Set on 43 000 hectares of pristine Kalahari Desert, bordering the enormous Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Deception Valley Lodge is the premier Kalahari destination in Botswana. A passion for sustainable conservation inspires the guest experience at Deception Valley Lodge and the magic of the Kalahari is unlocked with guidance and expertise.
The lodge has established the Deception Valley Conservancy to care for the area.
The vision of the Deception Valley Conservancy is to return previous farming and hunting land to the untamed natural treasure it once was.
Visitors experience and learn about the region through a variety of traditional and immersive activities. The Conservancy has created a considered network of road tracks for perfect, guided day and night driving safaris.
There are eight spacious suites each with a separate lounge area, en-suite bathroom with Victorian bath and outdoor shower. Each room has a stunning viewing deck and convenient mini bar. There are two family suites to welcome families of different sizes. Deception Valley Lodge has created a lodge that prevails in comfort and style, allowing the Kalahari Desert to feel welcoming.
Excellent tracking opportunities are provided by the Kalahari sand and a dedicated tracker accompanies each vehicle on its activities. A visit to the lodge would be incomplete without experiencing the San Bushman walk with the Naru-tribe. The desert comes alive when sharing the eyes of those who have lived in the region for tens of thousands of years.
One feels Lilliputian in the arms of the vast Kalahari skies, which are renowned for star-gazing. Deception Valley Lodge focuses on star-gazing and allows guests the opportunity to appreciate the vast night sky unhindered by light pollution.
