Luxury Holidays At Kalahari Plains Camp

Covering 12-million acres, the captivating Central Kalahari Game Reserve is Botswana’s largest conservation area. This remote and wildlife-filled destination is home to the intimate Kalahari Plains Camp, overlooking a vast pan. The central area comprises a dining space, lounge, deck and pool and, in keeping with the camp’s conservation policies, electricity and hot water is provided by solar energy. The Kalahari boasts an exceptionally large concentration of wildlife, and the famous black-maned Kalahari lion and wild dog may be seen on the daily game-drives from camp. The Kalahari also boasts some of the largest populations of cheetah in Africa. In addition, this luxury Botswana safari camp is actively involved with the local Baswara people and you can learn more about their culture on an interactive walk with the bushmen.

Property Highlights:expand_more

The dreamy desert is home to a wealth of wonderful wildlife throughout the year and twice daily game-drives in open vehicles follow the movement of the animals. During the summer rains (December to April) the desert bursts into life with springbok and gemsbok gathering to graze, often shadowed by the mighty black-maned Kalahari lion. In winter (May to October), the dry desert allows for easier sightings of the smaller mammals such as the honey badger, black-backed jackal and the Cape fox. The Kalahari is also home to around 220 bird species, making it paradise for bird watchers.

Hotel Experiences

Above each tent at Kalahari Plains is a purpose-built platform for sleeping out under the stars. It's a truly mesmerising experience lying there, listening to the sounds of wildlife and staring up at the stars that glitter the African night sky. In addition, the Baswara San Bushmen are an integral part to camp life and you can join them on a walk in the desert as they explain their culture and beliefs, as well as how they survive in this harsh landscape.
