It was truly fantastic to arrive in the middle of a desolate desert and see a tiny white spot in the distance materialise into an amazing camp.

About San Camp
In the northeastern region of the Kalahari Basin contains the Makgadikgadi Pans – this huge expanse of pristine, sugary white landscape is bigger than Switzerland. Once a large river-fed lake, the Makgadikgadi Pans now lie saline and empty. The pans are littered with stone tools and artefacts dated from between 2,000 to 500,000 years old! During the wet season 35-75,000 zebra and wildebeest migrate into the area with regular sightings of lion, cheetah and other predators who follow in their wake, this is southern Africa’s last surviving zebra and wildebeest migration. Hundreds of thousands of flamingo appear from nowhere to feed as long as the water lasts. Also a permanent haven for desert species such as the captivating and engaging meerkat and the elusive brown hyaena, the third rarest carnivore in the world!
