Dinaka Safari Lodge
Dinaka Safari Lodge is located in a private game reserve adjacent to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana. Dinaka is host to one of the most unique biodiversities in Southern Africa and its ever-changing landscape gives refuge to the Kalahari lion, springbok, oryx and brown hyena to name a few. This camp provides the perfect start or finish to any discerning travellers safari.
With only eight luxurious safari tents, each with ensuite bathrooms which boast indoor and outdoor showers, this camp offers privacy and exclusivity. This child friendly option hosts families in a two-bedroomed tent, sharing a spacious ensuite bathroom. Dinaka’s tents are well spaced and raised up on wooden decks giving the perfect vantage point over a permanent water hole. The camp also offers the opportunity to overnight on a ‘sleep out deck’, which is a once in an incredible experience and highly recommended.
Although the Central Kalahari is technically a desert, the park has a large variety of habitats of bushveld (tree and bush savanna) which thrives in the Kalahari sand. Bird-lovers will be spoilt for choice with the region showcasing over two hundred different bird species throughout the year, including the large concentrations of Pale Chanting Goshawks as well as the striking Kori Bustard.
Being a private wildlife reserve, Dinaka Safari Lodge can offer guests the opportunity to experience a large array of interesting wildlife experiences year round. The lodge does night drives as well as morning and afternoon safari drives. One can relax in the bunker or the hide which are situated on either side of the concession and have a variety of wildlife and birdlife come to drink at the waterholes throughout the day. Guides at the lodge can take you back to nature and teach visitors about the culture of the Kalahari Bushman, whilst talking guests on some incredible bushwalking tours. If you are lucky you may even spot the elusive nocturnal species of the Kalahari during a night drive. Dinka Safari Lodge offers a completely different experience to lodges in other regions of Botswana.
