4Cs Projects at Kalahari Plains Camp

A number of conservation initiatives are in place here, from research projects involving the unique Kalahari fauna to working with local communities and lowering our carbon footprint.


Central Kalahari Wild Dog Project

There is little knowledge of wild dog in the CKGR region, however wild dog packs are reasonably often sighted and due to its large size (52 500 sq km) the area is likely to sustain a significant number of wild dog packs. Research is necessary for their protection.For more:

Okavango-Kalahari Wild Dog Research Project

A significant threat for wild dog is the potential spread of disease from domestic dogs. This project aims at determining their movements and then focusing a concentrated canine disease vaccination programme on domestic dogs in these villages.For more:

Community Engagement

Kalahari Plains has actively engaged the Basarwa (Bushman) people to ensure they can benefit from the ecotourism industry. Thus, the majority of staff members were sought out in the local villages and trained to work in the camp.

Reducing Energy Consumption

In keeping with Wilderness’ objectives of using technologies and techniques towards reducing energy consumption and fuel use, and other resource-use reductions, the very latest in solar water heating and photovoltaic gathering technology has been installed, as well as an ancient yet effective water-harvesting technique.
