Fodor's Review

It's all about the view from this collection of snow-white tents looking out over the surreal, stark landscape of Botswana's Makgadikgadi salt pans. Recline amidst a sea of Persian rugs and matching cushions as you munch on miniature tea-time scones, gazing out at the infinite horizon, or make the most of the therapeutic effect of nature's minimalism in the neighboring yoga tent. Accommodation is in six ensuite tents, lit by paraffin lanterns with solar-powered hot water and furnished in old East-African style. The whole camp was completely revamped and relaunched in 2011 and what it may lack in sumptuousness, it makes up for in service. Guides are knowledgeable and personable, and the food, exquisitely prepared, is always served with a smile. Guided activities include fascinating walks with San–Bushmen, desert quad excursions, stargazing, and nocturnal wildlife spotting, along with safari game drives.
