Set in the surreal landscape of The Great Salt Pans, Camp Kalahari is a 12-tented desert camp nestled amongst palm and acacia trees.
Located on Brown Hyena Island, on the edge of Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and adjacent to the Makgadikgadi-Nxai Pans National Park, the camp is under the umbrella of the Natural Selection group, which provides safaris with character.
One of only three camps set in a one-million-acre private reserve, plus a wide range of adventure activities to choose from, Camp Kalahari is ideal for those looking for a digital detox (there’s no WiFi out here in the bush) and a unique Botswana safari experience.
Here, you’ll be able to spot wildlife such as bat-eared foxes, aardvark, aardwolf, cheetah, lion, zebra, wildebeest (the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest takes place around this region between January and April), elephant (known to drink at the camp’s swimming pool), as well as the island’s namesake, the brown hyena (one of the rarest large carnivores on the continent).
Embark on game drives in custom 4x4 vehicles, quad bike across the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, explore the wild on horseback, take bush walks with the Zu’/hoasi bushmen and meet the camp’s most adorable residents, the “Kalahari Cool Cats.” This habituated meercat group loves using camp guests as lookout points!
