Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge
is located in the Mariental
area in the Southeast
region of Namibia
This is one of three lodges set on the 100 square kilometre Intu Afrika private reserve, an area of classic Kalahari linear dunes which plays host to a good range of game including zebra, giraffe, wildebeest and oryx.
Camelthorn is the more rustic of the lodges, with 12 chalets ranged through light woodland around a central thatched public space with lounge bar, dining and pool areas.
Activities include morning and evening nature drives and walks, Bushmen walks and quadbiking excursions.
Although Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge is clearly a pretty decent lodge, it is somehow rather cold, commercial and lacking in personality. This impression was reinforced during our last visit when we were not permitted to take photos, hence the poor imagery.
