VIEW GALLERY

In Setswana, the name, Loapi, means ‘the space below the clouds’, aptly reflected in the camp’s environmentally sensitive, modular design suspended between earth and sky. The camp comprises 4 one-bedroom homes and 2 two-bedroom homes, spanning over 300 square metres (about 3200 square feet) and over 400 square metres (about 4600 square feet) respectively. All the elements of a safari camp have been incorporated into each home with indoor and outdoor spaces conducive to communal dining and relaxation.

 

Designed as contemporary glass and steel pavilions, the living and dining areas form the heart of the home together with the kitchen and fully stocked pantry and bar. A private study makes working or studying remotely very easy. There are incredible, uninterrupted views across the valley from every room. Deep, shaded decks have daybeds for relaxation, a plunge pool for refreshing dips and a fire pit, ideal for sundowners and early morning coffee.

 

The bedrooms are cocoon-like sanctuaries under canvas, connecting guests to the sights and sounds of nature while providing exceptional comfort and insulation from the Kalahari’s extreme temperatures. Uncluttered, sculptural interiors, enriched by nature’s colours, textures and organic shapes, optimise the sense of space.

 

With at least 100 metres (330 feet) between each home, guests are assured of privacy and seclusion throughout their stay. Personal service is provided by a dedicated butler and all meals are prepared by a private chef in the interactive kitchen.

 

Loapi Camp features numerous sustainable design solutions, from energy-saving air-conditioning and solar-powered pool pumps to generous, shade-creating overhangs. Insulated walls, double roofs and cross-ventilation naturally help temperature regulation. To encourage responsible water consumption, bathrooms have indoor and outdoor showers (no baths), and the plunge pools are designed to be water-wise to reduce evaporation.

 

At the entrance to each home is a pavilion, or outpost, from where guests set off on all activities, including day and night game drives, guided walks, a morning with meerkats, field trips with scientific researchers, a dune picnic, or dinner at Restaurant Klein JAN. The outpost is also a welcoming point of return with a bathroom, storage for safari essentials and a choice of refreshments. As with Tswalu’s other camps, guests have private use of a safari vehicle with a dedicated guide and tracker, providing unlimited access to the largest privately protected conservation area in South Africa.
