Classic white tents perched on the shore of an enormous sparkling salt pan, each sheltered by a cluster of stately desert palms. Spectacular vistas, soothing and serene – pared down safari elegance with minimal ecological impact, it is the nothingness that attract. San Camp also runs almost entirely on solar energy, thus dramatically reducing the use of fossil fuels. The perfect place to relax, unwind and retreat.
San Camp offers 4 twin and 2 double tents with en-suite bathrooms and spacious veranda. Tents are spacious and stylish. Beds are replete with cool and crunchy cotton sheets, feather bedding and hot water bottles.
San Camp is open only for 6 months of the year during the dry season (16th of April to 15th of October). Visitors at San Camp are encouraged to go quad biking across the lunar expanse of the pans, lie out on the pans as the sun sets, and watch the planetarium show unfold with horizon-to-horizon stars. Get unbelievably up close and personal with meerkats. Spend time walking and interacting with a group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen and gain insight into their ancient culture.
Other activities that can be arranged include game drives to experience unique desert wildlife. Visit Chapman’s Baobab, campsite of Livingstone & Selous: one of the three largest and oldest trees in Africa. Relax at the end of an intense and exciting safari in the yoga pavilion.
