San Camp is situated on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans in the midst of Botswana’s Kalahari Desert. This traditional East African style camp sits serenely under the protection of palm trees, in a position where you can literally see the curve of the earth. The endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands and 360° of nothingness give you a stark introduction to explore and understand the Kalahari. The main guest areas comprise large open-sided canvas structures, furnished in classic Colonial style, with pieces, images and drapes depicting true African explorers.
The 6 white canvas tented rooms are privately set apart from each other, in dramatic locations, facing out to the pans. They are each an oasis of civilization in what can be the harshest of environments. There is no electricity, so the rooms are lit with paraffin lamps and the four-poster beds are draped with percale linens under mosquito net canopies. The “en-suite” bucket showers and flush toilets are set slightly away from the bedroom tents.
See Above Description.
Your stay at San Camp includes all meals, local drinks and activities.
Enjoy this complete desert experience, which focuses on species unique to the area such as aardvark, gemsbuck, springbuck and the elusive brown hyaena. You can venture far into the centre of the pans with quad bikes, to explore remote archaeological sites and fossil beds of extinct giant zebra and hippo. The highly qualified Guides team up with a small group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen to guide you on informative morning walks and game drives. Here you learn from the Bushmen, how they survive in this environment, using ancient knowledge of plants, animal behaviour and survival skills.
