The Lodge

Deception Valley Lodge, nestled on a vast 43,000-hectare private conservancy on the edge of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, offers guests an authentic Kalahari experience. The lodge uniquely pairs traditional safaris with cultural immersion, as guests are guided by the Naru-speaking San tribe’s Bushmen, Africa’s ancient inhabitants. During day and night game drives, witness diverse wildlife including the black-maned Kalahari lion, cheetah, and elusive species like the brown hyena and pangolin. Explore the bush on foot to uncover Bushman hunting techniques and traditions. Accessible by air or road, the lodge boasts eight spacious suites overlooking the African savanna: two of which are family suites, complete with amenities like a swimming pool, spa and various relaxation areas. Activities range from stargazing to wildlife viewing to unique Bushmen experiences.
