    Default Makgadikgadi Adventure Camp info please

    Hi,

    We are visiting Makgadikgadi Adventure Camp in June.

    Has anybody been there recently? What are the facilities like?

    We are sleeping in the tented camp provided by them. What do we need to take in terms of cutlery, crockery, etc.

    I'm battling to get info from them.

    Thanks in advance.

    Last time I was there was 2013. Their tented accommodation had two beds with blankets, but I would still carry more blankets as they were not that warm. Their ablutions were clean with HOT water but their pool was closed. Since then I do Kubu-Gweta-Maun Non-stop.

    I haven't been there, but looking at the info available on the web, I would say take everything you need with you.

    Hi Christylou

    was wondering if you stayed at the camp and what you thought, how was the drive from the A30 to the camp and approximatly how long did it take you to do the drive from tar road to here?

    Was thinking of maybe 2 night of solitude now on the 17th of September

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    yes, we did stay. The drive took us roughly 5 hours from Nata side to the Camp. The road really wasn’t terrible - but we were there in the dry season. It was about a 45 minute drive from the Camp to Kubu Island ( WHICH IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST).

    The camp itself is very rough and ready but has clean ablutions with hot showers. The solitude, sunset and stars are just out of this world.

    Do you have have your own camping gear? If so, you’ll be fine. We stayed in the dome tents (we had booked the High wall tents with beds but there were other people staying in them when we arrived). The “mattresses” and bedding were okayish but myself (full of arthritis) and 75 yo grandma did battle. We landed up only staying 1 night instead of 2 because of this.

    In in a nutshell: the setting is really lovely but the sleeping facilities are not great. Ablutions were really good.
