Camp Kalahari Introduction
Camp Kalahari is located on Brown Hyaena Island on the brim of the Makgadikgadi Pans and it is one of only three safari camps in this one-million-hectare wildlife reserve.

Four-poster beds, leather and wood furniture, Moroccan rugs, and brass trinkets sew the look together beautifully.

Camp Kalahari Game Viewing and Activities
The activities on offer at Camp Kalahari make the most of every season in the desert through and are entirely unique, suiting adventurers and families with young children alike. During the green season, when the rains have transformed the dry desert and filled the pans with water, the enormously impressive zebra migration moves through the reserve. During the dry season from April to October, the spectacular salt pans reveal themselves and Camp Kalahari conducts its famous quad bike excursions to Kubu Island, which is a two-day adventure. All year round, guests can visit the habituated family of meerkats living in the desert, go on a one-of-a-kind walk with the Bushmen and discover how their ancestors lived for thousands of years. Game drives and horseback safaris are highlights of the Camp Kalahari experience, and wildlife specials include migrating elephants, brown hyaena, black-maned lion, cheetah, bat-eared fox, aardvark, and aardwolf.
