San Camp

Situated on the edge of the vast and mysterious Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in the midst of the Kalahari Desert, is one of Botswana’s most romantic camps, San Camp. The camp lies amongst sparsely dotted fan palms and grasslands, with 360 degrees of nothing-ness crossing the eye but the bowl of the sky and curvature of the earth.

The six large, white traditional canvas tents face the shore of a sparkling salt pan, privately set apart in dramatic locations. Pared down safari elegance with minimal ecological impact and spectacular vistas is what makes this such a special place to relax, unwind and retreat. The tents boast unusual high beds and en-suite facilities including a flush toilet, hot and cold running water showers and a washing basin cabinet. In keeping with the tradition of a by-gone era lighting is simple with traditional old spirit lamps. Open-sided with billowing white curtains adding to the romance the mess tent contains a small natural history museum and library, there is a nearby tea tent spread with cushions and providing a sheltering sanctuary and a tented yoga pavilion.

Why we like San Camp

The sunset over the pans are truly not to be missed or forgotten.
