On your next African safari, you should book into Kalahari Plains Camp for a truly memorable experience in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana. Here you can very close to nature while you experience the remoteness of a camp in the African desert. Game viewing here is diverse and there is a high rate of cheetah viewing. You can also interact with the San Bushmen who are native to this area and benefit from their holistic understanding of nature, local wildlife and ecology. The seasonal changes and the diverse habitat also offer a great variety of animals and birds.
The camp is situated in a desert pan with extensive vistas over the Kalahari grasslands and the intimacy of the camp is preserved by offering accommodation for only a limited number of guests. Ten canvas tents built on raised platforms ensure a comfortable stay. The tents are appointed for privacy and décor is stylish with colonial elegance. The en-suite bathrooms contain basins, shower, and toilet. The large beds are very welcoming and a private viewing deck is attached to each tent platform for a great view over the plains. The canvas tents are well insulated for comfort, have windows with mesh covers, and the raised platforms provide a great place to relax and watch game.
The main area of the camp provides a charming and comfortable guest lounge where guests can relax, a dining area and a well-stocked guest bar. The swimming pool is the best place to cool off after a game drive, and sundowners can be enjoyed on the viewing decks. Electricity and hot water are provided by solar power.
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is one of the largest reserves in the world and is home to a diverse group of animals that include plenty of predators. If you are lucky you may even see a cheetah or Black-maned Kalahari lion in action!
Activities include interaction with the local Baswara people who have lived a nomadic existence in this area for centuries. There are also game drives with expert trackers, opportunities for wildlife photography, bird watching, and stargazing.
