Central Kalahari Game Reserve

Our 7 lodges and safari camps in Central Kalahari Game Reserve

Until 2009, visitors to the CKGR had two accommodation options: stay either within the park, using the park’s demarcated campsites, or at one of the lodges outside the park boundary, which are not close enough for day trips. Now, however, two new lodges are situated inside the park boundary, which opens up the reserve to those who would not consider camping.
In addition, here we've included details of the camps, which lie just on the northern site of Central Kalahari. Ask us for more details of what's where, and what's likely to suit you best!
