Kalahari Plains Camp is a Classic Camp

Wildlife at Kalahari Plains Camp

Healthy wildlife populations are present in the area all year round, but with the advent of the summer rains, the desert comes to life. A plethora of plains game such as springbok and gemsbok converge in their hundreds to graze, followed by lion, one of the highest concentrations of cheetah in southern Africa and leopard. In winter, the Kalahari is a typical desert. General game is still easily seen, from the carnivores to wildebeest, red hartebeest and steenbok as well as small predators like black-backed jackal, Cape fox, honey badger and myriad mongoose species. Some 220 bird species have been recorded.

As recommended on TripAdvisor

“ Amazing staff make this place special. The "cabins" themselves were comfortable although somewhat hot in the middle of the day. By nightfall, the desert cools down a bit and sleeping is fine. Our highlights on safari included lions up close and personal and numerous antelope. ”
