Grassland Bushman Lodge, Central Kalahari, Botswana

Our rating: Simple

A small lodge with an intimate feel, Grasslands Bushman Lodge is situated to the west of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. Accommodating a maximum of only 16 guests in private ensuite chalets, the lodge is surrounded by beautiful scenery, birds and wildlife.

The main lodge overlooks a popular floodlit waterhole and it is normal to see large herds of eland, oryx, kudu and even the secretive brown hyena coming in to drink at night. When not out on activities, you can enjoy a dip in the refreshing plunge pool or relax in the shaded pool side bar and lounge.

During your stay at Grasslands Bushman Lodge you can participate in a wide array of guided activities. The main focus is definitely on the Kalahari Bushmen, with the opportunity to learn about their culture, go out on informative walks and discover the secrets of survival in the arid desert landscape. The lodge also offers game drives, horse back safaris (must be booked in advance) and a predator rehabilitation project.
