About
Description
San Camp, deep in the Kalahari, is one of the most romantic and intimate camps in Africa. Completely rebuilt in 2011, the camp's classic six white tents stand majestically on the edge of the endless More Makgadikgadi Salt Pans - each sheltered by a cluster of desert palms. The central dining tent houses a small library and natural history museum filled with fascinating artefacts from the area. There is also a yoga and meditation tent for Guests wanting to enjoy the space and serenity of the area. San Camp operates during the dry season, from 16th April to 15th October. Activities on offer at San Camp include: interacting with incredibly friendly habituated meerkats, walking with Bushmen Guides, game drives to experience unique desert wildlife, Chapman's Baobab - one of the oldest and biggest trees in Africa, bird watching, night drives and quad biking across the lunar expanse of the pans Less
