Pronounced ‘kaus’, the lodge is a place to experience a unique desert environment, providing accommodation in the heart of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park for eco-tourists and visitors to the Kalahari.
The beautiful Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a conservation area measuring over 3.5 million hectares, almost twice the size of the Kruger National Park. The Kgalagadi offers stunning scenery, excellent birding and an overpowering silence under the clear night sky. Some of the highlights of the lodge include a cosy lounge with a fireplace, a large observation deck perfect for stargazing, a refreshing swimming pool and a heart- warming fire in the boma, perfect for enjoying the beauty of the night sky.
