Situated on an immense pan, Kalahari Plains Camp lies in a remote part of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, a place famed for its outstanding wildlife with vast herds of antelope followed by abundant predators – including the legendary black-maned Kalahari lions and lively honey badgers. This region also offers some of the best summer wildlife viewing in Africa.
Kalahari Plains comprises nine en-suite canvas units each with a sleep-out area from which to enjoy the night skies. The en-suite bathrooms are complete with a flushing toilet, twin handbasins with copper taps, a full-length mirror and walk-in shower. Two of the tented chalets have a second en-suite bedroom sleeping up to two children, so are ideal for families, or friends travelling together.
A large proportion of the main area is taken up by an inviting lounge/dining area, an eclectic gathering of comfortable chairs, tea and coffee-making facilities with freshly baked biscuits, and a small reference library. At the heart of the building, the bar is the venue for pre-dinner drinks. The lounge and dining area has a separate swimming pool and deck. The camp is raised off the ground to catch the breeze and take in the sweeping, spacious views across the Kalahari. Solar power provides electricity and hot water, and the innovative insulated canvas walls and roof keep the temperatures inside comfortable.
Guided game drives unlock the wildlife treasures found here, and authentic San Bushman experiences provide insights into the unique culture of this people, their skills and way of life.
