Visit the Intu Africa Kalahari Game Lodge in Namibia to experience the solitude and beauty of the desert and meet the true indigenous people of the region, the Bushmen.
The Intu Africa Kalahari Game Lodge is run as a eco-tourism establishment in partnership with the !Kung community (descendants of the original inhabitants of the area). They use their traditional knowledge and skills to earn an income and provide for their families. The Intu Africa Kalahari Game Lodge is situated in the Intu Africa Kalahari Private Game Reserve – a wildlife sanctuary of 10 000 ha in the southwest of the Kalahari.
The Lodge is situated in the spectacular red sand dunes northeast of Mariental in Namibia. This area used to be the hunting ground of the Bushmen inhabitants. The blue sky turns a fiery red at sunset, and together with the silhouettes of camelthorn trees keeping watch in the night, your visit to the Intu Africa Kalahari Game Lodge will be unforgettable.
You can choose between four lodges at the Intu Africa Kalahari Game Lodge: the Zebra Kalahari Lodge, the Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge as well as the Suricate Tented Lodge. The Zebra Kalahari Lodge, situated on a grassy plain surrounded by acacia trees and red sand dunes, offers 8 standard rooms and 5 luxury suites. The Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge, set among a copse of camelthorn trees between the red sand dunes, offers 12 standard rooms. The Suricate Tented Lodge, on a red sand dune overlooking a wetland system, offers 11 luxury tents and one honeymoon tent. All of the above have en suite bathrooms. The rooms/suites at the Zebra and Camelthorn Kalahari Lodges are all air-conditioned, while the tents at the Suricate Tented Lodge have lounge areas and charming secluded open-air showers. The living area of each lodge offers a sun deck, swimming pool, restaurant, lounge, bar – and, of course, a giant camelthorn tree.
Guests at the Intu Africa Kalahari Game Lodge in Namibia can look forward to morning and evening guided game drives in the dunes or on the plains, sundowners in the fiery Kalahari sunsets, as well as romantic starlight dinners. But the highlight of your visit to the Intu Africa Kalahari Game Lodge in Namibia must surely be the early morning desert tracking walk accompanied by your !Kung guide. You will learn tricks of the tracking trade and listen to how the ancestors lived.
