THE KALAHARI


Discover the largest, most remote reserve in Botswana

Discover the largest, most remotely situated reserve in Botswana and in fact southern Africa. Here is the second largest wildlife reserve in the world. In this semi-arid landscape, experience immense space with endless grasslands, bushes, sand dunes and pans. With good rains, the flat grasslands can teem with wildlife, including large herds of springbok and gemsbok, wildebeest, hartebeest, eland and giraffe, together with their predators. At other times of the year the experience of travelling through this vast untouched wilderness, is indeed the allure. This unique park was originally established in 1961 as a place of sanctuary for the San people, where they could live their traditional hunter/ gatherer way of life, without intrusion, or influence from the outside world. Within the Kalahari lies the inhospitable and harsh Makgadikgadi Game Reserve where very little wildlife can exist during the harsh dry season, but after the rains it is the scene of large migrating herds of zebra and wildebeest.
