Botswana's Makgadikgadi Pans are a serious rival to the famous Bolivian salt flats offering the largest soda lake in the world and none of the crowds that descend on Bolivia. It's one of the most secluded locations in the world, which boasts an abundance of wildlife: zebras, wildebeest, gemsbok, lions, and much more. The animal that steals the show is undeniably the friendly meerkat which can often be spotted here.
San Camp is at the edge of the salt pans. It's a small family-run desert camp dedicated to bringing back the old-fashioned safari style. Here luxury is happily married to simplicity. The canvas tents filled with colonial-style furniture will take you back in time to the blissful era before mass tourism.
There are many ways to explore the salt pans and the Kalahari Desert from San Camp. You can choose a luxury game drive, a walk with bushmen from the San tribe, or an adrenaline-inducing quadbike ride. Afterward, don't forget to treat yourself to some fantastic baked goods in the tea tent. Who knew you could get delicious brownies right in the desert!
At the end of an adventure-filled day, guests gather at a long table to enjoy dinner together and exchange safari stories. The evening often extends late into the night with bonfires and stargazing.
