Kalahari Desert Safari.  Exploring Botswana’s Kalahari on a private safari

Old-style safari adventure in to areas inaccessible to permanent camps - the emphasis here is as much on the wilderness and isolation as the game-viewing

A mobile safari is the only way to get into the Kalahari proper.  Camps and lodges are all confined by the absence of water and infrastructure, to the peripheries of this hostile expanse.  So this is a real old-style safari adventure, like the old days, except without all the porters and pith helmets.  You’ll be among the very few each year who venture out here.

During the first few months of the year, the rains turn the valleys green and lush, attracting great herds of springbok, gemsbok and their accompanying predators: the great black-maned lions of the Kalahari, and cheetah.  In the afternoons, dark thunder clouds develop, turning the landscape into a dramatic canvas and a photographer’s dream.
