San Camp is located amongst scattered clusters of palm trees on a grass covered bay that overlooks the endless white salt sea of the extinct Makgadikagadi superlake. This area is located deep in the Kalahari Desert on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans, the largest saltpans in the world which directly adjoin the National Park.




This is an extremely fragile environment filled with fascination and interest. The management and guides have an approach of maximum care for the environment, and this is a destination for the true lover of remote experiences.


Accommodation at San Camp Makgadikgadi Pans



4 Twin and 2 double tents with en suite bathrooms and spacious verandah. The tents offer lots of space and the décor is stylish. You shower under the stars here using bucket showers - there's no running water or electricity, but somehow, in this immense nothingness, even a hot shower seems like an incredible treat.


Activities at San Camp Makgadikgadi Pans


During the summer months (November to April) the focus is on the thousands of zebra which have migrated from the Boteti River and Makgadikgadi Pans National Park immediately to the west. During these same months, the pans fill with water and attract numerous species of birds from flamingos to wattled cranes and pelicans. During the dry, or winter months, the migrations move westwards to the water available in the Boteti River but many desert-adapted creatures remain resident.

This is the domain of the brown hyaena, a shy and elusive creature, as well as suricates, aardvarks and small bustard species. Ralph Bousefield and his guides have made many important finds in the field of palaeontology, with stone implements and other evidence of Stone Age dwellers.
