Three Pool Suites, three Bush Suites, one Family Villa and the mobile Khwai Camp make up the accommodation at Feline Fields. Each suite is situated on the edge of a wooded area and were created to blend in with the surroundings, preserve them, and provide unrestricted views of the Kalahari landscape. The suites are built on a 1,000 square foot raised wooden terrace made from sustainably sourced oak and are spaced apart to allow each guest privacy. Open-air buildings made of wood, clay, and thatch have been skillfully constructed to shield guests from the elements. The main lodge features a modern lounge with a view of a welcoming 25-meter pool, while this oasis in the desert is completed by a charming bar, library wing, and decorated lapa seating around a cozy fire.
