Adjoining the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Deception Valley Lodge offers a unique bush experience in one of Africa's most remote semi-desert areas. The Deception Valley Lodge is situated on the border of the Central Kalahari Reserve.
The Kalahari Desert is a dry featureless world of sand and bush, with breathtaking landscapes and an incredible diversity and wealth of wildlife and strangely adapted plants. Established in 1961, the Central Kalahari Reserve was originally intended as a sanctuary for its human inhabitants and is the last domain of the nomadic Bushmen (San people).
Most safaris to Botswana do not take you to the desert, and a few days added to Deception Valley Lodge will greatly increase your appreciation of this area. Private charter flights can take you directly from the Okavango Delta or Maun to Deception Valley Lodge.
Deception Valley Lodge is accessible by air and by road. This Central Kalahari safari lodge has its own registered airstrip and is accessible from Maun and Kasane by light aircraft charter. Access by road is from Ghanzi, Rakops and Maun by 4x4 vehicle only. Access from Johannesburg is on Air Botswana's daily service to Maun.
