Dqae Qare San Lodge

Just outside Ghanzi in Botswana is the Dqae Qare Game Farm. This farm offers much more than just a stay at a beautiful location. The Dqae Qare Game Farm is owned and run by the San (bushmen). It is a social business that supports the local San D’Kar community by providing work. It has been an important project for the cultural survival of the San people. Here, the San are happy show you their culture and way of life. Various activities are organised at the Game Farm, which give you a look into the way of life of the bushmen. You can look at how they make fire, jewellery, perform traditional dances and go on a bush walk with a guide.

The campsite is 300 metres from the Lodge in Ghanzi, Botswana under large Camelthorn trees. This means every camping pitch always has plenty of shade. There are ten individual camping pitches with traditional San windbreakers and a round fire pit with braai. There is also a large covered area with a washing up facility. As a campsite guest, you are more than welcome to have dinner at the Lodge with a reservation. You can also make use of all lodge facilities. The accessibility to the outside world is very limited in this remote place.

Dqae Qare is a fixed stopover on the 24-day Namibia and Botswana self drive trip.

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
