Kalahari Bush Breaks

Kalahari Bush Breaks

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.

Of a stopover you would be churlish to ask for more than a comfortable bed, a hot shower and good meal. Not so at Kalahari Bush Breaks: raise the bar and pull off the highway near the Namibia-Botswana border to enjoy a night in the bush as if you're still on safari.

Surrounded by Kalahari grassland with picturesque acacia trees and well out of earshot from the road, Kalahari Bush Breaks is a welcome oasis after what is for most a rather long and uneventful drive no matter which direction you're going.

Accommodation is in a large thatch and wood construction (Wouter was an architect in his former life) with en suite bathrooms and a view of the waterhole around which the lodge is built. Food is distinctly Namibian, which means big portions of grass-fed beef (you're in cattle country here) and free range, organic venison always with full-bodied South African wines to match.

Though you'll likely be passing through the Kalahari en route to Botswana and Vic Falls in the east or Namibia to the west, if you can save a few hours' energy for an activity it will be well worth it. The lodge, once a cattle farm, is now home to a variety of typically Kalahari wildlife including the graceful oryx, the elegant springbok, ostrich, zebra and smaller antelope; birds are a feature here with many raptors claiming dominion over the open plains.

The lodge has a self-drive game drive trail marked out (4WD only alas) and, with no predators, walking trails, birding and stargazing are wonderful ways to experience the bush and stretch those travel-weary legs. The main lodge overlooks a floodlit waterhole and competent riders can book horses in advance for a magical wilderness ride.
