San Camp, Makgadikgadi Pans, Kalahari, Botswana
San Camp is small and personal with just six cream safari tents. It is a seasonal camp, which is only available to guests between April and October.
It sits on the brink of the Makgadikgadi Pan itself and as such has dramatic views. Each tent has dark polished wooden floors, antique chests and en-suite bathroom with outdoor showers. The spacious lounge is filled with cushions, perfect for relaxing and taking in the view. There is no electricity at the camp, which gives it an authentic feel and it looks beautiful at night when it is lit with lamps.
Activities from San Camp vary enormously and are guided both by guides and researchers. There's the chance to watch the shy brown hyena, sit surrounded by meerkats, walk with the Bushmen and lie on a salt pan watching the stars. But apart from this there is more, much more. But to unveil the secrets of San Camp you must visit yourself.
