about edo's camp
Edo's Camp is an intimate camp from where the rare beauty of the Kalahari can truly be taken in.  It is located in a private Game Conservancy just off the center of Botswana in the remote Kalahari Desert.  The camp is set around a limestone pan surrounded by ancient Leadwood trees from where plenty of wildlife, including rhino can be seen.  This unspoiled piece of Kalahari also boasts with a rich and abundant birdlife.

Edo's Camp can accommodate 10 guests in five large, twin-bedded Meru-style tents of which one is wheelchair friendly. Each tent is provided with a private en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water as well as private verandas with spectacular views on the permanent waterhole.

Power Source:
Usual voltage is 220-240AC throughout Africa. A 3-prong, round-point adapter will be necessary for appliances that run on 110-120AC.
1. Electricity is completely solar-powered
2. Lighting is available 24 hours at each tent
3. Camera batteries can be recharged in the tents
4. Only small travel hairdryers can be used in the camp.

While having dinner or an early morning coffee, guests can enjoy a breathtaking view from our open dining room area, while listening to the heartbeat of the Kalahari. Sitting around a campfire at night, recapturing the happenings of the day, or just simply enjoying the night sounds adds a meaningful touch to your Edo's Camp experience.

room details
Each of the tents is built up on raised wooden platforms. High thatched roofs mean that the tent interiors are quite cool throughout the day. A covered wooden deck, complete with canvas loungers, camp chairs and a table, offer great views over the waterhole.

The canvas door to the tent can be unzipped and opened for the view whilst an inner mosquito netting remains zipped up to keep out any small intruders. The tent interior has two beds separated by a bedside table. Duvet covers and pillow cases are made up of African print material and this theme is carried through batique wall panels and curtains through to the bathroom.

Rugs cover dark stained wooden floorboards that match the dark wood furniture. A dresser and small wardrobe allow for ample clothing storage. A torch, insect repellent, bug spray, tea and coffee are provided in each room.

The bedside lamps operate on solar power which is available 24 hours a day. Each tent has a 220V plug point which can be used for charging or hairdryers. There's also a large free standing fan.

Most tents have a wooden door which leads from the bedroom to the en-suite bathroom, but two of the tents have curtains which separate the rooms. Although the bathroom is an addition to the tent it is enclosed by reed walls and covered by a net ceiling.

the camp setting
The camp's main attraction is its permanent floodlit waterhole. This uses a natural pan, Edo's Pan, is filled each rainy season and then the lodge pumps additional water into it during the drier months. In fact, this is part of an ancient river system between Botswana and Namibia, within the Kalahari's fossil dunes.

In the past, this has been one of a chain of pans which have played an important part as water points along the old trek routes. These days, an almost continuous parade of wildlife visits Edo's Pan, including kudu, wildebeest, waterbuck, impala and occasionally, rhino and eland. We recommend that you spend at least one evening here, beside the pan, watching the sunset during your stay.

Edo's Camp differs from many of the more 'traditional' safari camps of northern Botswana, most of which are found in the riverine and Delta areas. Instead Edo's stands in a classic Kalahari landscape.

the main area
The most idyllic spot in the camp is around the campfire under the cover of an old leadwood tree. This position offers 180 degree views of the waterhole and the wildlife that regularly comes to drink here.

Set a little back from the camp fire is the thatched dining area. Open sides offer views of the waterhole in case something exciting comes for a drink during meal times! Meals are eaten as a group around a long table here.

A small thatched lounge is surrounded on three sides by a stone wall to keep out the cold southerly wind during the winter months, whilst keeping the view over the waterhole. A leather couch and various Malawi chairs offer comfortable sitting places under cover during the hotter hours of the day.

Edo's Camp has offered a local bushman community initiative the use of a thatched rondavel to set up a curio shop. At this time the room is being donated to the group at no charge, however, the stock and curio sales will then be their sole responsibility.

the main area
At Edo's camp guests have the special opportunity to track rhino on foot with local San guides.  We offer game drives on open 4x4 vehicles where guests can enjoy the unique Kalahari vegetation and have a good chance of seeing Rhino, Giraffe, Zebra, Kudu, Oryx, Waterbuck, Blue Wildebeest, Eland, Red Hartebeest, Impala and Springbuck. Night drives can be arranged on special request.  If guests wants to see the bush from a different perspective guided walks can be arranged.
To get a one on one experience with one of Africa's ancient cultures, guests can go on a visit to a nearby San village, or do a guided bushwalk with the San where they will get introduced to the edible and medicinal desert plants and roots typical to the San culture.

A special visit to our sister organization, Paolo Zanichelli's Children's Home can be arranged where guests can meet the friendly children of our daycare center.
