A safari camp set in an oasis of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve
The Kalahari Plains camp is found in one of the largest protected areas in Africa, ranging at a whopping 52.800 km². A stay here helps to protect and conserve the wilderness, while all the camp’s electricity and hot water come from solar power for a lower impact stay. From the main area with its pool and deck area, guests can enjoy expansive Kalahari views. For a taste of the local flavours, guests can have bush brunches out in Deception Valley and sample the rare Kalahari truffle, sourced by the local San people. Explore the semi-arid sandy savannah on a guided game drive to view fascinating desert-adapted wildlife like oryxes, cheetahs and the famed Kalahari black-maned lions.
Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
Standard En-suite Tents
The 8 Standard Tents, all well-insulated and made of canvas and wood, each accommodate 2 adults and feature en-suite bathroom facilities. Each tent has a rooftop sleep-out platform where you can enjoy views of the plains and spend time under the African night sky for exceptional stargazing moments.
The 1 family canvas tented unit comes with 2 three-quarter beds in each bedroom. The unit consists of 2 bedrooms, and each has its own bathroom and own entrance while sharing a deck.
