Dinaka Safari Lodge offers the ultimate in accommodation, bordering the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. All inclusive rates from $535.00 per person.

Dinaka Safari Lodge invites you to lose yourself in an African sky – whether you are captured by a sunset, dazzled by the diamond-dotted night sky above or in awe of the high-noon endless soft blue.

Situated in the heart of Botswana – on the northern border of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve  – the 3 Star Ker & Downey Dinaka Safari Lodge offers an explosion of colourful birdlife, herds of graceful antelope, and prides of Africa’s fiercest predators – amongst them the Kalahari black-maned lion.

The constantly changing face of this landscape – from stark wilderness in winter, to lush vegetation in summer – makes Dinaka an African holiday to be remembered.

A small lodge of 7 tented chalets on raised decks, under thatch, Dinaka Safari Lodge is able to provide you with real home comforts without losing its authentic bush feel.

Each tented chalet nestles under the branches of ‘Purple Pod’ trees; blending in with the natural surroundings, and overlooking the waterhole. Each has an en-suite bathroom, with a vanity, basin and mirror, an open air shower and flush toilet, and a carpeted bedroom with a king size bed or 2 single beds, covered with white linen, bedside tables and lamps, a wardrobe with a small safe and easy chairs.Two of the seven tents are suitable for families.

The spacious main lodge is furnished with comfort in mind and provides guests with lounges, a dining and bar area, and a splash pool for those hotter months.
