Safari Lifestyles View

Haina Kalahari Lodge is an excellent stop off for the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The area is a fenced farm with an array of plains game. It is perfectly possibly to come across predators here; indeed the last time Safari Lifestyles visited we had lions roaring right outside the lodge and even followed lion tracks on quad bikes. However, if there are any predators then these come and go if they manage to get under the fence so they are not permanent on the farm.

The Lodge itself is a really nice bush lodge with pretty good accommodation. The activities range from walks with the local bushmen, game drives within the farm to quad biking around the area (watch out for those lions!) . They will even undertake mobile safaris into the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, but these must overnight as the reserve is really too far for a day trip. These mobiles are at an extra cost.
