Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, Botswana
This remote desert safari camp is tucked beneath
Today, the camp retains its traditional flavor with 10 spacious Meru-style tents that gather around an airy, thatched-roof living space housing a library and dining area. Ample cushioned lounge seating invites guests to linger. Each airy canvas tent features authentic African furniture and textiles, canopied four-poster beds, colonial antiques and Moroccan kilims to keep your feet cozy. An en suite bathroom includes a flush toilet and hot and cold running water. Immerse yourself in the 19th-century atmosphere evoked by vintage maps and rich wood textures. Complementing the complete desert experience, indulge in a dip in the shaded plunge pool that invites you to cool off during a toasty afternoon.
Days at camp include private game drives, unparalleled stargazing and a visit to one of Africa’s largest and oldest baobab trees. Take in the glittering expanse of the dry Makgadikgadi Salt Pans on a quad bike expedition, then get up close and personal with a colony of habituated meerkats.
