    Camp Kalahari

    The laidback little sister of Jack’s and San Camp, Camp Kalahari is our understated and affordable base in the heart of the great Kalahari. Set amongst the waving palms and acacia trees of Brown Hyena Island, the 12 funky Meru tents are perfect for families, groups and couples, and are an ideal base for discovering the charms of the desert and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, a landscape that’s as surreal as it is sublime, and as mysterious as it is magical.

    And if you’re looking for adventure, then look no further! We’ve got quad bike adventures, across the otherworldly salt pans, walks with the Zu’/hoasi bushmen to discover the amazing creatures that somehow manage to survive (and thrive) in this harsh environment, and our very own ‘’Kalahari cool cats,’’ the habituated meerkat family who like nothing more than to use unsuspecting guests as lookout points. Come for a day, and you’ll be wowed by the landscape and the people; stay for a few days and you might never want to leave…

    • Camp Kalahari is one of only three camps in a one million-acre private wildlife reserve, with just 12, Meru-style tents set amongst the palms.
    • There’s a veritable blockbuster of activities to get stuck into, including quad biking, horseback riding, bushman walks and traditional game drives.
    • CK is great camp for families. It’s unique, fresh, and affordable, children from all ages are welcome, there’s a dedicated family suite and a fence around the camp too.
    • Watch 50,000 zebra and wildebeest migrate through the area from January to April.
    • Enjoy lazy siestas in the swimming pool pavilion and, in the dry season, watch the ellies come to drink at the water – a memory you won’t forget in a hurry!


    Offering a refined sense of home, our boutique hotel has six large luxurious suites, in – and outdoor living areas, and lovingly-manicured sprawling gardens that are coupled with our renowned service and facilities. With relaxation a priority for guests, our team is on-hand to assist with even the smallest of arrangements.

    Our food and wine experience is both personal and sophisticated, with a strong emphasis on dishes that are delicious, fresh and healthy. Our chefs use only fresh seasonal ingredients, preparing unique dishes that speak to the terroir of our surrounds.

    Over two hectares of gardens fan out from The Thatch House, offering guests the opportunity to disconnect from their busy lives and reconnect with their family and friends during their stay.

    Whether it’s reading a book on one of our pool loungers, or kayaking across the tranquil lagoon on a double kayak with your partner, there is plenty on offer for every type of traveller at our exceptional hotel.
