Suricate Tented Kalahari Lodge is situated in the Intu Afrika Kalahari Private Game Reserve. It is in a 10,000ha wildlife sanctuary, located in the south-western region of the Kalahari Desert, along the upper reaches of the Auob river system of Namibia. The expanse of the reserve is characterized by lofty ancient parallel red dunes sparsely covered by unique vegetation. The lodge itself is set on a red sand dune, overlooking a pan system.
There is a restaurant, lounge and pool and bar. Both the cozy African-style lounge that overlooks the vast grassy pans of the Auob river, and the pool deck, are perfect settings for guests to enjoy their drinks and meals. Alternately, wine and dine in the outdoor boma that looks out onto the vast grassy pans of the Auob River.

The third lodge on the Intu Afrika Kalahari Game Reserve (along with Suricate & Camethorn Lodges). The Kalahari is absolutely magnificent and really should be a part of any visit to Namibia.
These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
The staff was very friendly, the food was nice and the place was amazing and peaceful (you could see the animals from the pool). I would go back.
