely cold drinking water.
