The Kalahari Desert in Namibia or Dorsland in Afrikaans is the second largest desert in Namibia after the Namib. The Kalahari is not a true desert as it supports a number of plants and animals, thus making it ideal for game drives and safaris.
Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge is set in a secluded valley between two red sand dunes and hidden amongst ancient camel-thorn trees.
Accommodation and Facilities:
Each air-conditioned chalet has an en-suite bathroom including all the modern conveniences, offering a comfortable getaway from the desert heat. The Lodge consists of a thatched main building, dining area and a boma overlooking a natural stone pool, where you can relax in the shade of a large Camel-thorn tree.
The Intu Afrika Kalahari Private Game Reserve is a 10 000 ha wildlife sanctuary located in the south-western region of the Kalahari, along the upper reaches of the Auob river system of Namibia. The expanse of the reserve is characterized by lofty ancient parallel red dunes sparsely covered by unique vegetation.
Grassy plains peppered with centuries old camel-thorn trees commonly known as “dune streets” or valleys, separate the dunes providing refuge for diverse animal and bird life indigenous to the Kalahari.
Guests can explore the Kalahari in open 4 x 4 vehicles and take guided walks with Bushman trackers and trained guides.
Be seduced by the charms of an alluring landscape; get up close to lion, giraffe, zebra and other smaller desert animals and birdlife.
Learn about the predator re-introduction programme or take a walk in the Kalahari with a bushman tracker and learn his desert survival secrets and hear the history of the ancient San people.
Seize the opportunity of a sunrise or sunset walk through the rolling red sand dunes, led by a Bushman tracker.
To cool off guests can relax around the pool or in the refined lounge overlooking the waterhole.
The stark splendour of this Kalahari thirst-land will find a special place in your heart.
