Anib Kalahari Lodge
In the midst of the red dunes of the Kalahari the lodge seems like a plush green oasis: the accommodation facilities are grouped around a spacious courtyard with palm trees and acacias, a succulent garden and a large swimming pool. There are 36 well-appointed rooms with a private veranda opening onto the courtyard. For individual guests 19 rooms are available in chalets which are slightly set apart and afford views of the savannah scenery. Nature lovers can choose between 3 exclusive camping sites equipped with private showers and toilets. Meals are served in the restaurant or on the huge terrace. Join a drive through Gondwana Kalahari Park at sunrise or around sunset, spend time watching vultures and marabou storks at the feeding place for carrion birds, or explore the Kalahari on foot by following one of our hiking trails.
Entering the Kalahari Farmhouse is like stepping into a magical enclave or an oasis in the desert - far away from the world. The cottagey chalets with colourful patchwork quilts, fireplaces and oodles of charm look onto the garden lined with towering palms. Birds flutter through the trees, water runs in the streamlets and the feeling of peace pervades the intimate Kalahari resort.
The ample water supply allows the garden to be kept lush and Gondwana's Self Sufficiency Centre to grow its produce for the collection of lodges around the country. At the Centre, adjacent to the lodge, seasonal vegetables are grown, cows are milked, and a variety of cheeses, salamis, sausages and biltong are produced. Visit the Self Sufficiency Centre, lounge around the pool or in the garden, join a sunset excursion into the burnished dunes at Kalahari Anib Lodge, 30km away, and REST.

In the time of the creation, there was a day of rest.

A living desert that brings you a fullness of life, richness of colours, beautiful nature and relaxation lost in time.
