Arrival Day
*

Our professional guide will meet you upon your arrival at Maun International Airport and escort you to your accommodation. Our journey will begin tomorrow, where our official vehicles will drive you out into the untamed wilderness of the Kalahari.

Day 1: Drive Day to the Kalahari

After an early breakfast, our expedition into the Kalahari Wilderness begins. We spend the day getting to know our guide as they seamlessly navigate the twists and turns of their home country. This region of Botswana does not contain their wildlife with fencing, but rather allows them to roam the plains unfettered. Upon arrival at our campsite, our guide will help set up our home for the next few days and dinner will be prepared, followed by a leisurely evening exploring our new territory and relaxing around the campfire. (1 Night)

Day 2: Central Kalahari

After a restful night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast, we depart for our first game drive of the tour. The Kalahari is teeming with wildlife, and our first drive of the day should allow us to get up close and personal with some of Africa’s most exotic wildlife. The Kalahari is home to herds of giraffe, wildebeest and springboks, as well as some of Africa’s most fearsome predators such as the cheetah, leopard, and of course the Kalahari lion. Lunch will follow, allowing us the rest of the day to continue our quest for stunning views of nature at it’s finest. We return to our camp for dinner and a campfire, listening to the sounds of the Kalahari as we drift off to sleep. (1 Night)

Day 3: Central Kalahari

Our experience continues with another early morning game drive as our fearless tracker uses their inexplicable skills to locate some of Africa’s quintessential wildlife. After a picnic lunch, we take a trip through the wilderness, spotting game on our way to the next stop, where we will interact with the famed Bushmen of the Kalahari. Constantly fighting to keep their land their own, we will learn firsthand what it takes to thrive in this unforgiving environment, and come away with a profound respect for our new friends. A restful evening back at camp awaits. (1 Night)

Day 4: Central Kalahari

We continue our journey in Central Kalahari with a final day full of action packed game drives. After a morning viewing, we head back to camp for a Sunday style brunch, soaking in the beauty of our backyard. Our day will conclude with a final game drive at sunset, and a campfire style dinner. (1 Night)

Day 5: Central Kalahari/Maun

After 3 full days exploring the Kalahari, it is finally time to pack up and head off. We depart with a final glimpse of the Kalahari wilderness, soaking in it’s beauty one final time before our guide safely escorts us back to Maun. Don’t let the adventure stop here though, as Maun is the gateway to more splendors of the African wilderness, including trips to Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta, and the Moremi Wildlife Preserve. (1 Night)
