The Lodge is designed with exclusivity and privacy at its core. The suites are positioned on the woodland’s edge with expansive views over the savannah, and each far from a neighbour.
The 1,000 square foot wood, thatch and clay structures are expansive and open-air without exposing guests to the elements.
Decorated with custom-made furniture, sourced and sometimes re-purposed pieces populate the space to form a harmonious and comfortable whole. The raised decks, constructed of sustainably farmed hardwoods, form the structure’s foundations.
Each suite is large and roomy and includes a wide teak deck around the pool. The suites are situated well away from each other, giving you the feeling of having your own home in Africa.
An extra King size bed draped in billowing mosquito nets forms the centre of each suite.
A beautiful fan on each ceiling, just above the bed keeps the air cool and, while there is always a refreshing breeze coming through the gaze windows at night, the temperature is always comfortable for sleeping even at the hottest time of the year.
A lounge area with a 150cm daybed sofa and coffee table can be used as a further sleeping area for children.
The spacious bathroom, with beautiful views over the Kalahari landscape, contains a generous free-standing bath and shower, double sinks and a private toilet.
An Engelbox safari fridge with ice cold drinks is provided in the room.
Each suite has its own private 4x6m swimming pool surrounded by a teak deck complete with sun lounges.
An outside staircase leads to the upper deck, under thatch but open to nature. Here, private dinners can be arranged, or, while away the day curled up on the woven daybed with a good book.
For the adventurous, sleep out at night on the woven daybed, with only a mosquito net between you and nature.
Two special “Fat bikes” are parked at the front door of each suite. You can cycle to the main guest area during the day, or venture out accompanied by one of our guides to explore the vast wilderness around the lodge. The bikes have extra large tyres and suspension making them easy to ride even through the thick sand.
The three spacious bush suites are light and airy, raised more than a metre off the ground on beautiful decks made from sustainable wood.
Located along the northern shore of a wooded island, each suite overlooks an ephemeral pan. The suites are positioned very near one of the waterholes allowing you to enjoy animal action, especially at night.
Each bush suite has twin beds which can be made as a extra king size bed, surrounded by billowing linen mosquito nets and an inviting en-suite bathroom with double basins, massage shower and toilet.
Each side of the bush suites can be opened up so there’s only the transparent netting between you and the bush, creating a natural flow of air and giving that feeling of being completely surrounded by nature.
The suites have a beautiful ‘star bath’ out on the seligna deck where you can admire the crystal clear Kalahari sky by night while bathing.
Complimentary, done on a daily basis.
The Lodge is powered by solar energy. The harnessed solar power is stored in deep cycle batteries, each of which delivers 220v electricity to the camp, 24 hours a day.
A set of universal plug points is available in each guest unit.
