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.
- Quad biking, horseback riding, bushman walks and traditional game drives
- Great for families - a dedicated family suite and a fence around the camp
- Watch 50,000 zebra and wildebeest migrate through the area from January to April
- Habituated meerkats who like to use unsuspecting guests as lookout points
