The Kalahari Desert… A place of solitude and romance…stretching across Namibia, Botswana and South Africa, the 360,000 square miles of vast fossil desert lands make up what is known as the Kalahari Desert.
The name “OUTPOST” derives from the Tswana word meaning “great thirst”. Most of the desert is not considered true desert, due to the amount of rainfall the area receives. Although huge tracts of land provide excellent grazing areas after good rains, there is still a great deal of the desert that remains arid and covered by vast expanses of red sand.
Despite the arid climate and desolate landscape, the Kalahari Desert is dotted with many different species of plant life. The abundant, native acacia trees can be found throughout and various grasses provide sustenance for the desert-adapted wildlife. Remarkable, large nests of weaver birds can be found in the camelthorn trees.
Place of solitude, savannah like plains, golden sand dunes and an abundance of wildlife.These sceneries crowned with spectacular sunsets promise every visitor a taste of Africa at its finest. For the professional hunter there is an overwhelming choice of game namely kudu, oryx, eland, springbok, kudu, red hartebeest, zebra, giraffe, waterbuck, steenbok, duiker, warthog and more. For the less adventurous the contrasting natural beauty of the area is a feast for the senses. Sunset against the backdrop of camel-thorn trees perched amongst the vivid ochre and red dunes is spectacular!The private hunting lodge is located close to the Botswana border where one can frequently hear the Kalahari lions roar at night and the area is very secluded.
The lodge offers 4 generously sized premium bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. A patio overlooking the Kalahari landscape, a fire pit and small swimming pool which is always a welcome sight for visitors. The pictures speak for themselves!
A place of beauty and romance alike, governed by “skillful Bushmen and ferocious Kalahari Lions”. The Kalahari is a legend
