Camp Kalahari is nestled amongst acacias and palms, on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan.
The Makgadikgadi Pan covers 12,000 square kilometres of the north-eastern part of Botswana. The pan was once a superlake that was formed more than 5 million years ago, which used to cover 80,000 square kilometers of land, and had a depth of 30 meters (100 feet). But 10,000 years ago, the lake started to dry up as climatic changes occured, and today all that is left are the large salt pans that are truly one of Africa's most stunning and magical natural features.
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. Camp Kalahari accepts children of all ages and makes for a fantastic family safari destination.
Activities offered from Camp Kalahari include 4WD safaris in the Makgadigadi National Park, and spot-lit night drives. You will also get the chance to visit Chapman's Baobab – which is estimated to be about 4,500 to 5,000 years old. A hole in this great tree was used as post box in historic times, when people left mail to be collected by those passing.
A real highlight of Camp Kalahari is a visit to their resident family of meerkats (sometimes called 'suricats').
The camp consists of 12 meru safari tents. There are 6 twin tents, 4 double tents and 2 family tents with a double and twin, plus a common bathroom.
Camp Kalahari also has a traditional thatched lounge, library and dining area with earth floors and a thatch roof. There is no electricity, and the camp is lit by paraffin lanterns at night.
The food at the camp embraces the camp's remote and African surrounds and guests are offered gourmet Afro-fusion and always wholesome offerings at every meal.
