Kalahari Plains Camp

Discover Kalahari Plains Camp

Kalahari Plains Camp is a tented camp situated in a remote part of the diverse and productive Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The Kalahari Desert biome is a place famed for its outstanding wildlife with vast herds of antelope and legendary black-maned Kalahari lions.

The camp is beautifully situated on a low sandy ridge fringing a typical Kalahari pan and comprises ten Meru-style en-suite tents, including two family units, each with a sleep-out area from which to enjoy the night skies. The camp is raised off the ground to catch the breeze and take in the sweeping, spacious views across the Kalahari. There is a star-gazing deck on the roof above the bar and an open campfire area in front where dinner is usually served if the weather allows.
