Camp Kalahari sits on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans on a shrubby outcrop known as Hyena Island. It’s the simplest of the three camps in this region, but still makes a good location from which to explore the salt pans in the dry season, or witness southern Africa’s largest migration of zebra and wildebeest when the rains arrive. There is no electricity at Camp Kalahari, which serves to add to the atmosphere, with the camp lit by paraffin lanterns at night. ***STOP PRESS*** Due to late rains, the quad biking activity is not yet up and running. This activity will be resumed when the pans are completely dry, which is anticipated to be around mid-May.
Our view of Camp Kalahari
Camp Kalahari doesn’t have the prestige or the refinements of its sister camps, but it offers similar activities for a cut-down price. The wide range of activities means that no one, young or old, should become bored – but you should expect simpler facilities and meals, and probably more companions on your drives, than you would have had at its sister-camps. It’s a good option for travellers with children, but also delivers a relaxed and peaceful experience.
