Kalahari Plains Camp

Kalahari Plains – Game Drives *

Twice daily game drives or full-day excursions take place in open 4x4 vehicles, and are directed towards the seasonal movements of the wildlife. The Central Kalahari is a vast expanse of scrub-covered fossil dunes between ancient river valleys. During the rains (November to April), the desert comes to life, with huge herds of plains game followed by predators large and small, resulting in some of the best summer wildlife viewing in Botswana. Sightings are good around Kalahari Plains itself, especially springbok, giraffes, gemsbok, red hartebeest and steenbok, as well as predators such as lions, cheetahs, leopards, brown hyaenas and caracal for the lucky. Small predators range from blackbacked jackals, meerkat (suricates), Cape foxes, honey badger and a dozen mongoose species.

* With the camp being in a National Park, we adhere to the regulations of the Department of Wildlife and National Parks restricting off-road driving and night driving.

Kalahari Plains – Guided Nature Walks *

In addition to the San Cultural Walk, guided nature walks are on offer. This activity is an approximate duration of one and a half hours, departing camp just before sunrise and moving toward one of the pans in the area for a more up close and personal focus on the fauna and flora. The Kalahari is typically a dry desert-type system, when game viewing moves into the vegetated dune belt and pan systems surrounding the fossilised valleys: most antelope move into the thickets to feed on small shrubs and tubers.

* Seasonal and subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide
