Mabuasehube is located on the Botswana side of the Kgalagadi national park and is a beautiful camp with a view of the pan. The name means 'red earth' named after the red Kalahari sand.

There are four campsites, unfenced, and they all overlook the Mabuasehube pan. Site 1 have a firepit, no other facilities but shade-giving trees, not even an A-frame. Perched on top of a little cliff with fantastic views over the pan. Most of the time there is no water here. So be sure to bring your own water.

This camp has been privatised and now it is managed and operated by the Inter-Tourism Group who can be contacted for bookings and rates and no longer operates under the DWNP. Only park fees are paid directly to DWNP offices.

Park entry fees may be paid at the gate in Botswana Pula cash only - ensure that you have the correct amount, or pre-pay your entry through the DWNP offices +267 686 1265 or +267 397 1405.
