Camping in Mabuasehube National Park

From USD 1

Mabuasehube Reserve (a part of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park) has some of the most remote Kalahari camping in Botswana. There are very few sites available so they tend to book up far in advance. There are seven camps in Mabuasehube, each with two to four individual sites, totaling just 17 campsites in the entire Mabuasehube reserve. If you’re looking for solitude, you’ve come to the right place. The camps are named for the pan they sit next to (except for Entrance Gate.)

1. No noise allowed especially after 7 pm

2. Wildlife roam freely including lions so always beware

The campsites at Mabuasehube have a wide variety of facilities ranging from nothing but a tree, to functioning showers, sinks and toilets. Keep in mind that although several sites have water available, it may not be suitable for drinking. Every site has a trash barrel and a campfire pad. The largest structure at each site is the beautifully-constructed A-frame shade shelter with a concrete pad beneath it. There is one site that doesn’t have an A-frame (Mabua 1) so I do include that in the facility lists. There are also some nicely-constructed spiral enclosures for outdoor showers and for pit toilets (often referred to locally as a “long-drop”). These are the “spirals” I refer to in the information below.

Note that water is sometimes available at some sites. In the table below we show which sites had water when we visited. This does not mean there will always be water. Therefore you must always plan to be totally self-sufficient and bring all the water you will need.
