  • Hi Rob. We had an absolutely amazing time. “This is the best yet!” was spoken every day, right up to departure. I think I can speak for everyone in saying this was the best trip of our lifetimes. We are so grateful for the care you put into setting up this trip – it was beyond fabulous!!

The Central Kalahari Game Reserve

The Central Kalahari is an area of semi-desert, where trees, bushes and grass do exist within an otherwise hostile desert environment. This allows a variety of birds and animals to exist, including the rare brown hyaena, meerkat, oryx, giraffe, zebra, bat-eared fox, jackal, springbok, red haartebeest, lion, cheetah, caracal and leopard.

The region is best visited during the ‘green’ season from November to March/April, when game concentrates on the various open ‘pans’ within the reserve. During the dry season, the landscape is harsh, and game is more spread out (especially the late dry season from August to October). However recently introduced ‘pumped’ waterholes will become focal drinking spots during these drier months, and should improve game-viewing.
