Camp Kalahari

Located on Hyena Island at the edge of an ancient super lake and adjacent to the Makgadikgadi National Park, is the classically quaint, Camp Kalahari. Nestled amongst acacias trees and Mokolwane palms, looking onto the completely vast and empty nothingness of the glittering-white Makgadikgadi saltpan, Camp Kalahari offers fresh and affordable adventure. Camp Kalahari is a return to the traditional safari style of the old explorers, and is the best way to experience the Makgadikgadi in a fresh and affordable way. A thatched central library, living and dining area featuring an eclectic mix of original African furniture and textiles paired with traditional campaign style pieces and colonial antiques provide the perfect area in which to relax and enjoy the serenity of this enchanting area.

Camp Kalahari Restaurants

Camp Kalahari’s chef is a talented chap, noted for his tasty soups and particularly for his "Pilli-Pilli Ho-Ho," a lethal concoction of chilies marinated in sherry and gin. Smeared over one's breakfast eggs, it's just the thing to sharpen sleep dulled wits in preparation for whatever adventures await!

Activities

With two distinct seasons in the Makgadikgadi, the dry season and the wet season, a variety of activities are offered, adjusted to match the season. There are day trips for game viewing with a focus on the annual zebra and wildebeest migration, quad biking adventures on the vast and endless salt pans, informative Bushman interactions, visits to Chapman’s Baobab and magical encounters with the pixie-faced Meerkats.
