Deception Valley Lodge, Central Kalahari

General information

Deception Valley Lodge is a traditional family-run lodge on the outskirts of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR). Because it is set in a private reserve, there is more flexibility with activities than in the neighbouring national park – meaning they offer day and night drives and extended walks, all accompanied by qualified guides and Bushman trackers.


Deception Valley Lodge is a decidedly traditional lodge, with very hands-on owners who will often guide at the lodge, or at the very least try to meet every guest who comes to stay. It’s a comfortable place to get a very real feel for the Kalahari – the highlight is often the informative and very entertaining walk with the Bushman trackers.


  • Location: Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Botswana
  • Ideal length of stay: Two–three nights is probably the optimum stay here, although if you opt for the full-day trip into the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, then best stay for three nights.
  • Directions: Access is usually by light aircraft to the airstrip on the property, and then it is around 15 minutes’ drive between the airstrip and the camp.
  • Accessible by: Self-drive or Fly-and-Transfer
