"Kalahari Tented Camp review"

1 night Arrived 5 Sep 2010
"The new border post at Mata Mata is an absolute pleasure.Friendly and super efficient staff. Our tent had a good view of the waterhole but quite a distance away.

The bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. The separate kitchen tent had everything you could need. If there is a problem, the warden calls every day and is always helpful." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 6n in South Africa

"Unexpectedly, our favourite camp!"

1 night Arrived 1 Jun 2010
"Beautifully designed and equipped rooms with a separate kitchen and a superb barbeque area, all private.

Great views across the dry river bed though better for birds than for animals, even though there is a floodlit waterhole.

This was the best birding location due to mature trees. There is an inviting swimming pool here." See all these reviews: 7n in South Africa

"Stay at Kalahari Tented Camp "

2 nights Arrived 10 Sep 2007
"Again, it was good to have so much space. Unlike the Twee Rivieren Camp, we were given the camp rules and there was a list of the activities on offer displayed.

We took an evening drive with the guide who was able to explain much of what we had seen for ourselves during the day.

An added excitement was a sand storm and there were some very strange noises in the night!" See all these reviews: 11n in South Africa; 3n in Namibia
