Deception Valley Lodge is a pristine oasis deep in the Kalahari Desert of Botswana and not far from the famous Okavango Delta. Experience the vastness of the Kalahari whilst enjoying abundant bird life, game viewing or star gazing by night.

Boasting pure comfort and vibrant, rustic interiors, Deception Valley Lodge accommodates up to sixteen people on a sharing basis. Set amidst the arid and remote Kalahari bush, the lodge and each of its units are raised upon stilts and connected by wooden walkways. Every attention has been given to detail to ensure not only a completely novel guest experience but also an environmentally pleasing haven consistent with its natural surroundings.

The main complex incorporates a dining room, lounge and bar area. Views from the deck include the nearby watering hole, perfect for lazy game viewing. A small library lies in wait for the book lover whilst the curio shop makes for some retail therapy if so desired. By daylight, the swimming pool provides a cool refuge from the warm African sun whilst by nightfall the boma offers a social fireplace to warm oneself over a drink.

Overall this lodge is a nonstop experience upon arrival. It is informative, educative and relaxing. The San Bushmen, the magnificent game viewing and the complete seclusion from the busyness of everyday life give it a refreshing and unique flavour. For the more private we also offer the exclusive Kalahari Manor House. This is within walking distance of the lodge but complete with its own private guide, private chef and accommodating up to a maximum of four people.
