Kalahari Reserve



Off the beaten track, on the northern edge of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana, Dinaka is host to one of the most unique bio-diversities in Southern Africa.


A spacious camp, seven safari tents sit on a wooden deck under thatched roofs. The communal space at Dinaka includes a dining room and bar with an adjoining sleep-out deck, offering guests a panoramic view and the chance to spend the night under the African night sky. The tents are well-spaced and the elevated deck provides a good view over a permanent water-hole. Connected by wooden walkways, all areas of the camp are accessible by wheelchair. There is solar power with a generator back-up, and whilst there are no power points in the rooms the main lodge can recharge batteries and electronic devices. There is Wi-Fi.


Dinaka has seven twin and double-bedded safari tents; each with an en suite bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower, hot and cold running water and a flushing toilet. Families are accommodated in a two-bedroom tent, sharing an en suite bathroom. Every tent is styled and furnished simply and elegantly, with browns and greens mirroring the natural environment.

Food & services

Dinaka serves delicious, hearty food using seasonal ingredients. A generous breakfast of eggs is served to order each morning. Guests eat together in the large, communal dining room, which also has a bar and an outdoor wooden deck ideal for sundowners.


Situated next to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Dinaka offers morning and afternoon wildlife drives in open safari vehicles, with afternoon game drives often continuing into the evening. There are also guided bush walks and bird-watching. The year-round watering holes offer ideal photography opportunities.


As part of its social responsibility programme, Dinaka supports the charity Bana Ba Letsatsi, which supports vulnerable, orphaned and at-risk children living in Maun.
