Thakadu Camp is a fantastic place to stay if you want all the fun of camping without any of the hassles. The very friendly Chris and Jeanette Woolcott run this absolute oasis of relaxation right in the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Their waterfall-fed swimming pool overlooks a watering hole where local wildlife comes daily. They have an open-air bar and restaurant serving absolutely fantastic food. Some evenings there is even roasted game like Kudu that is roasted all day to make an absolutely wonderful evening meal. Major sporting events and other special evenings bring large groups of locals into the restaurant so you can find out more about the local culture.
They offer budget dome tents with bedding and sheets. These mini campsites have electricity, potable water and a place to braai. More elaborate accommodation is available in nicely appointed Meru tenets. These tents have indoor toilets and hot showers. For the budget travellers like me the domed tent dwellers have access to the ablutions blocks. Clean toilets and (very) hot showers are at the ready. Camping is available with full services if you do want to use your own tents.
The site is accessible easily by 2wd cars. The entrance is right on the Trans Kalahari Highway.
