Kang is a village approximately 380 km north-west of Botswana’s capital, Gaborone, on the Trans Kgalagadi Highway. This is a bitumen surface road, which means that it can be used in all weather conditions. It is here where you will find the Echo Lodge: on the junction of the Kang–Hukuntsi–Tsetseng and Ghanzi–Sekoma Roads. The Echo Lodge is about halfway between Windhoek in Namibia and Johannesburg in Botswana. It is therefore a perfect overnight stop along the Trans Kgalagadi Highway.
The Tourism Grading Council of South Africa has awarded three-star status to the Echo Lodge in Kang. Guests are accommodated in 7 twin or 3 double airconditioned chalets dotted through the well-kempt grounds. All are en-suite, and equipped with DSTV, tea/coffee-making facilities, a small cupboard and a reading table. The central airconditioned thatched building houses a restaurant with seating for 100 guests, as well as a bar. There is also a charming ouside dining area if you prefer your meals al fresco. The menu at the Echo Lodge is a la carte, but a buffet option is offered for large groups or during the high season.
The Echo Lodge is popular among tourists on their way to or from Ghanzi and South Africa. Echo Lodge in Kang is only 50 km from the Central Kgalagadi Game Reserve and only 200 km from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Apart from tourists, business executives as well as officials from the Botswana Government regularly use the well-equipped conference facilities at the Echo Lodge.
If you are looking for something special to take home from your trip to Botswana, the curio shop at the Echo Lodge focuses on Bakgalagadi and Basarwa indigenous art and crafts. These are indigenous tribes of the area.
Internet access is available, as well as a same day laundry service. If you prefer to fly in or out, there is an airstrip located on the eastern part of Kang in Botswana.
