Overview of Deception Valley Lodge

Situated in a private concession on the border of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Deception Valley Lodge offers an authentic African theme, while the surrounding area offers excellent wildlife sightings. The lodge is an oasis of comfort in this rugged terrain and promises a memorable experience of Botswana’s wilderness.

Embark on guided walks with the Bushmen to learn about their culture and hunting techniques, and about the unique flora and fauna of the area. Head out on day or night game drives, occasionally going off-road to follow tracks. Alternatively, sit back and relax with sundowners while admiring the flaming sunsets and star-filled sky.

Such a special and unique experience. The Central Kalahari will add a different aspect to your trip with a focus on the lesser known and rare species of animals as well the way of life of the Kalahari bushmen. Definitely something not to be missed..
