San Camp
Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

San Camp is the most authentic and classic Makgadikgadi Pans safari lodge, billowing white tents are shaded by desert palms, surrounded by miles of shimmering salt pans. This is a place where you can truly escape!

Your Expected Makgadikgadi Pans Safari Lodge Experience

  • Lodging: Elegant white safari tents offer 360 degree views of the salt pans
  • Location: Located on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans in the Kalahari Desert
  • Activities: Game drives, expeditions onto the Salt Pans on quad bikes, walks

San Camp is unique in that it is the only permanent (other than Jack Camp) camp to offer a chance to explore and understand the Kalahari. The concession adjoins the Makgadikgadi National Park with its endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands. Desert palms line the horizon, and behind the camp are huge salt pans of the Makgadikgadi National Park

This Makgadikgadi Pans safari lodge is the only way that guests are able to experience the Makgadikgadi and understand the Kalahari. You will also gain a unique and sensitive insight into the tradition and culture of the Bushmen people. The Makgadikgadi Pans is an extinct superlake, covering an area the size of Switzerland, with not a single human inhabitant, and one of Botswana's most dominant geophysical characteristics!

The Kalahari is the desert with the highest species diversity and is home to many unique desert-adapted species such as Brown Hyaena and Suricate, which you will not be able to see elsewhere in Botswana.

San Camp activities offer an opportunity for guests to gain a holistic understanding of Botswana's wildlife, its geography, geology and its people. This camp offers a very unique experience compared to other camps, therefore very important that guests spend 3 days, if at all possible.

There is no WiFi at San Camp. This is a place to truly unwind and disconnect - watch the local desert-adapted wildlife and the adorable meerkats, join the Bushmen on a bush walk, explore the salt-crusted earth by quad-bike or recharge in the yoga and meditation pavilion.
