Camp Kalahari is nestled among the acacias and Mokolwane palms of Hyaena Island, close to Ntwetwe Pan and adjacent to the Makgadikgadi National Park.
Camp Kalahari is a great value for money option in the exclusive Makgadikgadi Pans region (unfortunately this doesn’t mean it is cheap to include within an itinerary, as access flights are expensive). The style of the camp is more down to earth than it’s better known sister camps (Jack’s and San) but the tented accommodation is still very comfortable, the food is good and the staff and guides are great. Camp Kalahari is perfect for travellers who are very keen to experience the Makgadikgadi Pans region, with its unique scenery, varied activities and specialist wildlife highlights, but who do not need to stay in a five star environment.
The Makgadikgadi Pans are well worth a visit for anyone who enjoys exploring different habitats and landscapes, and is prepared to compromise a little on the big game experience in favour of geographical diversity and more specialist wildlife viewing. The specialist wildlife is worth a particular mention as it is sometimes the key reason for visiting the area – brown hyaena, aardvark, aardwolf and habituated meerkats.
