Kalahari Safari Lodging Guide

The Kalahari environment is one of pristine beauty and is unique because it does not meet ones preconceived expectations of a desert. Instead of periodically shifting sand dunes, this semi-arid landscape has significant vegetation cover to be a seasonal wildlife haven.

It is a destination for the adventurous traveler who seeks to experience the feeling of space and freedom in these vast open plains.

Lodges in the Central Kalahari Reserve

These are some fantastic desert lodges and camps that vary between Meru style tents and thatched chalets, as well as between standard and luxury.

All of them offer day and night game drives, but a few of them offer desert walking trails led by San bushmen who will be able to show how they and their ancestors have survived in this land for thousands of years.
