Edo's Camp is located in a 120,000 hectare game conservancy, in the western Kalahari Desert. This private sanctuary is home to six of Botswana's endangered white rhino population, as well as numerous species of plants, birds and mammals, many unique to the region. Also resident are the true indigenous people of Southern Africa, the San, who provide a fascinating cultural perspective of traditional life.
This remote camp overlooks an active waterhole and accommodates guests in four two-bedded luxury tents set on decks and under thatch, which provide welcome protection from the desert sun. Each tent has en-suite facilities with a shower, flush toilet as well as a bath for additional comfort.
Game activities at Edo:
- Daily game drives, together with a personal guide in specially designed vehicles, provide guests the chance of viewing many species of mammal only found in this desert environment.
- Other activities include walks with San bushman tracking white rhino on foot as well as joining the women and children of the village in gathering edible roots and plants – a fascinating insight into their traditional life. It is also possible just to relax in front of the waterhole as a steady parade of antelope quench their thirst, the best way to enjoy sundowners in the Kalahari!
- You are offered the unique experience of tracking rhino on foot. The white rhino in this area were introduced and have successfully integrated into the habitat, producing 2 healthy offspring in 2005.
- Edo's Camp offers a rich cultural experience where you can meet two diverse lifestyles of the people in the area, firstly the San Bushmen that reside in a small community within the grounds of the conservancy and the optional activity of witnessing a traditional bushman dance. It is also possible for those staying several days to visit the nearby museum at D'Kar.
A percentage of the nightly rate is donated to a local orphanage/Day Care Centre established by the owner's of Edo's.
