Part of the Wilderness Safaris group this camp is perfectly placed to enjoy the best that this African wilderness can offer.

Game viewing at Kalahari Plains Camp
- Game moves around the area of the camp to a larger or lesser degree throughout the year thanks the varied habitats found in the region. In the drier months the Kalahari is a desert type eco system. General game is still around and can be easily viewed, but it is summer and onset of rains that the Kalahari really comes to life. The grasses sprout and transform the landscape into a bright green carpet which attracts hundreds if not thousands of springbok and gemsbok which come to graze.
- The Kalahari is reknown for the vast herds of springbok, the magnificent black maned lions and the high concentrations of cheetah who are particularly suited to hunting in these wide open areas.
- Morning and afternoon game drives are offered at the camp. As the lodge falls within the National Park, guided walks, off road driving and night drives are not permitted.
- The Kalahari has long been the domain of the Bushmen and many of the staff at the camp are part of this ancient clan. Guests may do an interpretive "Bushman Walk” with our staff where they will learn about their unique culture.
