Deception Valley Lodge - Safari  Camp in the Central Kalahari
Deception Valley Lodge, 120 km South of Maun and adjoining the Central Kalahari Reserves offers a safari opportunity to experience the unique desert fauna and flora of this area of sharp contrasts.  Most safaris to Botswana do not take you to the desert, and a few days added to Deception Valley will greatly increase your appreciation of this area.

Deception Valley was made famous by Mark and Delia Owens' book Cry of the Kalahari
