Location + Surroundings
The vast Kalahari Desert, the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world, covers 84% of Botswana, extending from the Orange River in South Africa to the equator in Gabon.
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve extending over 50,000 square kms, was set aside in 1961 as a haven for the Bushmen in which they might continue their traditional lifestyle of hunting and gathering from the desert. The reserve and empty lands around it support tens of thousands of desert antelope – gemsbuck and springbuck, Lions, leopard and cheetah.
- Safari/Game drive
Venturing far into the center of the Makgadikgadi, on 4x4 quad bikes, we are able to explore remote archaeological sites, periodically discovering never-before-documented fossil beds of extinct giant zebra and hippo. The fact that you can travel across the pans at great speed and still arrive nowhere only underlines the pans immensity.
A safari is a complete desert experience focusing on species unique to the area such as aardvark, gemsbuck and springbuck. It is the only place where guests are virtually guaranteed to see the rare and elusive brown hyena and be able to walk through the Kalahari with a gang of habituated but, wild meerkats!
