Kalahari Plains Camp is situated in a remote part of the diverse and productive Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) and offers some of the best summer wildlife viewing opportunities in Africa. Located in the Kalahari Desert biome in the central part of Botswana, this reserve is the largest conservation area in this country and at 5 million hectares (12 million acres), one of the largest in the world.

Central Kalahari Camp is easily combined with the Okavango Delta and Linyanti regions to provide a comprehensive Botswana experience - and in summer it is simply unbeatable as a wildlife destination.

Rooms & Suites:

The Central Kalahari Camp is beautifully situated close to the famous Deception Valley and comprises six Meru-style en-suite tents with a central area with lounge, dining area and central bar. The tents and main area are all raised a metre off the ground to catch the breeze and take in the sweeping spacious view across the Kalahari.

Solar power provides electricity and hot water, and the innovative insulated canvas walls and roof keep the temperatures inside comfortable.

Activities:

During the summer months (November through to end April) the northern part of the CKGR offers some of the best wildlife viewing in Botswana: The abundance of herbivores and their prey is perfectly complemented with lush green landscapes, floral displays and beautiful skies. At this time of year these verdant flatlands are alive with aggregations of gemsbok, springbok and blue wildebeest, followed in turn by high predator concentrations.

At other times, the Kalahari is more typically a desert-type system: warm and dry. Game viewing remains productive and moves into the vegetated dunal belt and pan systems surrounding the valleys. General game easily seen include gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, grey duiker and steenbok. Some 220 bird species have been recorded to date.

Guided game drives unlock the fascinating wildlife treasures found in this wonderful area with excellent cheetah viewing a regular feature. San Bushman experiences provide insights into the unique culture of this fascinating people.
