Classic white tents stand majestically, perched on the shore of an enormous sparkling salt pan, each sheltered by a cluster of stately desert palms. Spectacular vistas, soothing and serene – Pared down safari elegance with minimal ecological impact, it is the nothingness that attracts… San Camp also runs almost entirely on solar energy, thus dramatically reducing the use of fossil fuels. The perfect place to relax, unwind and retreat.
San offers 4 twin and 2 double tents with en-suite bathrooms and spacious verandah. Tents are spacious and stylish. Beds are replete with cool and crunchy cotton sheets, feather bedding and hot water bottles.
San Camp is open only for 6 months of the year during the dry season (16th of April to 15th of October). Activities are unique and plentiful – Like quad biking across the lunar expanse of the pans. Or lying out on the pans as the sun sets, and watching the planetarium show unfold with horizon-to-horizon stars. How about getting unbelievably up close and personal with the family of meerkats that was filmed for the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency! Or spend time walking and interacting with a group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen and gain insight into their ancient culture.
Game drives to experience unique desert wildlife. There is an excursion out to see Chapman’s Baobab, campsite of Livingstone & Selous: one of the three largest and oldest trees in Africa. And then relax at the end of an intense and exciting safari in the yoga pavilion.
