Situated in an oasis of acacia and palms known as Hyena Island, Camp Kalahari provides unique style and comfort in the heart of Botswana’s remote Kalahari Desert.
Accommodations at the camp consist of ten resident tents in the Meru style and are classically appointed with comfortable four-poster beds and en-suite facilities with hot and cold water and flushed toilets. These eclectic rooms pair traditional campaign style furniture with colonial antiques. The camp is especially welcoming to families as it offers twin, double, and family suites.
The camp is nestled among the acacias and Mokolwane palms of Brown Hyaena Island and lies adjacent to the barren Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, an ancient super lake that dried long ago, leaving behind a vast emptiness. However, the outer reaches of the pan spring to life each year as the summer rains revive seasonal lakes and lush grasslands. The sudden explosion of flora attracts wildlife and wildfowl on a scale of rare proportions. During the wet season visitors can witness the last surviving migration of zebra and wildebeest in Southern Africa with an estimated 30,000 animals, the majority being zebra, participating each year. Nearby is the famous Chapman’s Baobab which is acknowledged to be the third largest tree in Africa, and was the campsite of early explorers like Livingstone and Selous.
