Welcome to Dqae Qare San Lodge
Dqãe Qare Game Reserve (7500ha) is situated in the Kalahari Desert approximately 24kms from Ghanzi and is a community based tourism project of the Bushmen (Ncoakhoe - meaning Red People) from D'Kar village. Dqãe Qare Game Reserve is owned by the people of D'Kar. The aim of the project is to create employment, preserve the Ncoakhoe indigenous knowledge through tourism activities and to generate income.
The original farm house has been converted to offer comfortable accommodation consisting of four en-suite rooms (candle light only and three rooms with electricity when generator is on.)
The four Bushman huts have proved to be popular with our clients.
The Bushlodge, situated 10km from the Guesthouse, consists of two rondavels, dinning deck and an open air kitchen. These facilities can be used as self-catering or fully catered units.
Join the staff as they collect various berries and plants for different uses. A very rewarding experience and a chance to gather knowledge on the riches of the Kalahari Desert.
Traditional Dancing and Story Telling:
Dancing and story telling has always played a very important role in the culture of the Bushmen. The community of D'kar are always excited to come out to the Reserve and share their traditional dancing with you. You are most welcome to join in!
For those wishing to delve a little into our traditional life style, we offer the "Bushman Experience" which is the opportunity of living with us in the veld and learning from the masters themselves. Practise the techniques developed long ago to allow us to survive the harsh environment of our homelands.
You can build your own grass hut, track game by reading the messages they leave in the sand, gather your food from the veld, start your own fire with traditional sticks, make jewelry from ostrich eggshell beads, learn to play our games and participate in our traditional dances. For the hardiest souls, you can do this in the true, bushman way with no modern facilities, or you can base yourself at the guesthouse or campsite and participate in your choice of cultural activities.
The Game Reserve is well stocked and you may see some of the following species of game and a wide variety of birds from your own vehicle or using the reserve's safari vehicles: Eland, Gemsbok, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Giraffe, Impala, Springbok, Kudu, Ostrich, Steenbok, Duiker, Warthog, Cheetah (migratory), Leopard (migratory), Caracal, Serval, Black Backed Jackal, Brown Hyena, Ardvark and numerous smaller species of mammals.
A multi-day cultural experience is available on request where you will participate in learning past skills and indigenous knowledge from members of the Bushmen community.
