A choice of Botswana's finest destinations...

San Camp

San Camp is situated on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, the remnant of an extinct lake that once covered most of Botswana.

Seven classic white tents stand majestically on the shore of an enormous sparkling salt pan, each tent sheltered by a cluster of desert palms and with its en-suite bathroom.

The central mess tent contains a small natural history museum and library. Tea can be served in the sheltered tea tent spread with cushions. There is also a tented yoga pavilion.

San Camp is erected and taken down each year and there is no swimming pool.

Getting there

Driving is possible to San Camp with a 4WD - if desired with a guide to be met at Planet Baobab near Gweta.

GPS location of the camp is 22.3285° S, 24.6849° E.

There are also charter flights from Maun to the airstrip at San Camp, from where it will be a 10-minute game drive to the camp.
