overview

Set on the northern border of Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Haina Kalahari Lodge has the advantage of being able to offer you not just a fantastic introduction to the wildlife of the Kalahari Desert but also to its human inhabitants, the San Bushmen, who have lived side by side with big game for thousands of years. After all, the Kalahari is one of Botswana’s best destinations for game viewing, a landscape that is home to giraffe, antelope, lions, leopards and cheetahs as well as a wealth of smaller and more unusual animals such as brown hyenas, bat-eared foxed and honey badgers.

Accommodating a maximum of 20 guests, Haina Kalahari Lodge prides itself on a flexible and diverse approach to its safari activities. You can choose between game drives, guided bush walks, bird watching adventures and cultural interactions with local San villagers. There are also night drives on offer as well as optional excursions into the vast Central Kalahari Game Reserve itself, and the chance to explore the Kalahari by quad bike (ATV).

It is a comfortable and well-appointed lodge with plenty of facilities – there is a pool and a gym plus battery-recharging facilities and spa treatments. You can choose between different room types and will enjoy great cuisine served under some of the most star-filled night skies you will ever see: in the Kalahari, the stars really do seem to go on forever.

Dining

The day begins early with tea, coffee and biscuits served at your tent before your morning game drive or walk. You return to a hearty late-morning brunch and a welcome siesta before high tea is served mid-afternoon before your second activity. Drinks and snacks are served at sunset while you are out on the drive and then you return for a 3-course dinner.

Luxury Tent

The camp’s six Luxury Tents are each shaded by a slatted canopy and comprise a large bed with mosquito netting and a private bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers. Illuminated by solar power and enjoying gas-heated hot water, each tent has plenty of comfortable details such as tea-and-coffee-making facilities plus bathrobes, slippers and complimentary toiletries.

Small groups will enjoy the practicality of the Family Tent, made up of two Luxury Tents with inter-connecting viewing decks.
