Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge

Discover Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge

Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge is located on the Intu Afrika Kalahari Private Game Reserve which is a 10,000ha wildlife sanctuary forming a part of the south-western region of the Kalahari Desert and along the upper reaches of the Auob river system. Aptly named for being located itself between two sand dunes in an area filled with Camelthorn threes, The Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge offers 12 rondavel-style thatched huts all sparsely set against a backdrop of red dune sands,piercing blue skies, yellow grasses and the greens and browns of the Camelthorn and Acacia trees.

With crisp white linen on comfortable beds, the San-inspired décor compliments this stylish yet rustic style. The en-suite bathrooms are fitted with a large shower, air conditioning and a tea and coffee station. There is a stone patio attached to each rondavel from which guest can enjoy the captivating scenes of the Kalahari Desert.

Despite there being a waterhole in close proximity attracting a host of animals, the lodge's swimming pool attracts the odd Oryx, much to the delight of the guests. There is also a lounge, bar and boma area where are large fires are lit and barbeques can be enjoyed in the evenings. The lodge's restaurant is upstairs to allow for a better view of the surrounding scenery. Here guests enjoy meals using organically grown vegetables from the neighbouring farm.
