We have thoroughly enjoyed spending two nights at !Xaus Lodge in the Kgalagadi. Its so quiet that you can almost hear a pin drop at night. Except for some hyena, lion or owl sounds of course. Excellent facilities, food, guiding, pool etc. Its about 1 hour drive from the meeting point which is Kamqua picnic site where you will be picked up. Great star gazing too!
