Camp KalahariAugust 17, 2021
Imagine a smattering of billowing white tents, shaded by desert palms and surrounded by a thousand acres of shimmering, sparkling nothingness. You’ve just dreamt up San Camp, the impossibly romantic, seven-bedroom camp on the edge of the Nwetwe Pan in Botswana’s Makgadikgadi.
San Camp is very special. Situated in a large private concession of about 203,500 Hectares in the Makgadikgadi, it is an utterly gorgeous and lavish camp with views out over the pans that will take your breath away. The camp is visible from quite far away given there are no raised areas of ground for much of the region, but it is a pleasing site.
There are 6 guest suites, beautifully designed to high specifications. The main mess area too is a wonderful place to spend your day surrounded by style and and an ambience that is unlike anything you may have experienced before. Tailormade Africa particularly like the fact that it is a camp that forces you to be unplugged. No wifi, internet or phone signal to be found. There is a charging station for camera batteries and tablets etc in the main area.
The range of activities from San Camp makes sure your days are always interesting, backed up by very professional and knowledgeable guides. This last point can’t be overstated in it’s importance. Areas such as these can’t compete with other more traditional parks or reserves for wildlife and therefore the ability to keep guests in awe is down entirely to the guide.
Activities include Bushman walks, Quadbiking, Vehicle Safari, Meerkat, Brown Hyena den visit and hugely interesting Palaeontology walks.
Whilst this entire region may not offer a traditional safari experience, San Camp does offer an experience that we are sure most people would appreciate and find wholly worthwhile to add to their safari itinerary.
San isn’t a place for frills and fluffiness. The magic is in the minimalism, both at the camp and in the mysterious desert landscape. You can forget the tourist crowds and over-stuffed 4x4s too; it’s just you, the wildlife, and a handful of local San Bushmen, waiting to share their secrets with you.
There are five twin tents with en-suite bathrooms and spacious veranda. Tents are spacious and stylish. Beds are replete with cool and crunchy cotton sheets, feather bedding and hot water bottles. All have solar lighting.
