Edo's Camp | Kalahari, Botswana

Edo's Camp

This remote camp occupies a fantastic location in a private concession of the Kalahari. Guided rhino tracking safaris are the highlight of visits to Edo's.

Edo's is an intimate safari retreat situated within a private conservation area in the north-western Kalahari Desert. For many years the private property of its Italian owner, Edo's was in recent years opened to the public as a small safari camp accommodating just 8 guests. Access to Edo's is still somewhat restricted, however, in that the camp is generally always booked in its entirety on an exclusive basis.

The Edo conservancy is located on the western edge of the Kalahari Desert, a remote spot that sees few visitors. Though it is not prime game-viewing territory, this area is home to a number of species, including meerkat, oryx, and hyaena. Of special note is the fact that the area has seen the successful reintroduction of white rhino. At the time of writing (July 2015), there are thirteen white rhino in Edo's Conservancy, and the numbers continue to grow, making it one of the best areas in the country to see this rare and endangered species. And you won't always have to search far and wide; the rhino are on occasion seen at the waterhole just outside the camp.

Edo's Camp is very much a traditional bush camp, consisting of four 'Meru' safari tents centred around a thatched, open-air lounge and dining area. Somewhat out of the ordinary is the large swimming pool protected behind a high wall (don't expect much of a view).

Game activities at Edo's Camp are varied. 4x4 drives in the Kalahari are offered, but the real highlight is the guided rhino tracking, which takes place on foot. There's also a floodlit watering hole just in front of the camp, which is often busy with game.

Edo's Camp is run in cooperation with the local San Bushmen, and visits can be arranged to a local San village community.


There are just four tents at Edo's, set on raised wooden decks which overlook a nearby watering hole. They are large, Meru-style tents with thatch covering - very spacious, airy and well-lit. The furnishings are simple and tasteful. The en-suite bathrooms are equipped with showers, bathtubs and flush toilets (one of the tents is shower only, another bath only).


Sumptuous meals are served in the open-air dining area. Breakfast and lunch are usually served buffet style (unless on a full-day activity, in which case picnics are provided), and include a good variety of hot and cold dishes: cereals, cold salads and meats, freshly baked breads, eggs, beans and sausage. Dinner is a three-course set menu.

Do let G&M know in advance if you have any particular dietary requirements.
