Not big on the style stakes, on the edge of the park and far from the pans.
One of Africa’s most loved camps, with spacious tents under palms bedecked with persian rugs and other grandeur. An unusual, desert-type safari on the vast, silent & shimmering pans with unusual species like brown hyena, aardvark and gemsbok – and they have meerkats! Close to San Camp.
Rustic camp with African textiles, located far from other camps. Interact with the habituated meerkats, walk with San bushmen. Close to famed 7 Sisters baobab trees.
Dreamy white tents spaced far apart on the edge of the white pans, lit by laterns – the most romantic camp in Africa? And a yoga paviliion to soak up the stillness. Close to Jack’s Camp.
Quirky, comfortable and homely (food is handcooked on the fire), fantastic game viewing at the river in front of camp. Not actually on the pans, but central for exploring them, loads of activities.
These immense, dry pans are an unusual safari experience, the best place to view cheetah, and good for meerkats, elusive wild cat, porcupine, aardwolf and honey badger. In the dry season the Makgadikgadi Pans are surreal in their moonlike appearance. In the rainy season it’s all transformed; flamingoes in the pans, zebra migration and the black-maned kalahari lion. Simple tented camps allow a close-to-nature experience. Botswana.
