  • Important Information
Kalahari Plains Camp is beautifully situated overlooking an immense pan and open plains. The main area comprises a lounge, dining area and bar under canvas canopy with ceiling fans. The camp is raised slightly off the ground to take in the view and features include an camp fire area as well as a swimming pool.

The tents have canvas walls and are raised off the ground. Due to being in the desert, the canvas and roofs have been specially insulated to keep out the majority of the heat during the day and the cold during the night.

Each family unit is set on one deck and features a main room, with a smaller room for the children. The bathroom forms a link between the two rooms and services both rooms. Each unit also features a downstairs shaded verandah and an upstairs roof-top veranda, affording fantastic views over the pan and plains, and guests are welcome to sleep on the deck above each unit to enjoy the night skies.

This part of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve offers year-round viewing of key desert-adapted wildlife. Summer is spectacular, with huge concentrations of plains game followed by predators such as lion and cheetah. This is a premium desert experience throughout the year, with prime game-viewing during the summer months.

General herbivore species easily seen include gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, grey duiker and steenbok. Other big game include the sensational black-maned Kalahari lion, as well as one of the highest concentrations of cheetah in Southern Africa, leopard, brown hyaena and even caracal. Small predators include meerkats, Cape fox, honey badger, black-backed jackal, and many mongoose species.

Due to thick sand and road conditions the camp can only be accessed by 4x4 vehicles and guests should have experience of driving in thick sand. All self-drivers to camp must have a confirmed reservation prior to arriving in camp. Self-drivers are welcome to partake in camp activities/drives but may not do self-drives within a 3 km radius of camp – ie within the private area of the camp. On arrival at the National Park gate, guests should sign the Kalahari Plains entrance book to be eligible for the discounted certified “Operators” rate associated with Kalahari Plains camp. All National Park fees are to be paid in camp and are calculated on a per person and per vehicle entrance rate, not per night. Neither Wilderness Adventures nor the staff of Kalahari Plains camp are responsible for self-drive guests reaching camp. Accordingly all self-drive guests should ensure they have all information, equipment and necessities to reach their destination. All self-drive guests in Botswana should travel with and be experienced in the use of a GPS as well as ensuring they have a satellite phone which is fully charged at all times.
