Dinaka is owned and operated by Ker & Downey, a company that aims to provide exclusive safari experiences! The new camp will be suitable for most types of traveller, including families.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Most travellers to Dinaka Reserve approach by air or road from Maun. The setting is thrillingly remote, perfect for anyone seeking an authentic safari. It is situated in the Dinaka reserve, an area of 200 square kilometres within the north region of the Central Kalahari.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Guest accommodation at Dinaka will consist of eight safari tents, including one tent for families. All will be connected to the communal building along wooden walkways. A standard tent will contain either a double bed or twin beds, mosquito nets, bedside tables and lighting, a writing desk and chair, a separate seating area, storage chests, a tea-and-coffee station, and en-suite facilities comprising flush toilet and washbasin, as well as indoor and outdoor showers with hot and cold running water. The family tent will have an extra bedroom for children. The artist’s impression shows sliding doors leading out onto a private veranda set with chairs and a table, and we know that there will be amazing views of a nearby waterhole!
Dinaka’s activities will focus on seeing the wildlife of the Central Kalahari, by way of game drives, guided bushwalks, and viewing from hides. Game drives will be available during the morning and from late afternoon into early evening. Guests will enjoy sightings of predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and brown hyena, in addition to herbivores including giraffe and antelope species.
If you are a keen birder, you will love looking out for over 200 types of feathery friends, among them pale chanting goshawk and kori bustard. The camp’s guided bushwalks will present exciting opportunities to learn about the birdlife of the reserve, in addition to the insect and plant life of Dinaka. And if you want to get really close to the animal action, you will relish access to the camp’s hides. Some are set up close to waterholes, for fantastic photo opportunities! The camp has a sleep-out deck too – we will post more details about this soon.
