A luxury tented camp in the wilderness of Botswana's Makgadikgadi Pans.

San Camp is a unique romantic camp made of the Stewart Granger Memorial Collection of 1940s safari tents. They are en-suite with hot and cold running water and flush toilets. They have four poster beds with mosquito net canopies. There is no electricity but there are paraffin lamps, giving a comforting glow at night. There are six of these tents in white canvas and set in a complete wilderness location in Makgadikgadi.

The camp is in a private area overlooking the vistas of the open salt pans, dotted with tall palm trees and endless views of grasslands which were formed 5 - 7 million years ago. This is now the site of fascinating fossils and ancient baobab trees.

The Kalahari desert region is home to fascinating species such as the Brown Hyaena, meerkats, ostrich and Gemsbok Oryx. Guests venture onto the pans on quad bikes so as not to disturb the surface of the ground with larger vehicles. Once out on the pans, there is nothing .... no noise, no trees, just the crunch of your boots.

The emphasis of a visit here is to understand this fascinating eco-system and learn from the guides and the bushmen about the desert adapted animals, tracking them and learning about the fossils and ancient lands.
