Sitting on a stunning island in the midst of the Okavango Delta, Jacana Camp’s laid-back luxury provides the perfect retreat. Spend the days on water or land-based game drives, depending on the season, and your nights relaxing under the star-studded night sky.
Primely located in the heart of Palmwag, Desert Rhino Camp is instrumental in protecting the rare Black Rhino for which it’s named. Track these giants, along with several other animals that have adapted to living in this dry, arid climate, on foot and in vehicles.
With unimpeded views of the famous dunes of Sossusvlei, deluxe huts with private plunge pools, and desert-adapted wildlife, it’s hard to imagine a more amazing escape than Little Kulala. Add rooftop “sky beds” for star gazing, and this camp becomes heaven on Earth.
Local Bite: Lemon and Condensed Milk Biscuits
Preheat the oven to 335 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the condensed milk and mix on low until all ingredients are well blended. Add the lemon juice and grated zest. Mix and sift the dry ingredients, and then them to the mixture. Blend until everything is well mixed. Roll teaspoon-size dollops of dough into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Gently flatten the balls with a fork. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits begin to brown underneath. Let the biscuits cool before dusting with powdered sugar.*This is a traditional Botswanan cookie
