Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

To the eye it’s not much but a thatch and face brick façade that seems to blend into the sandy surrounds, but to the soul, this place is magic. A respite and a breath of fresh air.

You’re welcomed here by Neeltjie, her family and the staff that call this remote destination home. Each loves it as their own and it’s telling in their warm smiles and generous hospitality. The San Bushman were the first to settle here centuries ago and all these years later, they are still happy to be here and happy to have you visit.

The lodge itself is made up of eight spacious chalets with ensuite bathrooms, four individual campsites and a main area which has a cosy indoor and outdoor dining area, bar, swimming pool and campfire. It’s homely and comfortable offering all the conveniences you’d require, being pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Where nowhere is the vast expanse of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve of central Botswana.

It’s a harsh area dominated by mostly vast grasslands, hence the name: Grassland Safari Lodge, and yet it is teeming with wildlife from giraffes, wildebeest and zebras to cheetah, hyena and wild dogs. It’s the second largest reserve in the world, easily the most remote reserve within southern Africa and a cultural hot spot. If your interest is to experience how the oldest surviving indigenous hunter-gatherers have thrived for over 30,000 years, then Grassland Safari Lodge is top choice.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities


Two activities per person per night are included in the rates. You can pick and choose from any of the main activities on offer. Bushman activities are front and centre here but that’s not all that’s on offer. Pick from the following: a comprehensive San (Bushman) experience; San toolmaking and games; morning and afternoon game drives; the predator protection project; rhino tracking and horseback safaris (for experienced riders only and must be booked in advance).

Guests that are camping may also book and join activities but this must be booked at least seven days prior and are all done at an additional cost.
