Fantastic Family Safari Camp in BotswanaGweta, Central District (Botswana)
A return to the traditional safari style camps of the old explorers, it is the best way to experience the Makgadikgadi in a fresh and affordable way.
It is the ideal camp for those who want fun, comfort, style and adventure. The camp accepts children of all ages and makes for a fantastic family safari destination.
This traditional bush camp has ten spacious Meru tents, comprising six twin tents, three double tents and one family unit which has two adjacent tents, accommodating two guests in each with an inter-leading bathroom.
All guest tents have en-suite covered bathrooms, hot and cold running water and flush tiolets along with four poster beds, crisp cotton sheets, rich textiles, Moroccan kilims, and hot water bottles in winter.
A thatched central library, living and dining area featuring an eclectic mix of original African furniture and textiles paired with traditional campaign style pieces and colonial antiques provides the perfect area in which to relax and enjoy the serenity of this enchanting area.
For those who’d like to cool off, or enjoy a lazy siesta in or out of the sun, the thatched swimming pool pavilion is ideal.
The camp's very talented chef is noted for his tasty soups and particularly for his "Pilli-Pilli Ho-Ho," a lethal concoction of chillies marinated in sherry and gin. Smeared over one's breakfast eggs, it's just the thing to sharpen sleep-dulled wits in preparation for whatever adventures await! Read More

Located in the center of Southern Africa and covering an estimated area of 581,730 square kilometers making it the size of France, Botswana is bordered by Zambia and Zimbabwe to the northeast, Namibia to the north and west, and South Africa to the south and southeast. At Kazungula, four countries - Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia - all meet at a single point mid-stream in the Zambezi River. The shortest border in the world!
The vast Kalahari Desert, the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world, covers 84% of Botswana, extending from the Orange River in South Africa to the equator in Gabon. Read More
Venturing far into the center of the Makgadikgadi, on 4x4 quad bikes, we are able to explore remote archaeological sites, periodically discovering never-before-documented fossil beds of extinct giant zebra and hippo. The fact that you can travel across the pans at great speed and still arrive nowhere only underlines the pans immensity.
A safari is a complete desert experience focusing on species unique to the area such as aardvark, gemsbuck and springbuck. It is the only place where guests are virtually guaranteed to see the rare and elusive brown hyena and be able to walk through the Kalahari with a gang of habituated but, wild meerkats!
