Dinaka Safari Lodge

Central Kalahari | Botswana


Dinaka Safari Lodge is situated adjacent to the Central Kalahari in its own exclusive reserve and provides an ideal start or finish to Botswana safaris. With only eight luxurious spacious en-suite tents plus a tour guides tent built on raised wooden platforms, this lodge offers fantastic game viewing and wildlife experiences. The accommodation is positioned at great vantage points, so guests can enjoy spectacular scenery and witness large varieties of wildlife that visit the local waterholes to drink.


Family accommodation consists of a two bedroomed tent that sleeps five. Dinaka Safari Lodge is marketed as a child-friendly lodge and is a fantastic place for families to enjoy their first African adventure. All tent accommodation is connected by wooden walkways which allows easy access for everyone.


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 and is home to abundant wildlife including the Kalahari lion, brown hyena and cheetah. 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.
