San Camp sits serenely in a reef of palm at the edge of the world. You can see the curve of the earth here: turn 360° and nothing crosses the eye but the sky. It is the nothingness that attracts, this is God's own minimalism. A safari to San Camp is also a complete desert experience focusing on species unique to the area such as aardvark, gemsbok and springbuck. San Camp features four-poster beds, mosquito net canopies, percale sheets and paraffin lamps: there’s no electricity here. Six white canvas tents twinned with a dramatic location combine to create an oasis of civilization in what can be the harshest of stark environments.

Retreat Projects

Construction & Energy

All the wood used to construct San Camp, is Zimbabwe Teak. The Timber harvested is in accordance with Forest Stewardship Council principles and guidelines, which will ensure sustainable harvesting and preservation of Zimbabwe’s beautiful forest. San Camp is entirely run on solar energy, which reduces the use of petrol and paraffin in the camp. The silence is so complete, that even the smallest generator would disturb the peace.

Brown Hyena

The Brown hyenas are fitted with radio-tracking collars that collect data to acquire in-depth knowledge and dynamics of the clan, for effective conservation and management of species. The two most important parameters is the mortality and birth rate to be examined. We also investigate the impact of the Makgadikgadi game fence, preventing the movement of the brown hyena out of the Park and into cattle areas. Working with other zebras and lions projects, we try to determine the impact the fence has on the 3 keystone species of the ecosystem. The researcher who conducts the project discusses and explains it to the guests of the camp.
