San Camp Review

This collection of white tents is framed by Botswana's Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, in the depths of the Kalahari Desert. Six tents are solar-powered accommodations with outdoor showers and toilets, while another—dubbed the "the tea tent"—is a Persian rug–dotted welcome area, and another is dedicated to serving meals and hosting yoga classes. All are simple and were completely revamped and relaunched in 2011. What the property lacks 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 visits with local tribes, desert quad excursions, stargazing, and nocturnal wildlife spotting, along with twice-daily safari game drives.
