Camp Kalahari, Makgadikgadi Pans Region
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Tented Camp
Camp Kalahari is on the edge of the Makgadikgadi salt pans in the Kalahari Desert. The remote camp is laid out in traditional safari style with the library, lounge and dining area under thatch rooves. The 10 Meru-style tented rooms have classic, old safari-style interiors, with king or twin beds, crisp cotton sheets and traditional African blankets. The en-suite bathrooms are outdoors and have flush loos and refreshing showers. The family unit comprises two tents with an inter-leading bathroom and children of all ages are welcome. The field guides team up with local bushmen learning how to survive in the harsh environment. Go on morning walks and game drives; venture into the mysterious pans on quad bikes; visit the famous Chapman's Baobab tree; and track the gemsbok, springbok and meerkats with the chance to see the elusive aardvark and brown hyena. The landscape is transformed when the rains arrive in November, bringing with them huge migrations of zebra and wildebeest. The immensity of the Pans is overwhelming, being one of the world's largest super-lakes which dried up thousands of years ago as a result of the earth’s shifting crust.
