Whether you camp in one of the well-maintained campgrounds near clean ablution blocks or stay in one of our comfortable well-equipped chalets with en-suite showers and toilets, you are assured of enjoying your stay at Khama Rhino Sanctuary (or as it is also known, the Botswana National Park).

The camping and chalet facilities at Mokongwa Camp are a short drive from the entrance gate and are accessible without a 4x4 (4wd) vehicle. The chalets are very popular, so it is best to book well in advance. They are perfect for those who prefer self-catering (self-contained) accommodation. The rustic chalets can accommodate four people. Each chalet has a toilet and shower en-suite with hot water. Bedding and towels are also provided. Situated by a Mokongwa tree, you will also find a fireplace, braai stand with grid and a tap and birdbath. Basic cooking equipment and crockery are provided, but no stove or refrigerator.

There are 13 campsites, including sites for large groups. The central feature of each site is a large Mokongwa tree, which provides both character and shade. There is also a fireplace, braai stand with grill, and tap with birdbath. The campsites are served by two communal ablution blocks. Staff housing at the Boma Camp has been converted to provide further accommodation facilities. The A-frame is a two-storey chalet for six people, whilst the three square-davels each sleep two people, with braai area and ablutions - ideal for backpackers.

Khama Rhino Sanctuary opens at 08:00 daily and closes at 19:00. Special arrangements for arrival outside these hours must be made in advance. On arrival at the Sanctuary, you will find friendly staff to help answer your questions about the sanctuary and other Botswana national parks. Wood for fires and braais can be bought here, as well as ice, cold drinks and basic provisions. There is also a craft shop selling various local crafts, books, maps, souvenirs and postcards.

ACTIVITIES: The Sanctuary’s roads are well-maintained, compared to other national parks in Botswana. This makes them suitable for self-drive game viewing in four and two-wheel drive vehicles. Guided game drives, rhino trails and nature walks can be booked and are supervised by well-trained and very knowledgeable rangers. Morning drives and night drives are available.
