It is one of the few places where you can meet traditional Bushmen and learn about their skills and habits. The Deception Valley is a dry river bed, once an extension of the Okavango River. Part of the Valleys is in the Central Kalahari and part of it runs through the southern end of the concession of Deception Valley Lodge and so the name of the lodge was developed.

Accommodation is in eight private chalets, each with double bedroom, lounge, ensuite bathroom with Victorian bath and a private outdoor shower. The private deck provides a dramatic view over the Kalahari. The lodge has assigned a pool and a library.

Other activities at the Deception Valley Lodge include game and night drives in custom build vehicles with a good chance of spotting the rare Kalahari lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, kudu and with some luck the shy and elusive brown hyena. The night game drives will reveal the fascinating world of nocturnal animals. The Deception Valley Lodge is a paradise for bird lovers.

The lodge is booked on an all inclusive basis, with accommodation, meals and all drinks, activities and laundry service. Children as of 6 years are welcome on request.
