Begin your journey at Ghanzi and, deep in the red sands of the Kalahari, experience the electrifying tribal dancing of the San Bushmen. Join a walk in the bush with these master trackers and learn how to read the signs of animals, and the secrets of finding water in this arid desert landscape. Rise with the sun and enter the pristine wilderness of the largest game reserve in Botswana. Savour the vast open spaces, clear night skies and uninterrupted beauty on game drives and at your wilderness campsite. Take a final game drive before heading to Maun where you can pause and enjoy a farewell African sunset at a comfortable lodge before meeting your onward flight.

Day 2-5: Desert vistas

Central Kalahari

You will wake up as the sun rises and enter the pristine wilderness of the largest game reserve in Botswana. (45km)

The next four days will be exploring the undeveloped wilderness of the northern region of the Kalahari, moving from camp to camp. You will visit Passarge Valley and Deception Valley in your exploration of the Kalahari. Savour the vast open spaces, clear night skies and uninterrupted beauty on game drives and at camp.

This is adventure camping in its purest form as water and communications are limited and we travel as a self-sufficient group. Camping is in a designated campsite with fixed/bush ablutions.
