Uncharted Kalahari

No. of nights: 3 nights including two overnight flights
Locations: The Kalahari Desert
Best to do this: All year there is something amazing happening here.
Style: Luxury tented camps.
For who: The Kalahari is often overlooked when planning a Botswana safari which is odd considering how famous it is – sometimes there just isn’t enough time but if you want to make sure you see as many different sides of Botswana as possible then add this extension into your safari.
Why we love it: The Kalahari is so dramatic you don’t know whether you’re coming or going. An absolute marvel.


Including all meals, all drinks and all activities – and also including your own private sleep out star deck on the roof of your luxury tent.

AS AN ALTERNATIVE: Camp Kalahari in the Makgadikgadi Pans is wonderful and offers the chance to meet habituated meerkats.

BLOW THE BUDGET: San Camp is one of Botswana’s most luxurious camps, and is also close to the meerkats.
