Deception Valley Lodge

There is a magical place in the vast Kalahari that has perplexed weary wanderers for many years. This” waterless oasis” known as deception valley was named after the riverbed which evokes the illusion of containing water.

 Today deception valley is a gathering place for large herds of antelope’s which attracts a wide range of predators such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, and hyenas.


Comfort & Style

There are eight spacious suites each with a separate lounge area, en-suite bathroom with Victorian bath and outdoor shower. Each room has a stunning viewing deck and convenient mini bar. There are two family suites to welcome families of different sizes. Deception Valley Lodge has created a lodge that prevails in comfort and style, allowing the Kalahari Desert to feel welcoming.

The vision of the Deception Valley Conservancy is to return previous farming and hunting land to the untamed natural treasure it once was.

Wildlife Encounters

Excellent tracking opportunities are provided by the Kalahari sand and a dedicated tracker accompanies each vehicle on its activities. A visit to the lodge would be incomplete without experiencing the San Bushman walk with the Naru-tribe. The desert comes alive when sharing the eyes of those who have lived in the region for tens of thousands of years.
