El-Fari Camp is situated 64 km north of the town of Ghanzi on the western border of Botswana, approximately 700 km from Gaborone, 500 km from Windhoek, and 280 km from Maun. The campsite is a perfect stopover point for campers on their way through to the Okavango Delta and other parts of Northern Botswana and Namibia.
Each campsite is shaded by either acacia or leadwood trees and features water-on-tap, a dustbin and built-in braai facilities. The campsites are spaced far apart to maximise your privacy and there is also a washing up facility.
The campsite offers the cleanest ablution facilities for campers within the area, if not within Botswana, with hot and cold water on tap at all times. Lighting at night in the ablutions is provided by solar panels and sets of batteries.
This is the perfect setting to enjoy a beautiful African sunset while relaxing around the camp fire. Enjoy the kudu grazing near your campsite, or the inquisitive red-billed francolin and other birdlife. El-Fari is a stop that you will never forget and is a must for all campers going to and from the northern most reaches of Botswana.
Each campsite offers water-on-tap, a dustbin and built-in braai facilities. The campsites can easily accommodate an overland group, or a self-drive group of six to eight vehicles, four to five tents, or up to 16 people.
We loved everything about the bush camp. The distance between the individual camp sites for privacy (no squash and sqeeze), the ablutions which are top notch, the natural setting and environment with bush, Kalahari sand, trees and an abundance of bird life and their songs, the dark skies lit with stars at night, and the owners Frederick and Anrie who were superb hosts. Dankie julle. Was the absence of electricity an issue? Definitely not! Come prepared and enjoy being in the bush 🙂 We'll definitely return to El-Fari
Hosts were very accommodating, supplied wood and lit the donkey themselves. Ablutions are new and spacious, with separate kitchen wash-up area. Camp is nice and quiet, could have been a little further away from the farm house.
The campsites are large, and few, which is part of the charm. You are truly in the bush and away from any visible connection to the world. The ablution blocks have been well thought out by someone (apparently oupa) who thinks "If I use this faciltiy, what would I want it to have?" Not many people think of the camper's needs when they design ablutions – simpole things like hooks for clothes, a place to sit, a place to out your toiletry bag. Come with all your own provisions, but if you want a simple, peaceful place, this is it. One meets such amazing people on one's travels: the family who lives here has an interesting life story to tell.
Very nice camping spot<br/><br/>***************************************************<br/>Thank you so much for the wonderful review Petru. Reviews like this lets us <br/>know we are on the right path.<br/><br/>Thank you<br/><br/>Kind Regards<br/><br/>Elani Van Rooyen<br/><br/>
