Kalahari Plains Camp

If you want remote, Kalahari Plains Camp is about as far from anywhere as you can get. The ultimate middle-of-nowhere experience, Kalahari Plains Camp is situated near the centre of one of the world's largest games reserves, itself in the centre of Botswana - one of the world's most sparsely populated countries.

And it's not just remoteness that makes Kalahari Plains Camp attractive. The wildlife safari and wilderness experience are amazing, especially in the rainy summers of Botswana when the semi-arid desert turns idyllic. Huge herds of plains game move in a like a rattle-snake - with a lethal tail of predators including the legendary black-maned lions as well as cheetah, hyena and wild dog.

Accommodation is rustic with essential comforts covered and even some little luxuries thrown in. But don't expect the wi-fi, cable TV and 24-hour bubbly on call, the Central Kalahari Game Reserve is Botswana's impenetrable back of beyond wilderness. A place only the San hunter/gatherers - Africa's gentle custodians - know how to survive out here where 4WD, diff-lock and traction-control are as nothing to the soft sand of the Kalahari.

Facilities

Accommodation at Kalahari Plains Camp comprises just six safari tents, each raised above the ground on wooden platforms for an endless view across the acacia grassland plains of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. Completely self-sufficient and eco-friendly, the en suite bathrooms have flushing eco-toilets and solar-heated bucket showers; the living area is an open-sided tent on a wooden deck with comfortable sofas . Dine under the stars in the shelter of the living tent overlooking the plains.

Edo's Camp

The Central Kalahari is a world apart from the hydrous northern regions of Botswana. Here animals survive for months on end without a drop of water and life follows a gentle, timeless course in a land as old the dinosaurs.
