Kalahari Campaign Desk

From: R17,000.00

A beautiful smaller desk from the same stable as our Campaign Officer’s Desk. Built from the finest African Hardwood, Zambezi Teak or African Mahogany, connoisseurs of fine furniture will appreciate the solid inch and a quarter thick top and the exquisite joinery used in its construction.

The fittings are solid brass, specially commissioned by The African Touch.

With a top of 1200mm (4’) by 500mm (20”) it fits conveniently into a smaller area. Custom sizes can be quoted.

The Kalahari Campaign Desk packs neatly into a crate for international shipping with simple instructions for assembly when you receive it.

The Kalahari Campaign Desk evolved out of a need for a smaller version of our highly successful Campaign Officer’s Desk. True to the tradition of Campaign Furniture it disassembles and folds down into a compact box for transportation. Drawers provide good storage space while allowing plenty of room to pull up your chair under the desk. The solid brass fittings and connecting rod add a luxurious finish to this beautiful little desk. A real gem!


The solid, thick slab of Zambezi Teak is the backbone of this Kalahari Campaign Desk, from which the drawers hang. The drawer cabinet sides are attached using a sliding dovetail joint that imparts tremendous strength and rigidity to the desk. The drawer boxes themselves are built from solid African hardwood also utilising dovetail joints that guarantee the integrity of the construction. They slide smoothly on imported heavy duty roller bearing drawer slides


We offer two exceptionally fine African hardwoods to handcraft our Kalahari Campaign Desks. Zambezi Teak, formerly known as Rhodesian Teak, is one of the hardest and most beautiful timbers you will ever come across. It has a rich red brown colour and varied grain. African Mahogany, traditionally used to build Campaign Furniture, has a more uniform but equally compelling dark brown colour with distinctive striped grain. You may prefer mahogany for true Campaign furniture authenticity! The finish used is a traditional lacquer.


The Kalahari Campaign Desk is designed for Safari Camp tents. However, the larger Deluxe size will add an exciting talking point and design focus to any office space, be it a prestigious private home or top hotel. We offer excellent discounts for large orders.

The brass rail on your Kalahari Campaign Desk is solid polished brass. It requires polishing with a good brass polish from time to time.

Lacquer finish:

To protect your lacquered finish please place your Kalahari Campaign Desk away from direct sunlight. Apply a good furniture wax or polish, initially twice a month, thereafter once a month, sufficient to thinly cover the surface. As it dries (becomes dull) buff with a clean cloth until a beautiful sheen is achieved. Between waxings, keep the finish clean with a soft cloth or duster, and buff without wax.

We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.

The Kalahari Campaign Desk packs very conveniently for international shipping. The legs disassemble easily and the brass connecting bar unbolts. The desk ‘box’ is packed with soft Air-o-thene packing into a thick walled cardboard box. The legs and connecting rods are then carefully wrapped and the whole sealed. Loose bolts, joining screws etc will be placed in a packet in one of the drawers. Prices include shipping to your nearest main port. Should you require shipment ‘Door to Door’ or to an isolated port we may need to update your quote depending on the extra cost. The price excludes fees at the port of entry (customs clearance, tax such as VAT etc).

An excellent chair to go with the Kalahari Campaign Desk is the Okavango Leather Chair. It has also been designed to flat pack for economic shipping.
