This 10-night itinerary (6 nights lodging & 5 nights camping) allows you to see parts of the Kalahari that many don't. It's a wonderful trip for clients returning to Botswana looking for something a bit different and also amazing. It's also a route we promote going from January to March so you can see Nxai Pan's annual Zebra Migration. This is still considered low season, so you can travel for a fraction of the price! It's also works well for those in the northern hemisphere who would like to get some winter sun.
Arrive in Maun where you will be met by a member of our team and taken to Thamalakane. This riverside retreat makes for a great first night in Africa.
On day 2, you will make your way south of Maun to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve for your first night camping in the bush.
Today you will game drive across the Central Kalahari to Tau Pan Lodge, the first semi-permanent camp inside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The camps offers incredible views from the elevated ridge of an ancient sand dune.
Another striking area of the Central Kalahari, enjoy one night here.
Perhaps the most famous of the campsites here - it's renowned for good cat sightings!
