Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge
In the vast Intu Afrika Kalahari Game Reserve, in southern Namibia, the Camelthorn Kalahari lodge provides you with accommodation on the doorstep of the astoundingly beautiful and serene Kalahari.
Wake up to a red glow from the sand dunes which surround this lodge and its 12 en-suite chalets. Natural materials like thatch, wood and reeds help to keep each room cool, especially in the summer when temperatures can reach 45°C. The swimming pool and shaded areas between the chalets offer some respite from the sun, when you get back from a day of animal spotting in the reserve.
The main lodge area and restaurant overlook a water hole where giraffe, zebra and antelope come to drink. Make sure you take the time to see the enclosure which houses the two Kalahari lions, a predator which has recently been reintroduced to the reserve as part of their conservation efforts.
One of the distinguishing factors of this lodge is that you get to explore the bushveld with a San Bushman. Introducing you to the culture and way of life of this almost forgotten people, like hand-made weapon demonstrations, a look at some medicinal plants found in this area and animal tracking techniques – you will get some insight into what it takes to live in this harsh terrain.
Game viewing is done on foot, in 4x4 vehicles or you can experience the bush from the back of a quad-bike which is a great mode of transport in the sandy Kalahari.
12 En-suite chalets; air-conditioning; pool; lounge; bar area; landing strip for light aircraft
Walks with bushman trackers; game drives in game viewing vehicles or on quad-bike; sundowners on the red sand dunes.
