Suricate Kalahari Tented Camp

Kalahari - southern Namibia

Suricate Tented Kalahari Lodge is situated in the Intu Afrika Kalahari Private Game Reserve. It is in a 10,000ha wildlife sanctuary, located in the south-western region of the Kalahari Desert, along the upper reaches of the Auob river system of Namibia. The expanse of the reserve is characterized by lofty ancient parallel red dunes sparsely covered by unique vegetation. The lodge itself is set on a red sand dune, overlooking a pan system.

There is a restaurant, lounge and pool and bar. Both the cozy African-style lounge that overlooks the vast grassy pans of the Auob river, and the pool deck, are perfect settings for guests to enjoy their drinks and meals. Alternately, wine and dine in the outdoor boma that looks out onto the vast grassy pans of the Auob River.

Stopover for a couple of nights in the privacy of the Kalahari savannah:

  • Standard Tents: 11 spacious walk-in style tents with intimate open-air bathroom, with hot and cold running water, flush toilet and shower. Twin beds, mosquito netting, tea/coffee station, a mini-bar and a safe are standard. Relax on the large deck with wooden table and chairs.
  • Honeymoon Tent: A luxurious and well-secluded romantic getaway with similar facilities to the Standard Tents plus your very own private pool.

Guests can explore the Kalahari in open 4x4 vehicles, partake in a dune sundowner, and join guided walks with bushman trackers/trained guides. There are opportunities to walk with Kalahari Bushman trackers, to discover their desert survival techniques. Many guests are captivated by the history of the ancient San people and thoroughly enjoy exploring the Kalahari in open 4x4 vehicles. This area also offers guests the opportunity to learn about a predator re-introduction programme.
