Description [ correction ]

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

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.

There are four campsites, unfenced, and they all overlook the Mabuasehube pan. Campsites have A-Frame structures for shade, cold showers and a long drop toilet. Although note that it has been reported that there is no longer any water here, the borehole ran dry, and no water at the waterhole. Bring your own water!

“On the less exciting front, there is no longer any water at any of the Mabuasehube camps (or the water hole). We were told that the borehole ran dry a couple of years ago. ” - Jonathan Lang, 2015/10/04

“The whole Mabuasehube area has a lot of lions, as well as leopard. If you want to get close up and personal with lions, this is the place to come. All the camps are unfenced and anything can wander into your camp (and does). We had heard tales of lions not only coming into the camps but settling down there. We went out for a game drive one morning and camp back to find two female lions asleep under the A frame in amongst all our kit (see photos) with a male asleep under a tree nearby. A brown hyena paid us a visit overnight and helped himself to a packet of cereal. ” - Jonathan Lang, 2015/10/04
