Deception Valley Lodge Overview
Informal, traditional, family-run – Deception Valley Lodge offers guests the ideal introduction to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The real thrill of your Botswana Desert Holiday is when you meet the San on a tour with a Bushman guide.

Set on 15 000 hectares of private reserve, Deception Valley Lodge is the leading Kalahari destination in Botswana, bordering the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

Bushmen trackers (from the !Naro tribe) no longer live their traditional life but are glad to take guests out on foot to encounter animals and explore one of the oldest cultures in Africa – the San way of life many years ago. Educational and enlightening, the Deception Valley experience in Botswana enriches the soul: learn all there is to know about the Kalahari Desert and its incredible wildlife and vegetation. Completely secluded from civilisation, this Botswana holiday will teach you hunting and survival skills, how animals survive in the drought-stricken area – and more about you.

Deception Valley Lodge is a luxury venue in a private game reserve overlooking a waterhole – an oasis in the desert where game drives both morning and night suit the flexibility of the guests.
The chalets feature: Victorian style bathroom, spacious living room, alfresco shower, ceiling fan, minibar, mosquito nets, hairdryer, bathrobes & shaving plug.

The Botswana Kalahari is close to the renowned Okavango Delta to the north and the popular Vic Falls for exciting day trips.
