Discover San Camp

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.
