About Dinaka

Guests are accommodated in seven spacious twin and double-bedded safari tents, each en-suite bathroom has an indoor and outdoor shower, hot and cold running water and flush toilet. Families are accommodated in a two-bedroomed tent, sharing a spacious en-suite bathroom - ideal for families in this child-friendly camp. Dinaka's tents are well spaced and raised up on wooden decks giving the perfect vantage point over a permanent water hole.

Activities include morning and afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles, with afternoon game drives often continuing into the evening. Alternatively, you may get more up close and personal with nature on foot with guided bush walks. Birding is particularly spectacular as Dinaka hosts over 200 different bird species including the Kori Bustard and Crimson Breasted Shrike and a high concentration of Pale Chanting Goshawks.

The annual rains transform the arid desert landscape into a lush profusion of Kalahari vegetation, offering guests a unique insight into the lesser known desert experience. The Sleep Out Deck offers guests a panoramic view and the opportunity to spend the night under the magnificent African night sky.

Location

An exclusive private reserve hugging the northern edge of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Dinaka is host to one of the most unique bio-diversities in Southern Africa. This ever-changing desert landscape gives refuge to the Kalahari lion, springbok, Oryx and brown hyena. The camp itself was acquired in 2017 and provides the perfect start or finish to any discerning travellers Botswana safari.

How to get there

Dinaka will usually be accessed by light aircraft, although it could also be added as a part of a privately guided trip. Fly to Maun and then get a private charter to the Central Kalahari which takes about 1 hour

When to go

The best time to visit Botswana, if you are going to enjoy a safari, is during the dry season between May through October.. The animals wear camouflage (all of them) and when the grass is short, and the trees have less foliage, it's harder for them to hide and so easier for you to spot. The dry season also means that the wildlife is forced to congregate around permanent water holes, or go for a daily drink along the river banks.

Important Information

Connected by wooden walkways all areas of camp are accessible by wheelchair.

Children

Travelling with children

The child policy at Dinaka has not yet been fully formalised; however with the addition of the family tent it would seem that the lodge is aiming to be a family friendly destination.

Based on Ker and Downey's child policy elsewhere we are expecting Dinaka to welcome children 7 years and above.
