This safari focuses on travelling in the Central Kalahari Desert in the best season for wildlife watching (January – March). You’ll travel in a small group staying at fully serviced, exclusive campsites along the way which offer excellent service throughout. Spend time in a floating hide on the Boteti River watching the wildlife come down to the waters edge. Head out with Kalahari Bushmen to learn about their traditional survival and hunting kills. You’ll then head to Passarge Valley, a fossil river bed, which supports a large number of wildlife, especially cheetah, lion, giraffe, oryx and springbok. Continue to Deception Valley which is famous for its ancient rivers and pans where large herds of oryx and springbok come to the waterholes, attracting the big predators! Each evening is spent around the campfire talking tales of the bush and reminiscing the day’s activities.
