If you are looking for something truly unique in the arid Kalahari, you will not be disappointed by Deception Valley Lodge. Here, at this luxury oasis in the middle of the Kalahari you can interact with the Bushmen and learn from their vast knowledge of the surroundings and the wildlife. The lodge is located near to the Okavango Delta which offers prolific wildlife and bird life, and even star gazing here is better than most places. Combining a Kalahari desert experience with visits to the nearby Delta or the Victoria Falls will truly ensure that your African safari remains a most treasured memory!
The main lodge provides luxurious comfort and provides accommodation for only sixteen people, thereby preserving the intimacy of the lodge. Here you can find a dining area, library and guest lounge with rustic African décor and Bushman artefacts. There is also a curio shop and massive timber viewing deck overlooking a watering hole where you can relax with a refreshing drink while watching the antics of the wildlife below. A swimming pool is nearby for a refreshing cool-down after a dusty game drive, and a rustic boma is provided where guests can enjoy meals under the stars or relax in the shade.
Eight separate chalets built on stilts provide accommodation. Each chalet features an en-suite Victorian style bathroom, private outdoor shower, four poster bed with mosquito net and a comfortable lounge area. A mini bar provides refreshment when needed and a ceiling fan keeps the chalet lovely and cool.
A great detail of detail has been worked into the lodge to ensure the comfort and safety of guests, and the atmosphere at the lodge is welcoming, intimate and tranquil. Activities include game drives during the day or night and nature game hikes with expert Bushmen guides. You may also choose to do some start gazing or bird watching before cooling down in the pristine pool! Charter flights can also be organised for a bird’s eye view over the pans. Full day trips are also conducted on request for guests, and include a game drive, all fees, lunch and drinks. Truly unforgettable!
