Safari Accommodation

Wilderness Safaris Kalahari Plains Lodge
Canvas tented rooms raised off the ground, with walkways on sand. Being located in the desert, the canvas and roofs have been specially insulated to keep out most of the heat during the day and the cold during the night.

During winter months hot water bottles and extra blankets are provided.
Each room consists of en-suite facilities with shower, twin hand basins, electronic safe, mosquito net, coffee and tea making facilities, writing desk and chair, easy chair and a shaded veranda downstairs.

Seasonal bathrobes, slippers, liquid soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, body lotion, room spray, insect repellent, insect spray, mosquito coil, shower caps, vanity kit with cotton tip swabs and cotton wool pads, sewing kit, tissue dispenser, laundry bag and umbrella are supplied in each tent.

No air-conditioning, however, a ceiling fan is provided in all the rooms.
Private rooftop area for sleep-outs, to enjoy the night skies and allowing good views over the pan and plains (weather permitting).

Tau Pan Lodge
The sixth night will be spent at Tau Pan Lodge, with 9 environmentally adapted en-suite tents including 1 family tent are set on raised decks, affording the same spectacular views over the plains. Each has an indoor and outdoor shower, double-basin vanity, open wardrobe, King-sized double bed, living area and writing desk.

The main area of the camp is set around the fireplace, which is the ideal spot for game viewing down to the waterhole. A telescope is also provided for guests’ use. The bar, lounge, curio shop and dining area all encircle the fire place.

Letaka Safaris
The rest of your stay you will be camping with Letaka Safaris: The tents are 4 x 3m Sahara style tents with high roof with a 2 x 3m en-suite bathroom and a 2 x 3m covered area in front of the tent. The tents are fitted with solid base camp beds made up with mattresses, sheets, duvets and pillows. The tents have en-suite long drop toilet facilities and a bucket shower at the rear of the tent. Showers can be ordered as hot, cold or warm and the water is heated in a bucket on the fire. Showers may be taken at any time but on Kalahari safaris the guide withholds the right to limit water use and showering depending upon the availability of water. Both hand towels and bath towels are supplied for the guests’ convenience along with conditioning shampoo and shower gel but please note that guests should bring their own personal items.

Each tent has an oil/paraffin lamp on the veranda and in the bathroom and within the tent itself, a LED rechargeable camp light is supplied along with a side table in the sleeping area and in the bathroom. Although each tent has lighting and there are lamps strategically around the camp for navigation, an essential tool for your safari is a headlamp which lets you read a book at night in your tent or catch up with your safari journal as you listen to the sounds of the wild outside!
