Kalahari Desert Camp is situated on a prime and private 15 500 hectare concession located in the Central Kalahari sharing borders with the northern boundary of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the largest reserve in Botswana covering 52 800 km2 and is well known for various pans and more famously the Deception Pan.
