Situated on the edge of the vast Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in Botswana, San Camp is a solar-powered, low-impact camp with paired-down, romantic minimalism. It's just you, the unique desert wildlife, and a handful of local San Bushmen.
San Camp's 7 classic white tents are beautifully elegant and offer 360-degree views over the sparkling salt pans, with each sheltered by a cluster of stately desert palms. Facilities include a mess tent that contains a small natural history museum and library, a tea tent spread with cushions providing a sheltering sanctuary, and a tented yoga pavilion.
- Billowing white tents, desert palms and acres of shimmering nothingness
- See lion, brown hyena, bat-eared fox, ostrich and even kori bustard
- Get up close and personal with habituated meerkats
- Join the Zu/hoasi Bushmen on a bushwalk
