Great setting on Kalahari dune

Kieliekrankie is set in the heart of the Kalahari atop of one of the highest dunes. It's a great setting, with wide vistas of the rippling Kalahari dunefield and overlooking a waterhole.

The chalets are well designed and sit unobtrusively as possible in the local environment. Each has a raised deck out front which is great for watching the incredible skies in the evening and the sunrise in the morning. Probably the best view of the milky way we have ever seen.

The waterhole didn't attract a huge amount of large animals during our three night stay, but the local pair of Steenbok put in regular appearances. However, the surrounding bushes and shrubs teem with birds, many of which populated the bush adjacent to our deck and seemed unconcerned about our presence. Great for photography.

Jacque, The camp warden was very friendly and helpful kept the camp absolutely spotless.

Superb views over the red dunescape

After Bitterpan and Gharagab, this is an upmarket wilderness camp.

Well cared for by the ranger and having a stunning outlook. Game was scarce when we were there but we were told a leopard was there a day before. Good facilities, well maintained and a convenient location. Easily accessible.

No air con so it will be hot in summer but the chalets are clean and well planned.

Kielie Krankie - Stunning location

We spent just one night at Kielie Krankie and we could not have a better farewell to the Kalahari.

The camp is superbly located, the cabins are immaculate fitted and designed into the surroundings and extremely comfortable. A huge balcony overlooking the waterhole down the red sand dunes gave us a superb view. The landscape, the barking geckos and the jackals visiting the waterhole at dawn were magical.

This is a "serious" base for exploring the southern part of the park itself. The guard (we do not remember his name) was very friendly, helpful and attentive.

Kielie Krankie Wilderness Camp review

We really had no idea what to expect - the waterhole was so far away that we wouldn't have seen a lot, and there was only one steenbok to visit for the whole night - however, it was wonderful to be there - the accommodation was much better than we had expected with all mod cons, even though the water failed in the morning, it did eventually come on and we were able to shower before we left - we had been warned that the electricity might fail, but that was not a problem.

The views were stunning and to have our first experience of waking to the sunrise was beautiful.
