Camping: For the more adventurous ....... an outdoor campsite.
An exiting bush camp has been added to what we offer on the 21st of
March 2002. This on-the-skin experience of the Kalahari offers nature lovers:

  • to sleep around a campfire
  • 8 luxury beds in four half-open huts
  • hot showers
  • excellent meals served at the camp or options to self-catering in a well equipped kitchen
  • we provide beds for more people around the campfire on request

We do take bookings for any number of people and give the camp to only one group at a time.



Gemsbok Camp: The latest addition to the facilities at Soetvlakte is Gemsbok camp. A facility aimed at the tourist who prefers to camp with a caravan, tent or just sleep under the open sky, next to a fire. This is a Kalahari experience with the luxury of warm showers and flushes toilets, ala Soetvlakte style, and right in the veldt.

A kitchen equipped with a fridge, a freezer, a microwave and kitchenware for 30 people, allow travellers to spend a night or more without unpacking. We provide firewood and will clean the kitchen once per day. Electricity is available at the centre point to recharge a fridge or freezer or even for electric curlers in the bush.

Our target group with this camp is for the camper or people on there way from or to Kgalagadi NP or Botswana.
The camp is 10 camp spots under the camel thorn trees where one to three tents or caravans can camp per tree, scattered over an area far enough that nobody will be to close to each other. The 10 showers and 5 toilets are placed in easy distance from the campsites.

Feedback from visitors is very positive on the space and the balance of facilities between luxury and an outdoor experience. Although this camp was planned for tented or caravan campers in mind, quite a few parties have opted to sleep around a fire and enjoy the predictable winter weather of the Kalahari
