Information

Accommodation in the Kalahari at Edo's Camp from BWP 2999.00 per person sharing a Meru Tent including all Meals.

Edo's Camp Safaris in the Kalahari has operated in the safari and game conservancy industry for over a decade.  We provide professional, high-class safaris, where adventure combines with an intimate atmosphere and skilled staff members do their best to meet all your needs and make you feel at ease.

However, our focus on sustainable tourism is a big feather in our cap. At Edo's Camp we strive to take our clients on a thrilling journey to cultural education and game conservation in order to give them a real insight into local communities, conservation and sustainable life in the Kalahari Desert.

Let yourself be led to a meeting with the local San people of the nearby village and be taught on medicinal and edible desert plants and roots, visit the nearby Children’s Home or experience the emotion of tracking one of our rhinos on foot.

Accommodation at Edo’s Camp is in luxury Meru tents, classically African, overlooking an extensive pan lined with ancient Leadwood trees and incorporating a year round waterhole.

We also have two chalets built with local stone and budget rooms off the pan, including a four bed family unit.

The central office is equipped with a mobile phone booster and is adjacent to a professional kitchen where our excellent locally trained chef conjures up superb dishes focusing on local specialties and wherever possible, including game meat and veld products such as the delectable Bushman truffle and nutritious Morama bean.

Our dining area is a professionally fitted Meru Style tent overlooking the floodlit pan and is an idyllic setting for dreamy African dining. Coffee after dinner can be enjoyed in our lapa area at the edge of the waterhole.

Botswana offers a truly unique African experience, presenting a wonderful wilderness for the enjoyment of all those who seek to reach just that little bit further into Africa for a holiday of a lifetime!

ACTIVITIES

At Edo's we offer a combination of culture and wildlife and bring these two together in our unique offer of Rhino Tracking with the San Bushmen. Our activities include:

Rhino Tracking during game drives and with San Bushmen trackers is a highlight at Edo's. This is truly a unique experience. Our initial population has now grown to 18 animals and is one success story in the tragic demise of rhino elsewhere.

Game Drives with access to approximately 50,000 hectares of game conservancy where large numbers of plains game have been stocked including White Rhino, Giraffe, Eland, Kudu, Waterbuck, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Springbuck, Red Hartebeest, Warthog and elusive predators including Cheetah, Leopard and Brown Hyena. Sunsets over this breath-taking landscape are unforgettable.

Guided Bush Walks with a guide and San tracker where you will be amazed at the knowledge these diminutive hunters have of this seemingly harsh desert environment. On average a hunter/gatherer can identify 80 species of plant including delectable edible plants and fascinating medicinal plants.

Traditional Dance with a local San Bushmen dance group is a unique experience. This dance is truly ancient and complex involving polyphonic chant and clapping with healers shuffling around the fire wearing moth chrysalis rattles.

San Village tour to the local settlement where some 2000 San live. Here we find a museum and a flourishing contemporary San Art Project where guests can purchase artefacts and art direct from the artists.

San Cultural Skills demonstrations can also be arranged including making fire by friction, making rope and then setting traps for birds, live if guests prefer or demonstration only.

Paolo Zanichelli's Children's Home is located on the property and was started by the founders. The home caters for needy and orphaned local children and provides early education, wholesome meals and the basis of life skills for the future. Guests are welcome to bring donations in cash or clothing for the home.
