Location and transfer
Approximately a 50 minute light aircraft flight from Maun to Tsigaro Airstrip and a 20 minute road transfer to San Camp.
Each of the seven tents has a four-poster bed and is decorated with Persian rugs and antique furniture. There is also an en suite bathroom with flushing toilet and shower, as well as a comfortable alfresco daybed for relaxing and absorbing the views.
Despite its barren landscape, the Makgadikgadi is home to a variety of species. Zebra, wildebeest and ostrich can often be seen on game drives, while there is also a chance to spot lion and elephant amongst the desert wildlife. Probably one of the biggest wildlife attractions to the area is the population of meerkats. Habituated by researchers, they are as curious of guests as they are of them, and often offer the perfect photo opportunities. As well as game drives, one of the best ways to experience the remoteness of the area is on horseback. Two-hour safaris are available for all ability levels, while experienced riders may want to head out for several days and sleep out under the stars.
San Camp works alongside four generations of San tribesmen, who you can join on an interactive bush walk. Learn how they survive in this harsh landscape with their knowledge of plants, desert wildlife and survival skills. Another unique experience, one of the best ways to discover the vastness of San Camp is to take a quad-bike expedition across the pans. The endless landscape stretches as far as the eye can see while. For the ultimate escape, you can camp out under the stars for two nights.
Described as one of Africa’s most romantic camps, the remote location of San Camp is the ideal place for couples to spend quality time together. The tents, furnished with antiques and four-poster beds, exude romance, especially at night with lantern-lit pathways.
