Kalahari Plains Camp
Place: Situated on an immense pan, Kalahari Plains lies in a remote corner of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, a place famed for vast herds of antelope followed by abundant predators – including the legendary black-maned Kalahari lions and feisty honey badgers. Located in the Kalahari Desert in central Botswana, this reserve is the largest conservation area in the country, and one of the largest in the world. It offers some of the best summer wildlife viewing in Africa. Game drives unlock wildlife treasures, while respectful San cultural experiences provide insights into their unique customs and traditions.
Accommodation: Eight en-suite canvas tents (including one family unit) each include a sleep-out rooftop platform from which to enjoy the endless horizons, and beautiful night skies. The camp, including its main area with pool and deck, takes in the sweeping, spacious views across the Kalahari. Solar power provides electricity and hot water, with innovative insulated canvas walls and roofs keeping the temperatures inside comfortable.
Purpose: Kalahari Plains is involved in a number of conservation initiatives that include wild dog research, and working closely with local communities.
