A unique quad bike safari into the wilderness of Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Pans, and a night or two sleeping on bedrolls under the stars on giant rocks.

Clear, bright stars reaching from horizon to horizon, meeting the white expanse of the Makgadikgadi describing the curvature of the earth; a full 360° panorama.  A raw, exhilarating ride across the pan on quad bikes to the picture-perfect Kubu Island – a surreal ‘scape of huge round boulders and the twisted trunks of baobab trees.  This giant playground and archaeological curiosity is best explored as the red sun descends, chilled drink in hand.

Cosy bedrolls are laid out on the warm granite and, following a friendly meal around the camp-fire, you lie back and gaze at your stellar ceiling, the silence of the desert carried on the clear night air.
