      Kalahari Plains Camp

      Home of the Legendary Black-Maned Kalahari Lions

      Located in the diverse and productive Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Kalahari Plains Camp offers one of the most remote experiences in Africa today. The camp is beautifully placed within the Kalahari Desert biome, at approximately 123 million acres, this reserve is the largest conservation area in the country and one of the largest in the world. This area is characterized by vast open grassy plains, seasonal dry lakes, wooded acacia islands, prehistoric scrub-covered dunes and fossil riverbeds. The Kalahari is famed for its outstanding wildlife with vast herds of antelope followed by abundant predators - including the legendary black-maned Kalahari lions. Kalahari Plains Camp is perfectly situated overlooking an immense seasonal lake. It comprises 10 en-suite canvas tents with a sleep-out above each from which to enjoy moonlit or star-studded nights. The main area consists of a lounge and dining area with an inviting swimming pool and deck area. The tents and main area are all raised off the ground to catch the breeze and allow visitors to take in the views across the Kalahari. Solar power provides all the electricity and hot water in the camp - making Kalahari Plains a 100% solar-powered camp - and innovative insulated canvas walls and roof keep the temperatures inside the units comfortable. Thanks to the diversity of habitats, healthy game populations are present year round. With the advent of the summer rains (end of November to April) the desert truly comes to life with short grasses attracting a plethora of plains game such as springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest, steenbok and red hartebeest. In turn these plains animals are followed by predators such as lions, cheetahs, and jackals. Small predators also found here are black-backed jackals, meerkats, Cape foxes, honey badgers and a myriad mongoose species. Some 220 bird species have been recorded to date. Guided game drives unlock the fascinating wildlife treasures found in this wonderful arid area. Visits to Deception Valley or even further afield are longer excursions that are well worthwhile, as the wildlife moves to different parts of the Park. Additionally, the camp offers an interpretive "Bushman Walk" with staff members, where guests gain life-changing insights into the unique culture of the Bushmen clans that have thrived in this area for centuries.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 31 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more
