Our Accommodation

Kalahari Trails offers a wide range of accommodation at reasonable prices. The main guesthouse commands impressive views of the Nossob riverbed and the dune fields stretching to the horizon. It has a large verandah (stoep) where guests can sit in comfort and visitors are welcome to use the barbecue (braai) facilities.

To eat your meal on the stoep in the quiet of the desert night under the stars is an unforgettable experience. For bird-watchers, there is a small waterhole in front of the house where flocks of desert birds come to drink every day. We also have a small botanical garden with typical plants found on the Reserve. For those chilly winter evenings there is a large, comfortable living room with a fireplace as well as a small dining area to seat twelve people. Kalahari Trails is set up for self-catering, but groups can be catered for if we are given notice of this at least ten days in advance, we can supply the groups with an array of soft drinks, game meat and wood.

There is a large communal kitchen which is fully equipped with everything necessary to keep and prepare your food (refrigerators, freezers, gas cookers, microwave oven, toaster, all cooking utensils, dishes, cutlery, glasses etc.). We also have a small shop selling basic foods, snacks, a wide array of soft drinks and beers meat and wood for barbecue (braai) fires.

We recommend that guests bring their fresh food (especially meat, fruit, vegetables, bread etc.) with them because this is difficult to obtain in the desert. Upington has several supermarkets with a wide choice of available foodstuffs.

 

 Please take note: The Kalahari tap water is salty, we do supply drinking water to our guests.
