Dinaka has recently been purchased by the Ker Downey group, and we welcome this foremost company’s ownership.

Ker Downey has a great reputation for lodges in superb areas, and with their high levels of services, Dinaka provides them with a link to the Central Kalahari for an enhanced lodge circuit.

The camp has been refurbished to a high standard, bringing it in line with the quality of their other lodges.

Dinaka Gallery



During your stay at Dinaka, you can expect to see a wide array of animals, from the antelope – eland, kudu, gemsbok, impala, springbok and steenbok – to the reptiles, insects, birds and small mammals like the Honey Badger and porcupine – to the predators – the Kalahari lion, cheetah, leopard and brown hyenas.


Game drives – Both during the day and at night. Watch the vast landscape transform as the sun sets and darkness settles in over the bush revealing new creatures and night-calls.
• Nature walks with Bushmen trackers –Learn from, or simply enjoy being in the presence of someone who is as much a part of the African bush as the sand you walk on or the sky you walk under.
• Stargazing – The night sky is a diamond studded wonder. Astronomy courses can be provided by special arrangement.
• Sundowners on a raised hide – With a drink of your own, watch a myriad of animals quench their thirst after a long day in the African sun.
• A sleep out in the hide –Bed down next to the waterhole and experience the thrill of nature by night. Sleep outs are arranged upon request.
• Photographic safaris – capture moments of the Kalahari; perhaps a dew-lit sunrise or the giant African bullfrog in a rain filled pan…
• Birding safaris – with over 200 positively identified bird species, the central Kalahari truly is a birders paradise.
