New camp! DINAKA opening March 2018. Ker & Downey Botswana successfully acquires a new camp for the 2018 season.
An exclusive private reserve hugging the northern edge of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Dinaka is host to one of the most unique biodiversities in Southern Africa. This ever-changing desert landscape gives refuge to the Kalahari lion, springbok, Oryx and brown hyena. The camp provides the perfect start or finish to any discerning travelers Botswana safari.
Situated alongside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the focus of activities at Dinaka is exploring the Kalahari experience with wildlife ranging from giraffe to the antelope, small mammals like the honey badger, bat eared fox and porcupine to predators including the Kalahari lion, cheetah, leopard and brown hyena. Activities include morning and afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles, with afternoon game drives often continuing into the evening. Our window seat guarantee ensures no more than four guests per vehicle when out on game drives. Alternatively, you may get more up close and personal with nature along with an insight into the San Bushmen culture with guided bush walks. Birding is particularly spectacular as Dinaka hosts over 200 different bird species including the Kori Bustard and Crimson Breasted Shrike and a high concentration of Pale Chanting Goshawks.
For those a little more adventurous spend the night beneath the vast Kalahari sky at the Dinaka Sleep Out Deck.
Dinaka, meaning “horns”, is a private reserve located on the northern boundary of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. Year-round water holes result in spectacular photographic opportunities either from the vehicle, on foot or one of several hides and underground bunker. The perfect contrast to a stay in the Okavango Delta, with an added hidden treasure!
