Kalahari Plains Camp sits on the edge of an enormous pan, southeast of Deception Valley in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (also known as the CKGR) which offers some of Botswana's best summer game viewing. It is one of just two camps in a reserve approximately the size of Switzerland, and the views from across the pan are exceptional. The camp was moved here from its original location in December 2009, taking it away from the more accessible public roads in the reserve.

Our view of Kalahari Plains Camp

Kalahari Plains Camp is well situated in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve close to the park's most famous area, Deception Valley. We loved the big gauze windows in the tented chalets and the sleep-out decks on the roofs; both made the most of the great views and helped us to feel part of the environment. We were surprisingly impressed by the 'behind the scenes tour' and the camp's eco-credentials – although we have been less impressed by the consistency of its food however we found this greatly improved during our stay in November. The guiding was good and we felt that the camp offers a relatively unexplored wilderness with great game between about December and March. However, we'd be less enthusiastic when the park is drier, and the game less visible, between about June and November.
