Exploring the Kalahari Desert

Explore the Desert

The Lodge offers daily game drives in our vast Kalahari conservancy area.

Early morning and late afternoon is the optimal time for game drives as the temperatures are milder and the wildlife is more active.

It is important to us that you feel free and enjoy your stay at your own pace and preferences. If you would prefer to sleep in we will happily organise a later start to your game drive.

Kalahari wildlife includes elephants, brown hyena, leopard, gemsbok, wildebeest, an occasional lion but also meerkats, mangouste, honey badgers and aardvark. We are fortunate to have two packs of the rare wild dogs close to the lodge which visit us from time to time.

The Lodge is located in an area where there are no other lodges. Enjoy private safaris where you will drive for hours without seeing another single soul and really escape from the rest of the world.

Walking safaris with the Kalahari Bushmen

Walking Safaris

Experience the African bush as you never have before.

Once you alight from your vehicle and your feet touch the earth, you will be surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of nature. It is here that you will discover a whole new world, mysteries that most visitors never have the privilege to see.

Our skilled and experienced guides will escort you through the bush and introduce you to the small wonders of the Kalahari. A truly fascinating experience where you become part of the wilderness.

Arriving by helicopter for a walking safari with the Bushmen

Visit a Bushman Village

The Lodge at Feline Fields is located in the heart of Bushman territory, the first people of the Kalahari.

Feline Fields collaborate with the Bushman community and offers through this a glimpse into their astonishing wisdom, spirituality and their partnership with nature which ensured survival over millennia.

Our guests has the opportunity to interact with individuals nominated by the community to join us and our guests.

Experiences range from bush walks under Bushman guidance where they teach about veld foods and natural medicines and culture and folklore to an overnight fly-camp where you’ll be invited into their inner circle to witness, or partake in, the famous Bushman Trance Dance.
