KALAHARI ADVENTURE SAFARI
This safari offers an insight into the culture and history of the Kalahari’s oldest inhabitants – the San Bushman. It is ideal for the adventure enthusiast, offering breathtaking scenery, desert wildlife and the privilege of an introduction to the traditional lifestyle of the San Bushmen. Marvel at the beauty and incredible fauna and flora diversity of the Kalahari.
Day 1: MAUN to HAINAVELD / SAN BUSHMAN EXPERIENCE (camping)
The safari begins in Maun where your guide will meet you at 07h30 at a pre-arranged meeting point. You will travel 180km to a game farm on the northern border of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, set up camp and have a safari briefing. In the afternoon you will participate in a nature walk led by local San Bushmen trackers. They will share their intricate bush knowledge and give you an insight into their unique and intriguing culture.
Included meals: lunch & dinner
Day 2 & 3: CENTRAL KALAHARI GAME RESERVE – PASSARGE VALLEY (camping)
You will wake up as the sun rises and enter the pristine wilderness of the largest game reserve in Botswana. The next four days will be spent exploring the undeveloped wilderness of the northern region of the Kalahari, moving from camp to camp.
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. We camp in private, designated unfenced wilderness campsites with fixed bush ablutions.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch & dinner
Day 4 & 5: CENTRAL KALAHARI GAME RESERVE – DECEPTION VALLEY (camping)
Today, we move to Deception Valley. The transfer takes the form of a game drive. We have two full days to explore this amazing area of the Kalahari, which is well known for its large lion population. We hope to find these big cats on early morning and afternoon game drives. We camp in private, designated unfenced wilderness campsites with fixed bush ablutions.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch & dinner
Day 6: MAUN (comfortable lodge)
After our final morning game drive in the Kalahari we return to Maun. In the afternoon, you will have the option to take a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta. This magical experience provides another perspective of the Okavango Delta’s distinctive water system. During the flight it is possible to spot large game animals such as elephant, giraffe and hippopotami. This is an optional own expense activity and can be booked with your safari guide.
The final night of the safari will be enjoyed in the comfort of a lodge. Dinner is at your own expense at a local restaurant where you can relive the amazing experience of the last 6 days.
Included meals: breakfast & lunch
Day 7: SAFARI ENDS
The safari officially ends at 08h00 on Day 7 at the lodge. Please contact us to arrange road transfers to Maun Airport for your onward flights.
